With more than a decade of motivational speaking and corporate training experience with over 100 clients worldwide, Shubha Vilas is an inspirational orator, motivational speaker, storyteller and a lifestyle coach. Shubha Vilas was born in 1981 in the Southern part of the Indian peninsula. He holds a degree in Electronic Engineering. His multi-faceted interests led him to pursue the specialized field of patent law, post engineering.


After a brief stint in the corporate world, he chose to leave mainstream society to live a life of contemplation. Putting his energy into deep studies and interpretation of Vedic Scriptures, he went on to become a monk and a spiritual seeker. Accessible and friendly, Shubha Vilas has a unique ability to see things from a practical perspective applied with scriptural vision, making scriptures useful in everyone’s life, and creating life lessons that lead to self-development roadmaps.

Because he has lived the life of a monk, he applies the consciousness of a monk in everything he does. His high spiritual energy combined with an affable personality is what makes him such a sought after lifestyle coach and an awe inspiring speaker.


After 11 years of monk hood, he once again set out on a mission to fulfill the objective of his life; to spread joy and knowledge of living a life based on the purity of scriptures, making scriptures not just understandable but also practical, and inspiring everyone to live a purpose-driven meaningful life. Shubha Vilas considers the whole world his home determined to spread the wisdom of his learnings and light the lamp of knowledge in every direction. He works with Individuals, Corporates, Institutes, and Governments around the world through exclusive workshops, seminars, training modules, and learning retreats.

Addressing crucial needs of top level personnel of corporate houses through thought- provoking seminars on themes such as ‘Secrets of Lasting Relationships’, ‘Soul Curry to Stop Worry’ and ‘Work–Life Balance’, the USP of his seminars and workshops is application of scriptural wisdom in day-to-day working.

He recently spoke at Microsoft, Amazon and Samsung at their head quarters in Seattle, USA and also at Google at Silicon Valley, USA. He is a regular at the National Human Resource Department (Government of India) where his sessions are attended by top notch HR heads. He was recently invited to speak to the top Nuclear scientists of India at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). He is also a regular speaker at the Rotary Club.

Motivating Students – Transforming the Youth

Apart from the corporate sector, his target audience is the youth. He travels across the globe connecting with them across educational institutes; counseling and guiding students in the area of leadership, overcoming failures, managing stress amongst other relevant concerns. He recently was invited to speak at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston. His effortless speaking attracts hearts and minds of people across the world, cutting across all barriers and that’s what makes him a popular invitee in countries such as Australia, UK, USA, South Africa, Mauritius, Hong Kong and Far East.


As an author, writing books is an extension of his deep sense of responsibility towards society and the benefits it can derive from understanding ancient literatures in their true essence. In 2013, he took on a monumental task of writing a series of books on Ramayana; a series that brought the epic out of the closet and revealed the depth of learning hidden inside. He embarked on an ambitious project of a 6-volume series titled Ramayana – The Game of Life. It involved extensive research from original literatures like Valmiki Ramayana, Kamba Ramayana and Ramcharitamanas.

Roar with Courage (Book 1), Conquer Change (Book 2) and Adopt Patience (Book 3) from his book series ‘Ramayana - The Game of Life’ are national best sellers. Stand Strong (Book 4) has recently been released. These books distill lessons from Ramayana for contemporary life, providing deep insights on new-age subjects like how human relationships work or how they fail; how leaders can maximize their potential as leaders; and how the ancient epic holds immediate relevance to modern life.


His book titled ‘Open-Eyed Meditations’ is also a national best seller. It is a beautiful compilation of thoughts where each meditation takes you on a journey to the past to heal a problem in the present. He helps learn the art of meditation with eyes wide open as he observes the world around to lead his readers to enlightenment. He offers valuable nuggets of wisdom and action point resources to deal with every modern dilemma. His next book “The Chronicles of Hanuman” is an engaging and inspiring saga of the Monkey God. Replete with interesting folk tales, local lore about Hanuman temples across India and Hanuman prayers, this book is a reader’s delight.

At the Jaipur Literature Festival 2017, Shubha Vilas presented his unique perspectives as writer and publisher to nearly 1.2 million book lovers, on diverse topics ranging from copyright to creativity and happiness to Hanuman. Given his love for books, he heads Tulsi Books Publications, a publishing house interested in books that propagate spiritual thinking and reasoning.
