Born in the city of Ahmedabad, Ronak has always been always life positive, enthusiastic and very friendly. Very bright in his studies and highly gregarious since childhood, he later qualified as a Medical Doctor with specialization in Health Care Management.
Ronak sought out the journey of his life as a lecturer in a Medical College at Bhavnagar, Gujarat. He practiced the various effects of meditation on his students suffering from anxiety, depression and study related difficulties in his career as a Lecturer. The incredible results became a motivational factor in his desire to explore the inner realms of life with the help of Meditation.
During these years, his inclination towards spirituality grew and took a phenomenal surge. He was inspired by the teachings and meditations given by OSHO and he has not stopped since. He was also inspired by the teachings of Gandhiji, Buddha, J Krishnamurthy, George Gurdjieff & Lama Drupka Kunley.
He has always envisioned living a life free of pain and diseases. Being disenchanted with the limited scope of Medicine, Ronak felt the urge to contemplate on the meaning of life & seek wisdom. As his interest in this quest deepened, he had a chance to experience the amazing effects of Meditation & other transformative techniques.With an urge to look deeper, he visited many countries, came across many Masters, visited many Schools for Alternative Therapies & learnt different Arts & Meditations.
His thirst for the wisdom of the Unknown, the purpose of life on earth, life beyond death, the play of destiny,Love and God was deep. His life changed entirely after his meeting with Veeresh – The Founder of OSHO Humaniversity in Holland.
Veeresh showed him that all the answers to these sought out questions lie within ourselves in our own HEART,and to accept all the different parts of the self and always find the Master within. Veeresh trained him how to introduce Humaniversity AUM in India. It was like a full circle. Osho inspired Veeresh to work with people which later on developed as Humaniversity AUM & Veeresh trained Ronak to bring it back to India after 40 years. This resulted in the birth of Loving – The Way of The Heart, a unique Center for Transformation & Personal growth in 2011.
Ronak is on a mission to spread ‘Enlovement’ in the world; he quotes “I am on a mission to share my experience of Enlovement to people by way of Ancient Arts, Meditations, and Therapy. My years of learning with Spiritual Masters combined with my trainings are all but a way to help myself & people to be happy and have fulfilled & creative lives. Since my childhood, I have treasured Friendship. I am rich to have so many friends. Friendship is
