The Light Of Guidance
President - HRDS INDIA's Spiritual Guiding Initiative - Guru ATMA NAMBI(Atmaji)

One could contend that one of the major hindrances in defining spirituality is its relationship with religion. This confusion is further compounded as to what is necessary for attaining absolute peace. Guru Atmaji's life is a guide to people on how to live an astoundingly simple and celebrated life despite inconveniences. He has a wide range of life experiences that led him to gather wisdom and contentment which is essential to a purposeful life. Since the age of 10, five teachers of various spiritual paths have rendered him with their benediction. Further, it is only the concurrent practice that strengthened his spiritual spine. In his own words,

“‘Om lokahsamastahsukhinobhavantu’ is the principle which all must uphold in order to make this world a better place to live and rejoice”.

Swamiji through his words of wisdom proposes that spiritual well-being results in the enhancement of one’s inner resources. Inner strength is also identified as a result of spiritual soundness. AtmaJi’s life has been dedicated to the deprived where he delivers his charitable works through remunerations of HRDS INDIA, a long-standing Non-profit Organization that sheds under his transcendent umbrella of love and care. In a pragmatic sense, he believes that the best way to mitigate the miserable lives of the impoverished is by first providing them with food and then with a mode to eke income for a sustainable livelihood.

Born on March 1955, Atma Nambi is an enlightened master in the guise of an ordinary mystic. At an incredibly young age, AtmaNambi or Guruji as widely known was introduced to his spiritual safari with the help of his graceful gurus. Several karmic, yogic, and obscure manifestations were propelled at his disposal which transformed him from mundane to a mightier man. Regular contemplation of the divine inside assembled all the cosmic energy at a focal façade of his mind, and subsequently, he received enlightenment. He considers this spiritual awakening as a blissful reward for humanity.

Right in childhood, he pooled himself with a superior consciousness in a splendidly beautiful Indian village. With an inner drive of diving deep into the self and spirituality, he decided to clear the paths for seekers and to lead the progeny into spirituality through meditation, yoga, and kriya. He has dedicated himself to being part of creating a new humanity. “All my spiritual expeditions ended with the experience I had on October 7, 1994, transforming me completely. It has changed my life completely,” claims Guruji.

Throughout his journey, he focused on providing help to everyone around him in guidance for inner peace and happiness and getting over one’s insecurities and fear. “I believe that the purpose of my life is to be a part of creating a conscious humanity and a healthy world for mankind to thrive,” said Guruji. People who have been in close contact with Guruji describe him as a multidimensional and casual master who can easily connect with people through his relaxed, outgoing, and humorous personality. Just to be in the presence of his inner silence, brings healing and connects you to your true nature.

Speaking about spiritual enlightenment, he explains that the description for enlightenment varies from person to person. For one it will be a powerful force pulling oneself towards the light for and for some it's an ignition sensed inside. However, it consists of an irreversible separation of the spiritual self, which is divine, from the mind.

According to Guruji, if one prepares the body and mind and creates an internal climate, the result will happen on its own. For this, the sadhana that is dear to one must be practiced. His healing is shared through energy wisdom practices and effective meditation techniques. He guides his followers dynamically to his/her natural state of consciousness. His techniques are powerful, simple, and easy to use from moment to moment in everyday life. The aim is for everyone to become master of his/her own Self and thereby bring out the inner peace and full potential that is within everyone.

A travel enthusiast, Guruji feels that learning is an integral part of life and it can never end. He is the founder of ‘Upanisha Ananda Mandir’ which is a spiritual and meditation centre run by enthusiastic seekers in Tamil Nadu, India. The Trust aims to spread the message of love, compassion and brotherhood, good health, prosperity, and meditation for all. ‘Upanisha’ has come from the root of Upanishads, meaning ‘the place where one sits near the truth’. By sitting near the truth in surrender one attains Ananda (divine bliss). Then the place becomes Mandir (temple).

