Shri Vethathiri Maharishi

About Vethathiri Maharishi

Shri Vethathiri Maharishi (1911–2006) was a spiritual leader and founder-trustee of “The World Community Service Centre”. From his youth he was driven by the desire for knowledge and in particular strove to find answers to three questions:

What is God?                  

What is life?                      

Why is poverty in the world?

The search to find these answers as well as to further his lot in life led him into various fields of endeavor, including becoming a qualified practitioner of two systems of Indian indigenous medicine, Ayurveda and Siddha, and certified practitioner Homeopathy as well.

Life History – Early life

After spending several years in various minor employments, he established a textile concern that grew to employ over 2,000 workers on a profit-sharing basis.

Maharishi regularly participated in intense meditation and introspection, which he claims brought him full enlightenment at the age of thirty-five.

At the age of fifty, he closed his commercial ventures and devoted himself solely to spiritual service. However, he remained a “householder”, i.e., he did not break his family ties or take vows of renunciation, but rather lived in the indigenous Siddha tradition, maintaining family ties.

Traveling around the world

Between 1972–1993, he visited the USA, Europe, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Japan and Mexico. On 9th January 1975 Vethathiri Maharishi’s gave immortal speech at the United Nations Organization, New York, U.S.A.

Spiritual Leader

At the age of fifty he closed his commercial ventures and devoted himself solely to spiritual service so as to guide sincere spiritual aspirants by transmitting and sharing with them his experiences and revelations of Truth.

Even though his life has long been dedicated spiritual and social service he has remained a “householder”, i.e. he has not broken his family ties and taken vows of renunciation, but rather lived in the indigenous Siddha tradition, maintaining family ties and fulfilling his duties.

Vethathiri’s Science of living ( vethathiriyam)

Vethathiri’s lifetime works are called Vethathiriyam, which literally translates as a roadmap to the mountain of knowledge. He claimed that a deep understanding of nature is essential for living in harmony with the law of nature, while balancing material well-being with spiritual progress.

Vethathiri Maharishi’s claimed to synthesize a complete science of living for the betterment of humanity through: Simplified Kundalini Yoga meditation, Physical Exercises, Kaya Kalpa Yoga and Introspections.

Model of the Universe

Shri Vethathiri Maharishi gives us a comprehensive and integrated revelation of the existence and functions of the One Reality; his exposition from the origin of the cosmos to the observed natural phenomena comprises the Vethathiriyan Model of the Universe.

With this comprehensive view, science and religion are reconciled and unified, to their mutual enhancement and completion.

By integrating science and religion, global harmony and peace will follow, based on universal understanding of One Truth, and reverence and respect for all its manifestations.
