About us page

Mukesh Gupta is an international speaker and a facilitator for transformational dialogues, retreats and workshops. He has been on this meditative and transformative journey for more than two decades. He is deeply inspired by the teachings of J. Krishnamurti and other teachers/philosophers who are deeply concerned with ending psychological separation, duality, conflict and suffering within human consciousness through the direct perception of the existential reality not just from the intellect but from the heart and the whole being. During his long experience of working with students, teachers and seekers from all walks of life Mukesh developed his unique "Meditative & Transformative Self-Inquiry" approach which is primarily based on having an insight in the living moment from the stillness and compassion of the heart and mind.

Mukesh was also associated with the Krishnamurti Retreat Centre in Varanasi, India for two decades where he focused on researching and translating the works of J. Krishnamurti as well as conducting retreats and workshops. He is a traveler at heart and regularly facilitates meditative self-inquiry based retreats around the globe. He has conducted over two hundred retreats and seminars during the past one decade. He holds a Master's Degree in Indian and Western Philosophy. He does not consider himself as any spiritual authority but only a fellow-traveler and a tiny explorer of truth or call it the unknown in this vast unfathomable universe... He believes that a deep non-authoritarian meditative process of self-inquiry, based on love, listening and looking from a silent state of being and presence, is essential to bring inner transformation and establish peace, harmony and compassion in one’s daily existence and society.

Mukesh is usually traveling throughout the year but he returns to the ancient city of Varanasi in North of India for brief periods and loves to sit quietly along the beloved Ganga river.

"Any action which is not based on love and compassion is not only non-essential but also destructive..."                                                                                                    - Mukesh