Atma Ji guides us on how to live a happy and content life, sharing simple, practical, and powerful techniques for people of all ages and families, schools, industries, institutions, organizations, with a wide range of needs. For the past four years, people have been helped worldwide by Atma Nambi’s life wisdom and techniques as well as by his transformative and healing energy. When asked how to find one’s true passion or gift, he said that every individual born on this planet is unique. But sadly, with the societal pressure from family and friends, many are forced to follow the dictates of society that don't let them bloom. The path one must follow should come from within and those who are confused, mediate and introspect deeply to find an answer. Like clear water emerges when the water in a pool can settle down without any disturbance, meditation helps not only to experience God but also to make the right decisions in life.

Guruji has also participated in the 1st World Parliament on Spirituality, December 2012, held at Hyderabad, India. He also gave his support in requesting UNO for announcing June 21st as International Yoga Day. He was honoured with Baba Saheb National Award in the year 2016 for his contributions to society.

In recognition of his spiritual guidance and services throughout the world, he has been awarded by Global Achievers Foundation New Delhi in the year 2016. Atma Ji conducts Mass Awakenings across the globe for which he travels and connects to many countries to inculcate Spiritual harmony among the minds of people. He has devotees all over the world with Spiritual convention centers in Brazil and Chicago (US). He is presently associated as an Honorary Advisor with Peace Society Worldwide which is a Global Civil Organization for Universal Peace and Harmony. He conducts counselling sessions for the students to nurture their abilities. He creates a sense of service in every individual steering their way to help others for a better society removing the negative aspects of the society. He believes that spirituality can bring harmony and he propounds to make the world a Temple of Peace.

A traveller and nature lover to the core, Atma Nambi Ji believes that it is important to experience empathy with all life and be in tune with mother earth. On his visit to Rishikesh, years ago Guru Ji met Aji Krishnan, Founder Secretary of HRDS INDIA. Since then, Guru Ji has maintained a close association with HRDS INDIA and its noble activities.

Incorporating spirituality into the materialistic setting of human life requires sensitivity in many ways where hope, meaning, and belief systems are articulated not just through theories but with a practical experience.

Vice President - K.G.Venugopal

K.G. Venugopal was born and brought up in Neyyattinkara, Thiruvananthapuram. After completing the school studies Venugopal alias KG came to Thiruvananthapuram for his college studies. He did his Pre Degree and BA (Sanskrit) in Samskrutha College, Thiruvananthapuram. During the early days of college education, KG got in touch with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and turned an active Swayamsevak. However, he could take both Sangh work and studies together. And, he came out with flying colors in both fields.

During those days he got several occasions to meet late Eknath Ranade, the veteran RSS leader and the tallest figure behind the magnificent Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Kanyakumari. At that time late senior Sangh Pracharak V.P. Janardhanan was his guide and philosopher. These links inculcated in his thought process the idea of leading the dedicated life as a Sangh Pracharak. Naturally, he came out as a Sangth Pracharak in 1972 as soon as he completed his BA.

He started his Pracharak career in 1972 in Muvattupuzha Thaluk; he shouldered direct Sangh work. After hardly a year he was assigned to the Kerala unit of ABVP, he took over as the state organizing Secretary of the Nationalist Student Movement. He carried out that demanding job for 13 years, including the black period of the country’s history, Emergency declared by the fascist regime of Smt. Gandhi. KG was arrested, along with three other Pracharaks, on June 29, 1975, at Madhava Nivas, the state Karyalaya of Kerala RSS. It was the first ‘Emergency arrest’ in the state. Fake cases were registered against them. Since it was the era of ‘committed judicial’, justice and judicial impartiality were mere wishful thoughts. They were jailed for several weeks together. Later on they were released since they had undergone the jail terms fit for the alleged allegations leveled against them by the police.

