KULDEEP KALAVAR

Founder, UNLEARN LIVING

Kuldeep Kalavar completed Senior Cambridge in 1961 from an English missionary school in Calcutta. He studied at Ramakrishna Mission College, Narendrapur (Calcutta), and thereafter graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology – Mesra Ranchi in 1968. He completed his Masters in Management from Pune university and worked with two multinationals, Philips and Lipton. He started his own business in 1990.

Besides professional interests, the study of spirituality and Vedanta is his passion. He was exposed to the Bible in school and to Swami Vivekananda’s writings at the Ramakrishna Mission, both of which left deep impressions on his mind. His quest for answers in life were triggered after a deeply personal event that occurred a few months after he graduated from engineering. One morning his father just collapsed and passed away while they were having a conversation. Stunned by his untimely death his mind was inundated with questions – Where did he go? What happened to him? Where is he now?

His search for answers led him to several books, missions, religions and masters. The teachings of Swami Vivekananda, Swami Sivananda, Swami Rama, Swami Chinmayananda and other towering spiritual personalities served to give him a firm foundation in Vedanta. In 1990 he came in close touch with Swami Brahmananda of Chinmaya Mission who became his Guru and guide.

In 1992 he started sharing the spiritual knowledge he had gained. Starting with a small group of 15 students he focused on showing them how to connect Vedanta principles to real life experiences. The participants found that these ancient principles could be applied without exception to professional, social and personal issues. Their lives were transformed.

In the year 2000 Mr. Kalavar set up a Trust with a few others to provide medical attention for senior citizens on a no profit – no loss basis. During this journey he found that many seniors were unable to reconcile with mental traumas and their life experiences. Through his years of experience in spirituality he was aware that the challenges would vary with every generation and society but if the same fundamentals were adapted and applied in the light of fresh understanding it could help resolve them.

He designed a workshop called “A Course In Living” for the seniors to help transform their mindsets. The result was that individual personalities changed dramatically. Their children noticed the change and enquired about the workshop as they too had issues that plagued them. Would this course work for them?

UNLEARN LIVING is an evolved program that addresses many issues and fears troubling the present generation. Since the course covers every aspect of human life, it enables you to understand your problems and transform them into opportunities making you strong and IN-dependent!
