About The Founder - Rishi Kewalramani
Rishi Kewalramani has founded the Vedanta Wisdom Institute, a registered charitable organisation, to take Vedanta to people the world over. The Trust is dedicated to the dissemination of Vedanta, Indian philosophy - the oldest management school in the world.
Rishi Kewalramani has spent more than a decade in the study and research of Vedanta. He has a first class academic record in Management and has had a distinguished management career which he relinquished to devote himself full time to the interpretation and re-presentation of Vedanta for the modern generation.
Great thinkers and intellectuals like Shri Adi Shankaracharya, , Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Guru Nanak, Shakespeare, Swami Vivekananda, Shirdi Sai, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Radhakrishnan, Shri Ramana Maharishi, Swami Chinmayananda, Swami Parthasarathy and the likes generated awareness in large numbers of people about the need for radical inner change in order to enable people from all walks of life to fulfil their potential and to create a life of success and harmony. The works of Rishi Kewalramani draws inspiration from such eminent and outstanding masters.
Drawn to the study of the sublime & exhilarating knowledge of Vedanta when he was a graduate student, he eventually joined the esteemed international Vedantic institutes of Swami Chinmayananda (Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, in Mumbai) and Vedanta Academy ( in the outskirts of the metropolitan city of Pune) and collected the captivating wisdom of the ten principal Upanishads, the Brahma Sutras and the Bhagawad Geeta (Prasthana Traya) - the matchless records of a scientific exposition of the ultimate truths of life, along with many ancillary philosophical treatises as well as select works from English literature and poetry of great English poets such as Shakespeare, Milton and the like.
Carrying on with his pursuit of truth, Rishi Kewalramani shares his observations with interested audiences lovingly and enthusiastically through talks and writings.
He teaches the Vedantic texts to the general public. Speaking at many academic, social and business settings both at home and abroad, He delivers talks on a variety of topics in the fields of spirituality, human values, management and science & philosophy.
Rishi Kewalramani presents the ancient wisdom of India in a contemporary fashion and motivates his audiences to live inspired lives. His discourses on the Bhagawad Geeta and the Upanishads are well received and have been sponsored by prominent organisations.
His thought evolved through coming in contact with the works of several great thinkers, the most important among them being the internationally eminent philosopher- Jagat Guru Bhagvan Sri Adi Shankaracharya- the foremost and the greatest historical exponent of Advaita Vedanta, and Shri Ramana Maharishi- one of the greatest apostles of truth.
To develop a strong character we need to create a base of strong values. The talks and management seminars enable participants to question, explore, reflect, and act to get the best out of themselves. It helps discover the vast potential within and inspires them to be leaders in their respective fields.
His speeches, which are like sharing of thoughts, stir our own thinking. Treating the audience as his co-travelers on the inward journey, he never seems to be interested in influencing their thinking or to prove his own point. "Each flower blossoms in its own way and in its own time" says he.
