Nithya Shanti is an internationally respected spiritual teacher, seminar leader, writer and educator, committed to sharing practical wisdom teachings for happiness and enlightenment with people in a joyful and transformational way.
Blending a deep study of ancient scriptures, along with a broad survey of contemporary discoveries, Nithya Shanti specializes in facilitating profound shifts in awareness for people to release limitations and awaken latent potentials for a fulfilling life.
An interest in inner growth and spirituality from an early age inspired him to study with many wise teachers and awakened masters. Not content with intellectual understanding alone, he began a daily practice of meditation at the age of sixteen and attended many meditation retreats.
After six years of living in forest meditation monasteries in Thailand, Sri Lanka and also various parts of India and the US, he was guided to live, learn and serve in broader ways than the traditional role of a monk permitted. With the blessings of his teachers, he stepped out of the robes in early 2008 and now shares joyful teachings in happiness joy shops, youth programs, corporate training and meditation retreats around the world.