ABVP achieved wonderful gains under the able leadership of KG with student units in majority of the colleges in the state. His underground activities during Emergency were eventful. He travelled throughout the state and organized students against the Emergency. Most of them participated in the nationwide Satyagraha (November 14, 1975 to January 14, 1976). The same time he was assigned to make visits to different parts of the country carrying different missions assigned by the Kerala state RSS leadership. Despite being the ABVP State Organizing Secretary, he shouldered various, crucial missions as per the decisions of the RSS leadership. The present day national leaders of BJP and several ministers in the union government were KG’s ABVP colleagues post Emergency. Our beloved Hon’ble PM Modiji, Hon’ble Vice President Sri. M. Venkaiah Naiduji, late Arun Jaitleji, were some of them. The love, affection and guidance of State and National leaders of RSS were the most powerful assets KG could avail and enjoy during those Days.

In Kerala, ABVP could develop a dynamic and charismatic team of college students during that period. It comprised of P.S. Sreedharan Pillai, V. Muraleedharan, Adv. C.K. Sajinarayanan, presently Missoram Governor, Union Minister and BMS National President respectively and several others. During the last three years of Pracharakship, KG worked as the District Pracharak of RSS in Thiruvananthapuram and later as the state Organizing Secretary of VanVasi Kalyanashramam. After a long innings of 15 years blessed Pracharak life, KG went to family life. And, he worked as Area Manager and Marketing Manager for couple of nation-level companies. Then KG associated with Sree Ramakrishna Sevashramam, Ernakulam, for 20 years. He took up various responsibilities there, including that of the General Secretary. The team established a well-known and reputed Old Age Home (Vanaprastha).They also organize various youth and student programmes successfully. Those days KG had organized notable events and various sociocultural and spiritual programs in various parts of the state.

KG initiated Rural Development Programmes, adopted villages for the total uplift, including health and shelter. KG’s team developed a team to help and guide financially backward and talented students; it is to give them financial support for their education including higher/and professional studies. The team continued it successfully and the beneficiaries lead a satisfactory life today. In this regard hundreds of families are indebted to KG for his yeoman service. On top of this KG is always on run to solve several issues of his organizational colleagues, friends and even their friends.

Hundreds of families depend on him for solving even their family issues. His notable feature is the presence of his mind and the patience he entrusts in undertaking every activity. Even the nearest and dearest of KG is incognizant about the fact that the Kochi Antharashtra Pusthakotsavam (International Book Festival) is his brain child. Even after 23 years of its inception, its office bearers still seek KG’s advices and guidance for its smooth running. Hardly any spiritual program takes place in the state, whichever Mat conducts it, seeks KG’s active presence and guidance.

KG believes that his source of inspiration and energy is none other than Swarg Bhaskar Raoji, the patriarch who molded the organization of RSS and thousands of workers in Kerala. His very reminiscences give the perennial flow of light and heat to several generations. Therefore, KG holds the position of General Secretary of the Bhaskar Rao Smaraka Samiti headquartered in Ernakulam.

KG has travelled to almost all states in the country. He still continues it. His love, brotherly affection and round-the-clock accessibility are unique compared to the contemporary social workers. Throughout his journey he was looking for an NGO which can take his ideology to the next level. He has joined HRDS INDIA as Chairman of Policy Formulation Committee

Founder - Secretary - Aji Krishnan

To know and explore the real India one has to linger around the street lanes of remote villages in India since that’s the place where one can readily find the real and bare faces of India.Aji Krishnan, fortunate enough to be born in one such village of Kerala. It is the key reason as to why he meticulously identifies the environmental impediments, from generations their family were into pastoral and agro based occupations. His father, Sri C.K. Krishnan was a planter and a frontier in bringing up group farming in the high ranges of Kerala and mother, Smt. V.K. Omana was a prolific and devoted teacher.

