The Guru – An established thinker, philosopher and self-management expert!


Vinayji, an established thinker, philosopher and self-management expert, has immersed himself in the study, research and practice of Vedanta, since the age of 16. Over the past 30 years, he has inspired people, both in India and abroad, to commit to higher ideals and transform themselves to lead a more purposeful and fulfilling life. 

His in-depth understanding, inspiring oration and lucid explanation translates complex Vedic knowledge into valuable lessons in applied philosophy. His appeal lies in the presentation of these truths with absolute precision, effortless ease and consummate wit.

Vinayji cross references concepts from various scriptures and a range of western and oriental philosophers and litterateurs. In his uniquely interactive style, he cements the learning with practical tips for day to day living. 

He founded Wisdom Foundation, dedicated to spreading the glorious truths of Sanatana Dharma – the Eternal Principles of Life and Living. His tireless work expresses through Wisdom Public Lectures, Study Classes, Workshops, Corporate Seminars, Educational Modules, Youth interactions and Retreats. Vinayji’s programs continue to enrich and impact people to be happy personally and successful professionally.

An avid athlete, he participates in marathons, besides a regular schedule of yoga, cycling and badminton. His love for nature and his passion for the outdoors has taken him on several mountain treks including the famous Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal.

Vinayji stands as a testimony to dynamic living of higher values. In the words of one of his students, “… Vinayji … is one of the most knowledgeable and committed Vedanta exponents … who not just teaches, talks and lectures on it, but truly lives it …”
