Unlock the objective behind the meditation which imparts clarity of though, culminating in self-awareness and spiritual peace.
Led by Biju Biju Jayaraaj who was born into a traditional, but progressive thinking family in Kerala, the southern state of India, also known as the land of Ayurveda. Having lived his early years in South India, steeped in its rich history and culture, Biju systematically practiced all aspects of Hinduism, including visiting temples regularly.
After 26 years of living a religious, traditional and ritualistic life, he moved to the Middle East where he worked for a few years before he became an entrepreneur. He set up a business, which grew exponentially in the first few years itself, having a team with over 24 nationalities, offering him a global perspective. In 2008, when the subprime crisis hit the UAE, everything slowed down and business was affected, but he strived on.
One thing that Biju has learnt through all of this is that nothing is in his hands – be it success or failure.His definition of success is the realization that you are a ‘nobody’ – you are just a pawn, making the moves based on the circumstances. All of this is what moved him gradually towards a more spiritual life, which changed his outlook and thinking completely.
He attributes his clarity of thought and self-awareness, which brings him spiritual peace, to his life experiences. He has the ability to process things in his mind and offer a perspective unknown to most. Four years back he moved to LA and has been practicing yoga at Hot8 yoga, leading a much-disciplined life.
