Many believe that Spirituality lacks logic.  That Spirituality is personal, emotional, etc.   And so Spirituality is for the non-thinking.  Actually Spirituality is the most logical science!

By thinking about thinking we will explore how the world, society, even our bodies are One.  In our observations of the macro we will be ready to explore the micro, the nature of human pursuits.  Here too, we are all One.

Sanatana Dharma (Perennial Philosophy) is not an action rather is a vision.   Those living by vision enjoy the unity in diversity.  Those living by sight simply fear diversity.  Imagine the impact if more people were joyful rather than fearful?  Spirituality is the most logical science.

Having experienced much of what the world has to offer, from studying at the Ivey School of Business to traveling to almost fifty countries, Vivekji still sought more.  Tired of the inconsistent peace associated with extrovert pursuits, he decided to turn his journey within.

In 2005 Vivekji was accepted to the intensive residential Vedanta Course at Chinmaya Mission’s Sandeepany Sadhanalaya in India.  There he studied and lived under the guidance of Pujya Swami Tejomayananda* for over two years!

Discovering that the only purpose of life is to be infinitely, constantly and unconditionally happy, Vivekji continues to explore this purpose by sharing the same with others.

Through his inspiring, innovative and insightful style, Vivekji makes Vedanta relevant, relatable and reachable. Intrigued that a young-adult born and raised in Canada would walk such an untraveled path, an array of community groups, academic forums, professional associations, medical departments and religious organizations around the world (i.e. The Office of the Pentagon in Washington, Regional Mental Health Care Hospital in London, etc.) have invited Vivekji to share his wisdom on Life and living.

Vivekji is the Resident Acharya (Professor) of Chinmaya Mission Niagara, Visiting Acharya of Chinmaya Mission Pittsburgh and the Deputy Director of Chinmaya Yuva Kendra (Youth Centre) West. 

*Pujya Swami Tejomayananda is the current head of Chinmaya Mission ( established in 1953 under the guidance of the world-renowned Vedanta teacher, His Holiness Swami Chinmayananda. With over 300 centres worldwide, the Mission teaches the ancient vedantic wisdom of universal oneness and how to realize it in one’s life.