His parents influenced him largely, if he has attained the disposition of being a philanthropist today; it is because of his father who played a significant role in bringing poor farmers together and forms the group to do group cultivation, which helped the farmers intensely. Since his parents kept accommodated and he is the eldest at home from the nascent young age, he had to become the mentor for both his sibling and advocate to resolve any crisis. These obligations naturally made him a matured and helpful person that he is today. He was an active participant in the co-curricular activities in his school. During his University graduation, he was a state committee member of the Left Wing student group. He additionally conducted many educational reformation strikes. He was arrested by police and was put behind the bars. Further, he went through tormenting polite harassment as well. He was an enterprising and vibrant member of the cultural club in school and showed his keen interest in the rest of the academic and non-academic pursuits. Apart from these plenty of undertakings it is his motivation, strategy and action that chalk out the characteristic traits of his fearless career.

Recapitulating the past, like any other young layman Aji Krishnan started his college days with a bucket of sky-high dreams, all good and bad encounters of his school life and experiences he then procured at pre-degree college made him ponder about our education system. The observation that illiteracy and destitution are flip sides of the same coin disturbed him, he wished to bring a change in the whole system and he started to think like a revolutionist, it was this passion that brought him into the Frontline of students’ politics. He was passionately interested and successfully participated in the university level election and represented the college, at that time he took leadership for many revolutionary strikes for the innovative educational reformations in Kerala for which he was not only put behind the bars but also had to go through a daunting police distress. He represented the oppressed and closed section of student segment and led forward from the front fighting for justice. Since he grew up in a village, the beauty and admiration for the nature had inspired the artist in him. He completed his bachelor’s degree in Arts, simultaneously his interest developed in sculpture making and freehand painting. In fact, he wanted to shape and design the future of humankind. He graduated from Govt. R L V College of Fine Arts, Trippunithura, specialized in sculpture making. Later he became an active member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). When cultural and intellectual degradation began in the party, the leaders of the party away from the common people due to their trading policies, soon after the sad demise of the great leader EMS, his mind, thoughts were wounded, and hence he left the party in 1995.

After completion of his graduation, Aji Krishnan had to choose between joining his family farming and plantation business or pursue his own dream; he started his career working as a sub editor of the magazine “EKOPANAM” which was published in Kerala. As part of the job he had to travel all over India during this journey he saw the actual India the poor and underprivileged, this left a big mark on his mind and he decided to uplift them from their pathetic plight of brutal realities.

Fostering Humanism through HRDS INDIA

HRDS INDIA has implemented various projects for the development of Poor, Women Empowerment, Tribal Development and Child Help projects. HRDS INDIA had successfully developed more than 3500 Self Help groups, each consisting of five people and gave them training and monetary aid for doing various types of farming. Another project of HRDS INDIA, “Micro credit initiative HRDS INDIA and Gramin bank of Bangladesh” financing program was successfully implemented with Aid from Nobel prize winner Dr. MohmmedYounis funds, which helped to create an income source for many families from the state Tamilnadu and Kerala. Under Women Empowerment project developed by HRDS INDIA more than 540 women were given skill development training and helped them to get placement in various SSI units in South India. For the school going children HRDS INDIA provides kits consisting of a pair of uniform, footwear, umbrellas and some books. As the Secretary of HRDS INDIA it is the sheer dedication and determination of Aji Krishnan the reason behind the successful implementation of all this program and the success of HRDS INDIA.

HRDS INDIA is a registered Non-Governmental Organization founded and endowed by Founder Secretary Aji Krishnan and President Dr. S. Krishnakumar IAS (Retd), Former Union Minister. The organization diligently works for the development of the Rural and Tribal people and takes development programs to interior and physically inaccessible areas of the country. HRDS INDIA had been formed in the year 1997to pursue wider social aims, through strengthening of the downtrodden and weaker sections of society. It is a committed organization with core normative values, which has extensive roots in the rural & high range territories of Kerala and is resolutely devoted in constructing houses for the indigenous native people. It is also actively involved in “DDUGKY”-A Skill development program whereby the objective is to develop a workforce empowered with the necessary and continuously upgraded skills, knowledge and internationally recognized qualifications to gain access to decent employment and ensure competitiveness in the dynamic global market.HRDS INDIA successfully identifies the needs of livelihood and understands the philosophy governing the concept of oppressed as well as segregated groups. They strive towards propagandizing activities to relieve suffering and promote the interest of the poor as their immediate concerns are being readily addressed.

