About Me

Hi, my name is Ajay Kalra. I am a regular guy, with no fancy qualifications or achievements. Since childhood, I had a quest to uncover the mystery of life. “Who am I? Why am I here? What is the purpose of life?” were questions that intrigued me in my growing years. These questions remained unaddressed, as they were not a part of my school curriculum or of any interest to my caregivers.

After completing Chartered Accountancy, I actively started seeking answers to these questions through spirituality. I did various programs, visited different ashrams, met many Gurus, read a lot of books in the hope of attaining enlightenment. I was obsessed with finding the Truth.

In my search for Truth, I crossed important milestones of giving up the search, being true to my feelings, discerning between feelings and impulses, self-discipline and surrender. I have shared my story in the first chapter of my book Be PRESENT Be Happy, which can be read here.

My only practice now is to keep my attention in the Now. I have realized, Now is where life happens. And when I am in the Now I become one with Life.

In common parlance, this practice is called Mindfulness.

This is what I teach through my classes, workshops, retreats, books, articles, and videos. Over time a Mindful Living community has developed, mainly comprising of people attending my classes. I hold the space for this group, whose intent is to support and inspire each other towards conscious living.

I make no claims to perfection. Or imperfection. I live simply, taking note of what each moment brings. Without the intent of controlling, creating, or avoiding any experience. I have noticed this approach brings contentment and allows life to unfold naturally. I trust the intelligence of the Universe to nudge all human beings towards greater consciousness.

My favorite quote is It Is What It Is
