Mohan Chandra Sivasankaran was born in a practicing Hindu household in October 1948 in the city of Trivandrum , Kerala , India . My Late Father, K.G. Sivasankaran Nair , retired educator , and late mother Sarojini Devi , housewife , were pious Hindus . They were more spiritual than religious . I grew up in such an household . I was exposed to spiritual matters from very young age. Later in life , after graduating from University of Kerala , India majoring in Physics and completing a deploma program in Aeronautical Engineering I started my career as a teacher, teaching physics, mathematics and engineering subjects . About 35 years ago I seriously started reading Hindu scriptures especially Vedas , Upanishads and Commentaries by ancient sages , and practicing on them . This book is the result of such efforts. My beloved wife, Salini Anandavally, has been very inspirational to this effort.
