Session: Maintaining Calm in turbulent times

An engineer and MBA by education, Chanshi had a short-lived corporate career. Thereafter, he ventured into various social entrepreneurial entities with his wife, which he feels, became a means to express the creative energies within him. All his ventures have always been around helping people with an organic life of well-being and balance.

The conventional education he had, helped him much to establish an unparalleled contextual relevance to his spiritual teachings, avoiding esoteric concepts as much as possible.

Satire and humor are his fond tools. However, the underlying love and compassion can be felt in all his teachings.

Having been on the other side, he can empathize with the challenges people face on an everyday basis in their professional and personal lives. This enables him to design and deliver content that is relevant to the present-day mindsets.

Chanshi defies all notions of how a Master or Guru should be. A husband, a father and an entrepreneur, he inspires us to integrate meditation in our everyday lives. One among you, he understands you and the challenges you face every day. That’s why he is someone you can relate to.
