He then graduated in electrical engineering from Madras University. He worked in the field of control systems as a researcher, creative innovator and senior management professional for thirty-eight years.
A systemic thinker and avid reader, he has fully devoted the last sixteen years to the study of consciousness, cognitive science, cosmology, mythology, quantum physics and spirituality. He regularly gives motivational talks and conduct workshops on science and spirituality to a varied audience.

This is the second volume in the series of books published under the title ‘Self Empowering Wisdom –Through Deeper Interpretations of Mythologies, Sciences and Spiritual Texts.’ It contains 85 short articles on various spiritual and existential themes aimed at the elevation of human consciousness to a higher level. The purpose of this book is to collate the wisdom, which is increasingly revealing itself in our lives, as the consciousness of Homo Sapiens is being peeled open like the opening of a bud into a fragrant flower or the metamorphosis of the pupae into a lovely butterfly.
This is an ongoing journey of human consciousness ascending through the wisdom of the ancients which was enclosed in mythological narrations, then through the deep insight of spiritual masters more explicitly expressed in sacred texts and now, in the present age, through scientific discoveries unravelling the cosmic dimension and the nature of our existence. The content of each article is to bring to light the interconnectivity so that the esoteric and mystical dimensions of mythologies and scriptures are made easy for grasping through current knowledge in the area of sciences, psychology and arts.
I am sure that this book will be an empowering tool for all seekers as to the true purpose of our creation and the multiverse in which we live.
Mystical Delights Through the Senses is a book of poems intended to evoke the mystical attributes hidden in our inner being to break forth into our experiential domain. The very inputs for this process are the perception of beauty and grandeur in the world around us and in the Cosmos through our senses. Poetry is the engine through which the mundane inputs the author receives is translated into a medium of emotional transformation.
The kaleidoscope of dimensions from which the poems have originated provides rich content for different readers to maximize their reading pleasure. To break the seriousness of reading these thought-provoking verses, a few limericks have also been penned.
While the journeys of the author in gathering these experiences have been physical, virtual and mystical, the reader is privileged to experience pleasurable emotions from the comfort of his or her armchair.

Just like a bee that gathers the sweetest of nectar from various flowers, this book of empowering thoughts, aimed towards the elevation of human consciousness, has gathered wisdom hidden in thousands of spiritual traditions in the vast garden of human thought ever since the Homo Sapiens looked up at the heavens and questioned the full extent of his self-awareness.
Since the advent of Renaissance, the human spirit has been seeking the nature of reality beyond the dogmatic diktats of limited perceptions as envisaged by various belief systems. These belief systems had their roots in archaic, magical, mythological consciousness of man. Today, science, especially quantum physics, cosmology and discoveries in evolutionary biology and cognitive sciences, as well as the in-depth knowledge in other fields, such as Jungian psychology, interpretation through allegorical synthesis of mythology by stalwarts such as Joseph Campbell, has opened up the flood gates of information, which enables us to construct a wholly new level of understanding. When this knowledge is mapped on to ancient scriptures and sacred texts, a revelatory platform is provided to probe the deeper nature of reality and our own spirituality.
This book is the beehive of spiritual nectar which is characterized by its non-dual, undifferentiated attributes provided for your nourishment.
