Whether I lived in New York City, or my charming childhood town in the Himalayas I was seeking. Seeking for an Ultimate Reality.
RAHULRahul is the founder, of TRS and one of its sublime servers! In some former lives he's led an Off-Broadway production in New York City as an actor, and was invited in 2004 to the erstwhile Harrow school for a gap programme by the then Mayor of London. He has also been privileged to work several jobs,including housekeeping at Stay, a boutique hotel in Times Square, the production of a German commercial, and as host at Tamarind, one of the worlds finest Indian restaurants.
He went to a prestigious British boarding school in the Himalayas, where in his final year, he was selected as the Captain of School, a testimony to his leadership qualities. It is here that he picked up an obsession with 'Resplendence',his favourite word. From then on, there has been an unknownst calling towards this phenomenon of 'dazzling measureless splendour'. The universe kept him amused with a few toys here and there. A splendid head-shave in Rishikesh by the Ganges, the glory of an early morning summit of a mountain peak, beautiful friendships with amazing people, Yoga, Spiritual Literature, travels and a short and meandering acting career. His search was finally culminated in the grace of meeting his Guru, Amma, after which he has been but pleasantly surprised, or rather been taken on 'a very wild ride'. Rahul loves to keep himself engaged with all the inner & outer work of spirituality, love and truth.Simply life. No fireworks here! He also likes to watch some good acting every now and then, enjoy his sadhana, people, and be in touch with all that is sacred within and without.
JACOB LANZAJacob is a freestyler at heart! He flows with any situation, is bouncey, happy and with tons of charm and innocence!
Before journeying off mostly in India, Jacob ran a popular cafe in the west village of NYC. He's also toured as a musician, met some really amazing people, is a fantastic yogi, quick witted and a most excellent artist(painter).
He came to India on a spiritual journey and fell in love with the different sub-cultures present, the buzz of the country and above all the call of the Divine there. Whether it was dancing to Krishna's tunes in the Braj, being on a Yatra with Amma, or visiting the holy ashram of Neem Karoli Baba in the Himalayas, Jacob was quick to be attuned with India's natural spiritual hotline. He awaits your coming. He awaits the light step of the Heart-Seekers~~
