He has immense and myriad life experiences, eliciting wisdom from it, and continues to lead through stability. Since the age of 10, five teachers of different spiritual domains have guided him.
‘Om lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu’ is the principle he upholds and strives to make the world a better place to live, with his meticulous efforts and teachings. Atma ji has pledged to his spiritual life to bring a radical change in the lives of the deprived and has been ushering HRDS INDIA, a long-standing Non-profit Organization in accomplishing the dream of releasing the Tribal Community from the clutches of indigence and destitution.
Born on March 17, 1955, Guru Atma Nambi, a mystic from Tamil Nadu, is a source of enlightenment for the aspirants of true knowledge. At a very young age, Atma Nambi or Guruji as widely known was introduced to his very first spiritual teacher, Nataraja Gurukkal, who was a priest at Shiva temple. “My spiritual journey began in my childhood when my mother sent me to my first teacher, Nataraja Gurukkal. He initiated me into Bhakti Yoga: rituals, chanting of mantras and performing yajnas,” said Atma Ji. Over the years, Guruji completed his higher studies and also kept his learning in spirituality. On October 7, 1994, Guruji had an indelible experience of enlightenment.
With the inner drive of diving deep into the self and spirituality, five different masters and teachers passed through his life and left various experiences and practices. Following his self-realization, after 2 years of silence, he decided to clear the paths for seekers and to lead them 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, which transformed me completely,” said Guruji. Throughout his journey, he focused on providing help to everyone around him. He wanted to propagate inner peace and happiness over one’s insecurities to a composed niche of mankind.
Guru Atma Nambi said, “he believes that the purpose of my life is to be a part of creating a conscious humanity and a healthy world for mankind to thrive.” ” According to Guruji, enlightenment happens spontaneously; its attainment is neither planned nor scheduled.” 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 one’s self towards the light 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.
His healing is shared through energy wisdom practices and effective meditation techniques. He guides his followers dynamically to his or her natural state of consciousness to become master of his/her own self and thereby attain inner peace. “People who came to me seeking guidance expressed that they felt intense peace and calm in my presence, said Guru Ji with a smile. When asked about kundalini initiation, Guruji explains that it is a very powerful initiation and only possible on well-qualified people that will be handpicked by the master. He believes that a human, need not be taught what he or she should desire or be ambitious about. But to achieve them he or she requires a certain amount of energy which can be attained with yoga and spiritual discipline.
