Through intensive practice of the science of yoga and several visits to India, doors of perception opened to Rakesh which provided the answers and experiences his soul had yearned for.
His entire family, including his father, mother, and two older brothers, like Rakesh, spent many years living in the Himalayan Mountains studying with their guru. The roles they had developed with each other in the earlier years of their family life were replaced by becoming each other’s supporters on the path to enlightenment. At different times throughout the decades, they had centers for yoga and meditation in Montreal and Vancouver where anyone could come to learn from them.
Rakesh’s diverse life experiences have given him far-reaching wisdom and empathy, making him a most wonderful counsellor and guide in personal, practical, and spiritual matters. After his guru left his body, Rakesh decided to devote his life solely to helping others in finding true freedom and happiness through meditation, higher awareness, inner freedom, and a practical approach to daily life situations. He has taught yoga and meditation in Montreal and Vancouver, Canada.
Rakesh received an honourary teaching certificate from the Vishwa Unnayan Samsad institute (the World Development Parliament).
