I was born in Maribor in Slovenia in 1972. Later we moved to the countryside, where I enjoyed in the exuberance of nature. The humming of insects, the whispering of the wind and the warbling of birds were nature’s wonderful symphony that still resonates in my ears.
When I was growing up, I had a feeling that something was missing in my life. I was growing restless. Deep within me I felt unfulfilled. The more I was aware of myself, the more questions arose, such as, who am I, why am I here in this world. I was searching for answers in spiritual books. I was interested in philosophy and various spiritual traditions. I studied western and Indian philosophy and religions at the University of Ljubljana. During my studies and later I researched the Greek mystical tradition, especially Pythagoras and Plato, Indian mystics, ancient rishis in Upanishads, Sufis – eastern and western mystical traditions. I was especially attracted to the great sages who had come to profound realisations of Man, and realised the true Self or consciousness within, and the true nature of all things.
Travels to the countries (Asia and Africa, especially India, Persia and Turkey) which have rich spiritual heritage have deepened my view on Man and the world. I was overwhelmed with curiosity to unravel the greatest riddle of life – myself. However, the knowledge I received during my studies and from books could not satisfy me. It was impossible to fulfil the gaping emptiness inside me, the yearning for joy, freedom and love. I longed to attain true knowledge. I realised that the way which leads towards it was meditation. The burning desire to meet someone who possesses true knowledge sprang up inside me and refused to yield. When in India I came into contact with an ancient method, which was taught by the great sages, like Pythagoras in the West, Jalaluddin Rumi in the Middle East, Kabir in the Far East, and many others, and I started getting answers to my questions. The understanding of myself and the world has become deeper and deeper.
In 2015, the book Blooming of Consciousness: Conversations on the Awakening of Man was published, which describes the awakening of the human consciousness and how to step onto the path of inner transformation. It is written in dialogue. In 2018, the second book The Secret Knowledge of Rumi and Kabir was published, which presents the two greatest sages of the East, Jalaluddin Rumi and Kabir Das, through stories and poems and their explanations. Published in 2020, the book Timeless Teachings of the Upanishads contains ten principal Upanishads with commentaries by Adi Shankaracharya.
I give lectures on the following topics: What is consciousness? What is the mind? How does it work and how can it be overcome? And various others: On ethical life, law of action and reaction, on ancient spiritual discipline – meditation, on the great sages of the East – Indian and Sufi mystics, stories from Mahabharata and their meaning, stories from rich eastern mystical traditions, etc.
