Nithya Shanti

International Speaker & Spiritual Teacher

Nithya Shanti is an internationally renowned spiritual teacher, seminar leader, and facilitator, committed to sharing practical wisdom and teachings for happiness.

He completed an MBA from XLRI, Jamshedpur and then worked in the corporate sector. Despite having a promising corporate career, Nithya Shanti found that his true calling would come buy pursuing his spiritual quest further. In 2002, he ordained as a Buddhist Monk.

After six years of living in forest meditation monasteries in Thailand, Sri Lanka and also various parts of India and the US, he was guided to live, learn and serve in broader ways than the traditional role of a monk permitted. With the blessings of his teachers he stepped out of the robes in early 2008 and now shares inspiring teachings in attaining happiness through ‘Joyshops’, youth programs, corporate trainings and meditation retreats around the world. He keeps his audience engaged through stories and encourages meditation and introspection in an atmosphere of trust.

Through his diverse offerings and interventions, Nithya Shanti helps participants get in touch with themselves, leading the way to personal development and spiritual awakening. He has been invited to share his insights around the world by leading universities, corporate and non-governmental organizations, he coaches CEOs, senior government officials and school teachers, and taught these principles at international conferences, forums such as TEDx and also in prisons.
