Born and raised in South India, Ujwala moved to the United States in 1981. She has a Master’s degree in science with a speciality in Cell Biology.
As she came from India and organically learned the Hindu traditions and stories of Gods and Goddesses, the word spirituality did not mean anything to her until she found Dr. Pillai.
Dr. Pillai came miraculously into her life in late 2009; this was a perfect time for her to devote to his teachings.
She struggled all her life to find her purpose regarding why she is here and what she is supposed to do in her life. She did much volunteer work to find her passion, but yet she still felt that she had so many unused abilities, and she was looking very hard to find ways to use these abilities to make her own unique contribution to the world.
Through Dr. Pillai’s teachings, she found her passion which brought transformation within herself. She is fulfilled and lives a much happier life now than she ever have.
In 2017, Ujwala launched myguru-and-me.com, a blog to share her miracle stories of Dr. Pillai’s teachings. This meaningful endeavor also provides a great opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills. She absolutely feels there cannot be anything that is more fulfilling than working towards human evolution and development of higher consciousness.
Besides blogging, her hobbies include nature walks, yoga, traveling, cooking and attending music concerts.
Ujwala is happily married with four adult children.
In this lifetime, Meena Mulloy met Dr. Pillai in April 2000. The first encounter was a complete life changing event, she saw his Light Body and from then on changed the priorities in her life to learning everything possible from him. At that time, she was Vice-President in a Fortune 500 Investment Bank and well known on Wall Street for her success in turning around the corporate communication and presentation division. In 2001, Dr. Pillai gave his first seminar in London and that was the beginning of extensive travel and managing events on-site for Meena. In 2004 she moved to India and after working for a Wall Street business and completing her business karma, she was given the honor and responsibility of managing AstroVed Advisory Services along with a talented team to bring more in-depth, personalized spiritual work and help.
Meena has served, worked, traveled and learned as much as possible from this great master. There is no end to his depth and height and if anything, she feels more like a beginner now than when she first met Dr. Pillai. She loves to encourage others along the way and when she meets you one-on-one she is often shown your gifts and higher purpose.
