Dr. Pillai is a Spiritual Scientist, Academic Scholar, Philanthropist, International Speaker and World Thought Leader who is deeply committed to helping people across the globe to realize their full human potential.

He is emerging as the most progressive and innovative source of self-advancement knowledge, tools and practices, living on our planet today. He has been featured in the Time Magazine for having millions of views of his free teaching videos on YouTube and was voted as the "YouTube Guru" in 2008. Tens of thousands of people have already experienced massive shifts in their lives as a result of practicing his Siddha Sound Technologies.

Dr. Pillai has been a speaker for the United Nations Conference of World Religions and the World Knowledge Forum, and has hosted forums on Religion and Science.

Dr. Pillai knows that the Wisdom of the Siddhas and Modern Science do not provide a complete understanding on their own. So his teachings are geared to bring both streams of knowledge together, to form a more comprehensive understanding of the nature of reality. He often quotes Einstein: "Science without Religion is lame, Religion without Science is blind."


His scholarly background includes a Masters Degrees in English Literature and Comparative Literature from Madurai University, and a PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Pittsburgh where he was both a teaching fellow in the Department of Religious Studies, and Coordinator of Indian Studies program for the Department of International Studies.

Dr. Pillai is an Enlightened Master from the South Indian Siddha tradition, an unbroken ancient lineage of spiritual scientists who have reached the pinnacle of human evolution.

What is a Siddha?

To understand who Dr Pillai is, it might be necessary to understand who or what is a Siddha? “Siddha” in the Tamil language means "one who is accomplished” and is a term used for referring to perfected masters who have achieved the ultimate physical as well as spiritual perfection or enlightenment. Some consider Siddhas to be the Guardians of Mankind.

The word “Siddha” is also used to refer to one who has attained a "siddhi" or paranormal ability. In its pure form, siddhi means "the attainment of flawless identity with reality or perfection of spirit."

A Siddha has an evolved consciousness that is able to transcend the limits of time and space and travel multi dimensionally. What is defined as a "miracle" in the Earth plane is the usual order of things in the higher dimensions. Miracles become possible every day in your life through the Mind Science Techniques of the siddhas. In many traditions this is seen as "On Earth as it is in Heaven".

Siddhas have become perfected beings by attaining physical immortality. This is usually accomplished only by persistent meditation practices. A Siddha may sometimes not have a body but resides as a soul in a different plane of consciousness. A Siddha can however, take a physical form and be present on the Earth plane either for an entire human lifespan, or temporarily to give divine information or guidance to humans.

A Siddha Guru can initiate disciples into Mind Science techniques with "Shaktipat" or transmission of spiritual energy. This type of spiritual initiation can result in instantaneous transformation. During an Initiation the Master/Guru is giving you his energy as a Seed. The Seed energy or power of the Master is given to you for an intended result.

Previously, initiation from a true Siddha Master was very hard to come by, with seekers often spending decades performing difficult austerities to get just one little gem! Needless to say, Siddha Techniques have been taught only to a few exclusive individuals. However, once we crossed the threshold of entering into the Golden Age, Dr. Pillai is bringing this once very secretive science to the general public.

Dr. Pillai brings forth from His Lineage of the Siddhas, Sound Technologies and Meditation Techniques that are effective, practical and easy to use. Hundreds of thousands of people are benefitting from his unique blend of Science and Spirituality incorporating cutting edge scientific findings with wisdom from esoteric traditions from across the world. Dr. Pillai is creating a Meditation Movement like no other and One Minute Guide to Prosperity and Enlightenment.

Dr. Wayne Dyer lovingly dedicated his breakthrough book "Manifest Your Destiny" to Dr. Pillai, a.k.a. Guruji, for giving to Dr. Dyer the now famous "Ah" Meditation.
