Lenish John was born in Kerala, a spiritual and culture rich part of Southern India in 1982 and transformed himself into a Yoga Guru and holistic healer over the last two decades.

Raised in a strong family lineage of spiritual and ancient healing, he continued his spiritual journey and in high school came across Sanskrit, one of the ancient languages still alive today. Specialising in Sanskrit provided him with invaluable esoteric knowledge about nature and life as Vedic manuscripts of ancient times were documented in Sanskrit.

Lenish was spiritual in nature and was obsessed about channelling his spiritual energy through art at the age of 19. This self-discovery inspired him to study a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. While studying fine arts Lenish happened to meet his Yoga Guru (teacher) Sri Jos Jacob, an internationally awarded Yoga Guru from a lineage dating back to Vedic India. This encounter helped him gain more insight into spirituality and set him on a new journey.

Throughout his intensive Yoga training, he had to strictly follow many spiritual ethics and perform traditional rituals, such as Mantras (sound frequency of healing), Art of Yantra (mystical diagram of geometrical elements), and Tantric Yoga. Travelling through nature and sacred places to understand the orientation of energy and its magnetic field was also part of his training. He also assisted his Guru with the elderly and sick patients. As he followed a traditional one-on-one Yoga training (teacher-disciple) method he was also exposed to many other esoteric Yoga techniques that have nearly been lost over the years. After 9 years of regular practice under the guidance of his Guru, he was chosen to be the next Guru out of many other dedicated disciples, to continue this ancient method of yoga.

In 2009, encouraged by his Guru, Lenish travelled to Australia to spread this ancient healing knowledge to the western world. The Australian Government recognised his exceptional experience in Yoga healing and happily welcomed him with a ‘ Distinguished Talent Visa’ to share his knowledge and wisdom with the Australian community. As a holistic healer and yoga Guru, Lenish believes being in Australia is a continuation of his spiritual journey so that he may combine Indian Vedic teachings with the Australian indigenous rituals. He has already achieved a high success rate of healing many health conditions in both Australia and India.

He has practiced the correspondence with souls and energies from nature under the guidance of the famous Guru Sri Krishna Dattha Namboothiripad, Kerala. Sri Jos Jacob’s interest in the connection between nature and it’s construction principles led him to study “Vastu shastra”– traditional Indian system of architecture, at Thakshasila Yoga Centre, Thanjore, Tamilnadu, the place of incredible ancient temples of India. Guru Sri Anantha Dattha Battathiripad shared his knowledge of Vedic science and Tantric practice to him at Neha Institute of Vedic Science, Vijayavada, Andhrapradesh.

After all his studies he combined all these vedic knowledge to implement a powerful healing system which is best suited to the modern lifestyle, named “Atharvanic Kriya”. This healing system involves mainly two different approaches, which are ‘Atharvanic healing tradition’ and ‘Kriya Yoga’. The Atharvanic Tradition was practiced thousands of years ago by the Aryans who lived in Ancient Indo-Gangetic plains of India. and Kriya Yoga is an ancient Yoga system. A perfect blend of these two practices could heal several types of diseases. This method of treatment has been highly successful with curing hundreds of cases without any internal medicine where the advanced Western Medical system could not help. Sri Jos Jacob has been presented with a lot of laurel and awards for his Atharvanic Kriya healing system from both national and international levels.

From a very young age Sri Jos Jacob had a strong connection with society due to his empathy towards the people struggling with life. As he matured, the desire to help people grew strongly in his heart which led him to establish a holistic healing centre named Manjeeram Holistic Centre.However his generosity did not just stop there. As his patients became cured and overwhelmed they also wanted to be a part of his mission of helping others in need, hence Manjeeram Foundation was formed.
