About Me (Krishna Reddy):

My interests in occult started in high school over fear of death. Soon I pursued Astrology, Palmistry by reading various books. I was introduced to Kuṇḍalini meditation during my undergrad and pursued it actively for a few years before getting sucked into the rigors of mundane life. Many years later faced with financial hardship, I undertook mantra japa as a means of alleviating my problems. Facing no luck, I studied Mantra Mahodadhi and took up the sādhana of Śrī Ucchiṣṭa Gaṇapati. After a near drowning incident and a miraculous save by the grace of Śrī Ucchiṣṭa Gaṇapati, I searched more intensely to find a guru and was finally accepted by Shri Bharat Eshwar Jha of Vamtantra.com, who introduced me into Śrī Mātaṅgī and Śrī Bagalāmukhī sādhanas. A year later I wrote to Shri Sivapremananda ji of srividyasadhana.com and he initiated me into the seven step Śrīvidya sādhana. I was later guided further to the Śrī Vāñcākalpalatā Gaṇapati sādhana and upon my request, to the 37 lettered Śrī Ucchiṣṭa Gaṇapati mantra. After a few months of these sādhanas, I discovered Manblunder.com and the writings of Shri Ravi ji on various topics totally blew me away and engrossed me completely for the months to come. Though hesitant initially, I finally requested Shri Ravi ji for an initiation after explaining my spiritual practices till date and was graced with an initiation into Śrī Mahāṣoḍaśī and Kuṇḍalini meditation. I requested for an initiation into the Krama paddhati of Śrīvidya from Shri Krishna ji of Medhayoga. Over the next few years, I received initiations into Śrī Mahāgaṇapati, Bālā, Pañcadaśī, Saubhāgya Pañcadaśī, Mahāvārāhī, Śyāmalā, Pratyaṅgirā and finally Mahāṣoḍaśī again. I also got initiated into Kriya Yoga by Shri Mukherjee of the Original Kriya Yoga foundation.

An urge to give back to Shri Ravi ji and Manblunder in general, became extremely strong with the Śrī Pratyaṅgirā sādhana. As a token of my deep appreciation and reverence to Shri Ravi ji and Śrī Ucchiṣṭa Gaṇapati, I undertook the transliteration of Śrī Ucchiṣṭa Gaṇapati Sahasranāmam and also translated Śrī Ucchiṣṭa Gaṇapati kavacam. Both were accepted by Shri Ravi ji and he in turn requested me and Santosh to manage the Manblunder site and its content. Thus began my journey to write for Manblunder as a dakṣiṇa to the greatest spiritual master that I have ever encountered till date. Strangely, I do not feel that the authorship of any articles bearing my name have anything to do with me. These are articles that come about purely by the grace of the Divine Mother and the blessings of Shri Ravi ji whose name I invoke before beginning any of them, as well as all the gurus who have guided me in the past and continue to guide me today and in the future.

I continue to pursue my studies in tantra through books as well as receiving guidance from Gurus such as Shri Ramesh Kutticad ji, Shri Krishna ji and from articles and videos of the Vimarsha Foundation. I do plan to pursue further into Kashmir Śaivism and regard Dr. Mark Dyckowski as one of the foremost authorities in this tradition today. It is my desire to provide as much content as possible to raise the awareness of the benefits of Tantra through Manblunder and help anyone having interest in pursuing the same.
