Sri K.C. Narayana - A Profile

Sri. K.C. Narayana (Sri Karumbur Chakravarthy Narayana) was born on 11th June 1939, at Kanchivaram in one of the most respectable orthodox Sri Vaishnava South Indian families. His mother Smt. Rukmani (aka Rajamma) was a very noble and pious lady belonging to family of Patrachariars*. His father Pujya. Dr. K.C. Varadachari was one of the most distinguished and eminent philosophers of India and an authority on Visistadvaita Philosophy and Aurobindonian thought. He is the foremost disciple and intimate of the great Master Sri Ramchandraji Maharaj of Shahjahanpur (U.P.)

He studied at Tirupati, a famous temple town in South India. He was good in studies and got himself graduated with the degrees of M.A. and M.A.(Hons) from the Sri Venkateswara University standing first in University. He learnt astrology as a part of traditional studies and was good at it and many except those close to him do not know his abilities in this field. A man blessed with high degree of intuitive perception many of his predictions came true in the lives of persons who consulted him. However he stopped consultations in astrology as true spiritual sadhana was getting affected by this activity.

Sri. K.C. Narayana is blessed with an incisive intellect, sharp memory, and crystal clear clarity of understanding, decisive thinking, and empathetic understanding of human problems and in him one finds a blend of analytical and synthetic approach to life depending on the context, situation and purpose. These qualities are natural in his personality and were discernable from his childhood days onwards, which he sharpened further through his spiritual sadhana, iron will and determination with a goal to achieve perfection in whatever he does. The qualities of openness, empathy, utmost honesty and sympathy caught the attention of the Great Master, Pujya Sri Ramchandraji Maharaj of Shahjahanpur, (U.P.), at an early age of about 17 years. He was fortunate to have been initiated into spiritual practice through the hand of Pujya Sri Ramchandraji Maharaj in December 1956.

History is replete with facts that it is only a few who made a decisive impact on the human psyche. The qualitative impact is a sine qua-non for furtherance of any noble cause. It is also true, it is a few alone who could discover early in their lives the purpose and meaning for life and accordingly set their priorities and worked out for their realisation. The task of attaining the state and status of “Real Man” is formidable. It requires enormous courage, patience, diligence and continuous endeavour. He worked for the Government of Andhra Pradesh in the department of Labour and after having held very many important and challenging positions reached the top most post in the Department. He was known to be both sympathetic and strict officer and never compromised on ethical principles of work and life. The seriousness with which one has to pursue such means which eventually enable a man lead a life of fulfilment and true happiness is quite evident in the personality of Sri. K.C. Narayana who was moulded and perfected by the Great Master to the goal as adumbrated in the Natural Path. He is one of the few who were guided to the shores of Infinity by the great Master.