One such initiative took up by HRDS INDIA is “Ekagrah”- A Scholarship Program that facilitates financial aid for higher education and consists of both need- and merit-based aid, in forms such as grants, loans, tuition remission, and private or institutional scholarships.Therefore, pecuniary variables, particularly NGO funded scholarships, plays an increasingly large role in attempts to support student success in higher education.Also there are varied functions in accordance with the programmes they undertake i.e. they provide essential basic services like housing roads, school education and primary health care services into the habitations of the marginalized people in distant remote areas.Principles of altruism and volunteerism remain key defining features of HRDS INDIA. Therefore, it makes an honest endeavor to empower the marginalized, so that they can stand on their own feet with self-reliance and depend less on charity and concessions, protecting them from the exploitative clutches of the society. Their conventional volunteerism is aimed primarily at charitable works, ushering in social reforms by providing relief and rehabilitation for the people who became victims of natural calamities like draught, flood, cyclones etc.

Another enterprising and visionary project, “Karshaka” under which there would be a large cultivation of cost effective medicinal plants as these are more affordable than conventional medicines and also is easier to obtain than prescription based medicine. The project brings awareness to the benefits of medicinal plants that has taken a backseat in the present times. How natural healing stabilizes hormones and metabolism, giving strength in the immune system with lesser side effects. HRDS INDIA simultaneously supports Niramaya Traditional Indian Medicine Research for important information about disease trends and risk factors of non-natural medicines, outcomes of treatment or public health interventions, functional abilities, patterns of health care and use.In addition to this, it runs effective projects in service deficient tribal areas and addresses the tribal problems and issues more consistently and adequately. It further provides them with requisite amenities for the noble and respectable living and imparts skill development training to the youth dwelling there.

Its efforts are directed at rehabilitating total human development and bringing a social change through awareness as well as forming local level organizations to ensure social justice and self-reliance. A very apt mode to explicate this self-reliance and social justice through empowering disempowered women in India. This productive idea is taken forward by HRDS INDIA through “Jwalamukhi”-A women empowerment project for progression of women under pressed circumstances. Hence, it is an attempt to analyze the status of women empowerment in India using various indicators like women’s financial autonomy, freedom of movement, political participation, acceptance of unequal gender role, exposure to media, access to education, experience of domestic violence, etc. The NGO is well versed in community motivation and social mobilization, thus they are increasingly delving into philanthropic programs of the government.

One of its main projects is “Sadhgraha” a Tribal housing project for three lakh houses all across India, particularly in the states like Assam, Jharkhand, Tripura, Odisha, Gujarat and Kerala wherein they facilitate free boarding and lodging to tribal children for higher education and ensures the promotion of participatory character of the highly backward and deprived children by organizing them into better social collectives. The ongoing execution of the same in Palakkad and Wayanad exhibits the project’s headway in leading it to wider horizons. It would soon cover the regions of Trivandrum and Idukki to drag the tribes of this area into the mainstream.

Mr. Dubey proudly quotes, “A Mission of the citizen of earth, by the citizen of earth and for the citizen of the earth”.

To procure his panoramic dream, Mr. Dubey has started his nature conservation campaign at a global level commencing from London, United Kingdom. The program is set to reach the maximum number of European and Middle Eastern countries including the United States of America.

