Life is a compendium of enriching experiences. Begin your journey here… Welcome to this website!

 This is me in the given picture. You and I are one. 

We are cousins!! We will know when we truly meet.
Not rarely do I meet a perfect stranger, and yet it takes no time to
feel as if I have known them all my life – because of the ease of the
ensuing interaction and congruence. When I mull over this phenomenon, it seems to become apparent that, although apart, we must have been
swimming in the same stream of life for generations.

It is ordained, as this stream continues to flow and will finally be
engulfed by the vast ocean of life, my circle of connectedness with the
entire human race will widen..”

Integrity with all is a certainty!

Whats's New?


At a very young age Anil Kumar sensed conflict, physical, social and psychological, both inside and around him, and discovered a secret ally which he calls Nature that has always given him the strength to withstand adversity and courage….

Anil's Inspiration

Enlightenment is a state of awakening when you realise that you’ve been swimming naked in the sea of illusion.
After enlightenment it matters not. even if others find you in pieces for now you know how to be in peace.
– Anil Kumar

Anyone can lift up a dead body,
but to lift up an ill-fated living, pulsating,
despairing soul to new heights and restore faith in them
that they are special and blessed
takes a person of rare qualities.

– Anil Kumar

See any river as time running by.
Race not with time, it’s the obdurate winner.
The longer you’re sheltered in its shadow,
the longer lasting will be your youthfulness.
– Anil Kumar

We never stop thinking; hence we are constantly making our world from our thoughts and 
responses to our surrounding. Hence we should harness thoughts that are fit for our desired world. Our mind is in our control when we are aware of our thoughts and emotions, until then it has free reins to make us its victims.
– Anil Kumar


The Sufi corner

Visualise a necklace of golden thread running from your heart through all of Nature’s creations. 
Now will know and wear Oneness
 – Anil Kumar

The one who has travelled beyond the domains visible to the naked eye, sees no difference between life and death.
 – Anil Kumar

When we wake up we will see
that we have been blind.
– Anil Kumar

When all you have is a prayer,
then there is no battle.
– Anil Kumar


Readers reviews

This is the story of how a man came to be the man he came to be. It's auto-biographical but it's not an autobiography. The author weaves the disparate, non-linear threads of his life into an eloquent tapestry of his personal spirituality. I'm by no means a spiritual man but I can certainly appreciate the underlying philosophy, and it's a fascinating journey from humble beginnings to wealth that's measured not in money or status but in a sense of inner peace.
