Every skill, trade or art requires training to flourish. Similarly, an individual needs to be trained for about two decades for becoming an engineer, doctor, or a manager. An athlete or an artist follows the same path before achieving the success. In the similar fashion, learning spirituality also requires sustained and disciplined approach to unlock the treasures of inner wisdom.

More than 1100 engineers from India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar have been trained through 50-odd training programs.
In addition to his above expertise and experience, he has spoken on spirituality at a host of institutions in the past, such as IIT Kharagpur, IIT Guwahati, BIT Meshra, NIT Jamshedpur, University of Kolkata.