He meticulously highlights the fivefold concern necessary for the survival of a living being i.e., wild-live, world, water, wood (forest), and wasteland (Jeeva, Jagat, Jal, Jangal, and Jameen). These are essentially known as five “W” in English or the five “J” and Hindi. He not only encouraged and guided people to bring such imperative changes in their lifestyle but also managed to create a chain of well acquainted and responsible citizens. He envisaged that this crisis can be curbed only through common labour.

Officer on Special Duty (OSD)- Saji V Karunakaran

Mr. Saji V Karunakaran hails from the esteemed Velliyapallil family in Meenachail taluk, Kottayam district. His father, Shri. Karunakaran, was a respected employee of the health department and held the position of state president of the Congress employee’s union. His mother, Smt. Suseela . served as a non-teaching employee at Melukavu Henrybacker College in Kottayam. Mr. Karunakaran has three sisters, one of whom is the Deputy Director of the Agriculture department, while the other two are teachers based in Bangalore and Chandigarh. He is happily married and blessed with two daughters named Varada and Theertha.

Inspired by his father's political legacy, Mr. Saji V Karunakaran decided to dedicate his life to politics. He embarked on his political journey with the Congress party, making significant contributions during the tenure of Omman Chandy and K Karunakaran (Kerala CM). At a young age, he gained recognition for his commitment and effeciveness in fulfilling his duties. However, due to internal conflicts within the party led by K Karunakaran, he decided to leave and joined the Communist Party of India (Marxist) or CPM. His active participation and dedication to the party led to his appointment as the Joint Secretary of DYFI in Kottayam District, which earned him praise and respect from the party leadership.

Although Mr. Karunakaran's political journey was initially promising, he encountered challenges within the party. He noticed a lack of quality and dedication among party members, which hindered his desire to serve society effectively. When the party removed Smt. Gauriamma, a well-regarded member, it prompted several quality members to leave, including Mr. Karunakaran. Moreover, he observed that the CPM began to compromise its core values and principles, which are crucial for any party working towards the welfare of the public. Instead of aligning with the central government and promoting national interests, the party seemed to prioritize narrow-minded interests and alliances based on religious considerations. This departure from their founding principles frustrated Mr. Karunakaran and led him to reassess his political affiliations.

Driven by his unwavering commitment to serving the people and the nation, Mr. Saji V Karunakaran sought a political party that aligned with his values and had a track record of comprehensive development. After careful consideration, he found the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to be a systematic force in transforming the nation. He admired their efforts in preserving Indian traditions and religious values, which resonated with his upbringing in an aristocratic family. However, he recognized that political intentions can vary from place to place, and he moved to Delhi in the early 2000s to join the BJP at the national level. Gradually, he became involved in various national committees and actively participated in the party's developmental initiatives.

During his political journey, Mr. Karunakaran had the privilege of serving as the personal secretary to Former Union Minister Dr. S. Krishnakumar IAS. This association provided him with valuable experience and insights, which he later utilized for the development of HRDS INDIA and its projects. Driven by his deep commitment to the welfare of marginalized communities and tribal people, Mr. Karunakaran joined HRDS INDIA's corporate office in New Delhi when Dr. S. Krishnakumar served as the President of the organization. He became an integral part of HRDS INDIA's noble cause, which aims to uplift and empower the underprivileged sections of society. Leveraging his extensive network and contacts with ambassadors from various countries, particularly in Europe, Mr. Karunakaran played a crucial role in mobilizing funds for HRDS INDIA's initiatives.

Mr. Saji V Karunakaran's professional profile reflects his strong dedication to public service and his unwavering commitment to the welfare of marginalized communities. His political journey, marked by experiences in different political parties, has shaped his perspective and fuelled his desire to work towards comprehensive and inclusive development. As a valued member of HRDS INDIA, he brings his extensive expertise, network, and passion to contribute to the organization's noble objectives. Mr. Karunakaran's journey serves as an inspiration to many aspiring leaders, highlighting the importance of values, dedication, and a relentless pursuit of social welfare.
