Kumar S. Sharma, Ph.D., author and agent of The Age of Ananda, is a follower of Sri Aurobindo’s teachings on the conscious evolution of the human race towards the Life Divine. He studied physics and mathematics in India, with an avid interest in cosmology, Veda and Tantra. After graduating with a Ph.D. in technology management from MIT’s Sloan School, he was an innovation consultant and software entrepreneur for twenty-five years. All along, his life-long pursuit of the secrets of the rishis and siddhas continued in parallel, and this led him in due course to the Integral Yoga and other r/evolutionary works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother of Puducherry.
After a transformative experience during the Maha Kumbha Mela in Prayag, India, in January 2001, Kumar gradually withdrew from external interests to focus his attention on spiritual knowledge. Realizing early on that consciousness was the key to an integral synthesis of spirituality, evolution, and science, he followed this intuition diligently, with meditation, mantra, and other practices, to receive and transcribe the tidings of The Age of Ananda.
