   Born in 1927 near Madras (Chennai) in the village of Vayalur, the boy who was to become Sri Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari became devoted at age 18 to the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, and experienced a spiritual awakening as he read the ancient book. He went on to graduate from Banaras Hindu University with a B.S. and followed a career as a chemical engineer and executive until his retirement in 1985.
   In 1964 he discovered Sri Maharaj RAM CHAN-DRA and became a student of sahaja (spontaneous or innate) YOGA as the teaching had been handed down from Sri Ram’s guru, Sri Ram Chandraji of Fategarh.
   Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari, referred to as Chariji, travels widely teaching a message of spiri-tual awakening and enlightenment through sahaja yoga. He conducts public seminars throughout the world on a regular schedule.
