You wanted to know more about me… in the context of the world, my name is Lucky Balaraman (where ‘Lucky" is short for ‘Lakshman"); I am a graduate engineer from the University of Michigan, a businessman and a happiness coach. I was born in the fifties, am married, have two grown sons and currently live at Chennai, India .

I have acquired knowledge of myself and the meaning of the universe by spending many hours with a great living teacher , Swami Suddhananda.

About My Teacher, Swami Suddhananda

swami-suddhananda174wSwamiji is based at Tiruvannamalai, one of India’s most important spiritual cities, where he has established a beautiful, modern ashram. Tiruvannamalai is in the South of India and is about 160 km from Chennai by road.

Swamiji has also set up ashrams and orphanages in the Indian states of Orissa (where he runs a polytechnic as well) and Andhra Pradesh. In addition he has an associated ashram in Bavaria, Germany.

Swamiji’s website is at http://www.self-knowledge.in.

I first met Swamiji in 1979. Over the decades, a deep personal friendship has grown alongside and eclipsed our original teacher–student relationship. He has painstakingly explained the nuances of self-knowledge to me and encouraged me to pursue it single-pointedly, which, to a great degree, I have. In the process I have observed with great satisfaction and relief the transformation of my mind from the likes of a bombed-out, rubble-strewn city into a spotless, gleaming, celestial kingdom.

I am in constant touch with Swamiji and my gratitude to him is boundless.

What I Can Pass On to You

I can tell you how to find the unshakable peace within you without the need for organized religion (inner peace is not dependent on any religion; it is as non-religious as your arm or leg). This is my natural preference because I have undergone a rigorous engineering and scientific education.

To start learning, a good place would be my free 4-part email course. If you do not prefer such deep involvement at this time, follow me on Twitter or friend me on Facebook.

If I can help you gain deeper insight into life, nothing would make me happier!

To your great life,
