Rajesh was introduced into the many different faiths of India including Hinduism, Sikhism, Christianity, Sufism and Buddhism from a very early age. These faiths formed a large part of his upbringing.
His formal training started in 1997, when he was taught a systematic practice of Meditation by the Himalayan Institute. He is a student of Pandit Rajmani Tigunait who continues to inspire both his spiritual and family journeys. In 2001 he was initiated into the tradition of the Himalayan Masters on the banks of the Ganges at the Maha Kumbh Mela. He has been practicing Meditation on almost a daily basis since 1997.
Rajesh has traveled extensively to deepen his practice and has worked with various traditions including Tibetan and Japanese Buddhism, Sufism and Sikhism.
Rajesh is a Barrister by profession specialising in Human Rights Law from Chambers in London. He is also a humanitarian and environmentalist where he has worked with and founded organisations around the world whose objectives are the rejuvenation of land and communities and promoting human rights. He helped found the first Indian vegetarian restaurant in Worcestershire with his family (of which he is particularly proud) and runs Poulstone Court retreat centre.
He enjoys cooking, gardening, playing the sitar, reading Eastern philosophy and loves being with his family.
