Brief Life History of Vethathiri Maharishi...









G.V.Vethathiri was born in 1911 in a simple weaver’s family in a village,30 km south to Madras. It is a Orthodox Hindu family.

He had no formal education because of the poor condition of his family.

He never gave up his self-effort and self-learning as later he became a Qualified Physician in Siddha,Ayurveda and Homeopathy medicine systems by his own interest and effort with the help of Dr.Krishna rao, his first guru.

There are always few questions in his mind for which he was striving to find answers consistently. Specifically, those questions are: 1. What is God? 2. What is Life? 3. Why is there Poverty among people?

Around his age 30, He worked in a Postal Audit Office in Madras on a meager salary.

Around his age 40, He owned a Textile Concern employing around 2000 workers.

He learnt Mediation from Dr.Krishnarao at the age around 20.

He learnt Meditation Techniques properly from a Spiritual Master namely Paranjothi Mahan at his age 34..

Several years of intense and solitary meditation and introspection of mind brought him full enlightment at the age of 35. 


In the successive years, he clearly understood the Secrets of Mind and Secrets of Universe and he obtained a holistic view about the philosophy of life -one by one.


But at the age of 50, due to unforeseen circumstances beyond his control, he was compelled to close his Textile Concern. After a brief period of attendant difficulties, he decided, it was a sign to change his life style entirely and took up the task of teaching and writing to help others of sincere spiritual education sharing his experiences and divine revelations of truth.

In 1958, he founded The World Community Service Centre in Madras for spreading his teachings. He designed a Unique System of Yoga called Manavalakkalai Yoga for which a small note will be given later in the following pages.

Over the past 50 years, over thousands of branches of World Community Service Centre have been formed in India and Abroad.

They are popularly known as Temple of Consciousness.                                           
(Tamil: Arivu Thiru Kovil).

He was the author of a monthly magazine namely ‘Anboli’ in Tamil and English Version for bringing his concepts to the public.


In 1972, he gave a lecture about the Simplified Kundalini Yoga Meditation for mental peace in the United Nations Organization.

Several years back, he was recommended by a American scientist for the Nobel Prize for his ‘Theory of Unified Force’ (Gravity) .



Nearly 55 years ,he has been contributing for the World Peace through the teachings and Writings of his Spiritual education and Philosophy.. He has given elaborate explanations for achieving world peace in a step by step manner in his book known as ‘World Peace’ and a book ‘ Blue print for World Peace’.
