Manoj uses humor, stories and everyday experiences in his talks on Mythology, Tantra and Vedanta. Indian-born Manoj has given keynote lectures at Yoga festivals and teaches at Yoga Journal conferences, studios, ashrams and Universities. He is a scientist with a doctorate in Chemical Physics from Cornell University. The pursuit of money and fame consumed Manoj initially and at some point he realized that it is a treadmill going to nowhere except a burnout. It took a long time for Manoj to figure out that his calling in life is to assimilate and teach spiritual practice and philosophy through the symbolisms of Yogic art which he now imports from India. Manoj has also compiled a book on Hindu and Buddhist Symbology.
