Jay Lakhani was born in Mombasa, Kenya. He spent his childhood in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. After completing Schooling at Wembley Grammar School, he went to Imperial College London to study Physics. He graduated in 1969 and obtained his postgraduate degree in Quantum Mechanics in 1970. Because of his background in Theoretical Physics he often gives talks on Science and Spirituality at universities to explore the links between the esoteric teachings of religions and the discoveries at the cutting edge of modern sciences, thereby reconciling the gap between religious and secular world-views. Lakhani has been inspired by the Bibliography of Swami Vivekanand, which has had great deal of influence over his life. As he thinks Religion is evolving – before people were looking for god in heaven, they are now told to see and serve god in human beings. The things that he has learned are so interesting to him and he wants to share it with everybody.
