Praveen Saanker – Upbringing
Praveen attributes his “attitude to seeking the divinity within” to his traditional upbringing and ancient family roots in Kerala. Praveen owes his devotional father for instilling the seeds of bhakti, or devotion in him as a child. He became a libertarian pragmaticist in his late teens and early twenties. Praveen recalls being deeply inspired by Western philosophers such as Spinoza, Hegel and Schopenhauer. But the limitations he experienced there, again brought him back to the path of Eastern wisdom. This was the basis for his intense study of the Upanishads. Praveen attributes his exposure to various Hindu philosophies to his amazing teachers. He uses his knowledge and resources to share the ancient Indian spiritual heritage using ultra-modern scientific methods.
Praveen has been an alumnus of the prestigious Tantra Vidya Peetha where he learnt various Agama shastras, Astrology and Vastu Vidya from great exponents of these subjects. Although Praveen has been an ardent student of different schools of Vedanta ( Advaita Vedanta and different Bhakti Schools of Vedanta), he later had an opportunity to dwell deep into Kashmiri Shaivism through a great Guru. Sri Praveen describes himself as Sampradaya Vihina ( one without any Sampradaya or traditional preconception) but at the same time one who respects every Sampradaya. According to Praveen the Akhandaakaara Vritti or unmodified Psychosis which intuits the subject-objectless pure consciousness is only the divine mother revealing her impersonal aspect.
