Also, he has been practicing various self-enhancing scientific mindfulness & other Vedic practices under the direct supervision of a Himalayan master for around eleven years from now. He noticed how people across the corporate realm are facing burnouts due to increasing stress, responsibilities, pressure, which is also hampering their other walks of lives.
Similarly is the case with students, who are constantly living under judgments & pressure. Thus he, along with Geetanjali who holds deep interest & strategic formulations in diet & nutrition thought of coming up with Eastern Mindfulness – A platform offering tools for optimizing performances.
