Hi, I'm Suresh.

(pronounced soo-ray-sh)

Yep, that young guy on the left, staring right into your soul with the cocky air of a teenager, is me. I don’t have a better photo to show you. 

I was born in the center of India and have had the privilege to learn from many great masters through books, videos, and personal meetings. I’ve been initiated into the lineage of Swami Vishnu Tirtha, and I’m a practitioner of mantra chanting and Anapanasati. I’m not a meditation expert, and I don’t claim to be one in any way. Please think of me as a fellow practitioner who likes to share what little he knows. 

I’m also an avid reader of philosophy and an occasional reader of psychology. I find Schopenhauer’s non-comforting worldview to be quite calming, and the flawless wisdom of the Upanishads and Buddha makes me feel blessed to be born in India.

That’s all from me. If you’d like to have a chat, feel free to mail me. I don’t bite (really).

Some of my favorite quotes

Now that you're here, I thought I'll share some of my all-time favorite quotes with you. I've got some of them printed where I work.

Much would have been gained if, through timely advice and instruction, young people could have had eradicated from their minds the erroneous notion that the world has a great deal to offer them.

Arthur SchopenhauerThe World as Will & Representation

It’s funny. We all have dreams. We plan our lives like we’re the captains of our fate. But we’re passengers. We go where fate takes us.

PassengersMovie

How is there laughter, how is there joy, as this world is always burning? Why do you not seek a light, ye who are surrounded by darkness?

Look at your body— A painted puppet, a poor toy of jointed parts ready to collapse, A diseased and suffering thing With a head full of false imaginings.

The BuddhaThe Dhammapada, Verse 146-147
