A Brief Biography
I was born in London, England of Sri Lankan parents. My father is Hindu, my mother Buddhist, but I somehow grew up without consciously absorbing much from either of these traditions. During my late teens, I was converted to protestant evangelical Christianity, and remained in this tradition for about five years until its inherent contradictions, and lack of any substantial answers became rather too much to bear. However, it would be a number of years before I would “come home” to embrace the spiritual concepts of my heritage.
In late 1980, I commenced university studies, and worked for six years for a BSc. in Physics, followed by a PhD in Nuclear Physics. My PhD work took me to CERN in Switzerland to work on the huge sub-atomic particle accelerators – anti-matter, gamma rays, all that fascinating stuff.
Ironically, it was around this time that my spiritual interests moved more towards the metaphysical. I became very interested in the I Ching, the Tarot and other such esoteric and “forbidden” matters. Modern Quantum Physics IS incredibly esoteric and metaphysical in many of its conclusions. Parallels between the latest findings in Physics and those of Ancient Wisdom became increasingly apparent to me, as remain so to this day.
My next adventure was in the speedy, unpredictable world of Investment Banking. I had the rare “fortune” of joining this industry on October 19th 1987, also known as Black Monday. The day of the Stock Market Crash! Well, I had always told my friends that if I ever finally made it, they would know because the whole damn thing would come crashing down!
Although my fortunes in this career seemed to fluctuate more rapidly than the most volatile market financial, I hung in there for over ten years and became a well regarded financial market forecaster/strategist. I also got to work for several major Wall Street firms, as well as one multi-billion dollar investment fund.
Over this period, I used a lot of esoteric work in predicting the movements of financial markets to a high level of accuracy. Financial markets actually conform to an incredible extent to the laws of Sacred/Ancient Geometry and also with Astrology.
In 1998, I took leave of the financial industry, apparently for good, and began to pursue matters of deeper interest to me; issues of spiritual and personal growth in the widest possible sense.
