Early life and personal transformation[edit]

Education / Software industry[edit]

Born as T.T.Rangarajan[7], he was fondly called as Ranga by his family members. At the age of 16, soon after his schooling he was pursuing his graduation in Maths during which he had to take up a job due to family circumstances. He relocated to Pune, India for his first job as software trainer and from then on he was called as Rajan by his coworkers. Further on he pursued his career as software consultant in Mumbai, Delhi and Dubai. In 1988, as a 23 year old, he returned from Dubai to Chennai and setup his own Software Consultancy firm called Greymatter[8].

Epiphany moment[edit]

He went on to become very successful in his software business until a situation arose in his friend's life who committed suicide. This affected him as he couldn't accept the fact that in spite of being highly qualified his friend took the extreme decision of committing suicide, unable to handle the emotions. This situation raised question within him on the significance of education system if it does not teach a man how to lead life. This is when as he was glanced through the books in a bookstore in Chennai, he came across this Chinese proverb:

"Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime[9]"

Alma Mater[edit]

He chose to be part of the solution by handing over his business to his successor and started Alma Mater[2] on 14 February 1995 to teach life skills. The main focus was to integrate standard of life with quality of life through training programs. Initially Alma Mater started with developing communication skills and over a period of time several attributes for the overall development of personality was incorporated which include leadership, personality development, relationship handling, health and spirituality. The tagline of Alma Mater was 'an evolving consciousness...'. Over a period of time, he realised that for every problem the solution lies in the spiritual evolution of human-being. This was realised during the annual spiritual retreats that he used to organize for eight days called Top Gear. This had created a significant transformation on the well-being of the followers of Alma Mater they were called as Almanites.

Birth of infinitheism and Mahātria Rā[edit]

Realizing the great hunger for human endeavor on material, emotional and spiritual realm, he decided to expand his reach worldwide and changed the complete operating model by diving the path called infinitheism on 11-11-2011 at 11.11 am IST in Chennai, India. This was created in completely new ways and he consciously removed the traces of Alma Mater as he believed a new consciousness is required. Accordingly, he changed his name from Rajan to Rā. While Ra is the name of his human presence, the cosmic that is expressing through him is undefinable. This is experienced through his discourses and the annual retreats called HDB[10] (Higher... Deeper... Beyond...) which is way beyond human abilities. Therefore, the cosmic presence that is expressing through him is referred as Mahātria. Put together he is referred as Mahātria Rā[11].

infinitheism was divined as a path by Mahātria and the follower of the path is called an infinitheist. While this is a path of holistic abundance and yet it does not claim as another religion or a cult. The vision of infinitheism is to inspire breakthroughs...
