Nithya Shanti is an internationally respected spiritual teacher, writer and educator committed to sharing practical wisdom teachings for happiness and enlightenment with people in a joyful and transformational way.
An interest in inner growth and spirituality from an early age inspired him to study with many different teachers. Not content with intellectual understanding alone Shanti began a daily practice of meditation at the age of 16 and attended many meditation retreats.
Nithya Shanti completed an MBA from XLRI, Jamshedpur and then worked in the corporate sector. Despite having a promising career, he was drawn to further pursuit of his spiritual quest. In 2002, he ordained as a Buddhist Monk.
After six years of living in forest meditation monasteries in Thailand, Sri Lanka and various parts of India and the US he was guided to live, learn and serve in broader ways than the traditional role of being a monk permitted. Shanti relinquished his role as a monk in 2008 to pursue a life of teaching, training and meditation retreats around the world.
In 2010 Shanti founded the Nithya Shanti Foundation, a not for profit organisation, with the aim of addressing the challenges of contemporary life through practical spiritual teachings based on mindfulness and compassion. The vision of the Foundation is to awaken a culture based on wisdom and joy by encouraging dialogue and inquiry into what is real happiness.
