Biography of Ojas Oneness
DATE OF BIRTH
Ojas was born on November 20th, 1989 in Andhra Pradesh, India. His original name was Srikanth Mangaraju. However, after his awakening, “Ojas Oneness” has been the name he is known by. In 2015 this name was officially registered and is now used in all of his official documents. This was accomplished through the grace of powerful manifestation. This was the first step for Ojas to come out of all cultural and social boundaries, to be connected with an inner calling of oneness consciousness.
From his childhood, Dance has played a very important role in Ojas’ life. It has always been something which has given him the utmost joy. Being naturally passionate about it, Ojas used to participate and perform in many dance shows and school programs and at various other gatherings, celebration events, and so on.
2005 - 2008
After 15 years of schooling, in the year 2005, Ojas started practising Anapanasati Meditation by way of initiation through the Pyramid Spiritual Societies Movement (PSSM). The regular and sincere practice of meditation moulded him to become filled with self-balance, awareness, and humility. Until the age of 21, Ojas was deeply involved in the movement of spreading meditation, spirituality, and vegetarianism through participating in various spiritual and cultural programs and activities. This helped him to learn, share and expand his consciousness and wisdom deeply.
The year 2008 was very crucial in Ojas’ life. Along with spiritual knowledge and wisdom, his passion and love towards dance and acting also grew more and more. It awakened more consciousness and deep spiritual knowledge within him. With the love and passion, he had for dance, he started the Anando Brahma Music and Dance School with the help of PSSM Masters. While training youth, Ojas explored various unique elements in dance and started to realize the deep significance and essence of all arts even more. He started understanding that arts were more than just a tool of entertainment. He could sense and feel that there is a divine energy that is present within each and every art form that can lead every human toward transformation and self-realization. As such, by observing and knowing this universal truth about the arts, Ojas understood that one’s own self-observation is the ultimate master and teacher or guru. He realized that he can share, learn and expand this wisdom about the arts by imparting what he calls “Transforming Art” to people all over the world. The journey along his worldly and spiritual path deepened.
AN UNEXPECTED MOMENT
One day on Ojas’ spiritual journey of self-exploration, he and his brother Mukesh, as well as his friend Praveena, were playfully experimenting with a past-life regression technique. Unexpectedly, Mukesh began to experience a soul being channeled through him. In this channeling process, the soul shared many amazing things with Ojas about his own further spiritual endeavors. The soul told Ojas, “You are here to save and there is a great purpose for you on this Earth. You have to unite many people and souls on this earth.” After saying this to Ojas, the soul asked him to promise he would do so. Ojas promised, and said, “I will definitely do as you say. However, I do not know how to do this and move ahead in this spiritual purpose.” In return, the soul said, “don’t worry, just start, and the important things will happen naturally.”
2009 - 2013
After this experience, Ojas continued the journey of his spiritual realization and purpose more sincerely. He traveled all over India from the south to the northern part of the country, including places like Chennai, Bangalore, Surat, Mumbai, Delhi, and the Himalayan mountains (in both India and Nepal). In 2011, while in Mumbai, he had several profound experiences which helped him understand his life purpose better.
2013 - Himalayas experimental Journey
In 2013, Ojas traveled to the Himalayas from Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh with just 500 rupees (about $8 USD). It was an experimental trip to know himself and to explore Life more deeply. Ojas was determined to understand the ways of Nature and the Universe and how they worked on all levels. He traveled for about 300 km by foot in the Himalayas and started living without the requirement of money. After a few days, he experienced the depths of hunger and faced a near-death experience.
During that time, he met Prem, a Nepali, who invited Ojas to his home. His family honored and took care of him as a friend. Ojas shared his knowledge and wisdom with them which made them feel very connected. Their association built deep gratitude and friendship between Ojas and Prem. With this experience, Ojas realized that pure giving and sharing is the bridge between people’s hearts. He understood and experienced practically that love and wisdom are really honored beyond the limitations of country boundaries, people’s riches, pride, religion, or gender. With love as our source, one can undoubtedly live beyond the requirements of money very happily.
This Himalayan experience awakened and transformed Ojas into a whole new person. He understood that one’s life purpose begins with an intuition or a call, and we can fulfill our purpose with love and wisdom, in spite of hard struggles and challenges.
On his way back home, Ojas stayed in Delhi for some time. While he was there, one day he heard his inner voice asking him a question, very strongly: “Ojas, when love and humanity are more powerful than money, then why are you charging money for teaching people how to dance?” He was awestruck by this question. As he pondered this question more deeply, he realized that dance or any other art is not any one person’s own possession. Art is Nature’s pure gift and is being given freely to all humanity so that we might know, express and share our unlimited potential in as many creative ways as possible. This realization made him understand the deepest essence and true significance of all the arts in the world. He understood that Art is not a material thing for the main purpose of business. It is a way of expressing our gratitude towards Creation. Art is a gift to be shared with others and is beyond the value of money.
Since then, Ojas has become sincere about sharing his gifted art of Dance all over the World beyond the exchange of money. He has understood that materialistic requirements should not lead or drive our purpose and work. However, the love we share and the services we offer to mankind will generate and regenerate all the requirements needed in life.
Ojas has experienced this first-hand, and he invites you to experience this as well.
His Mother's Blessings
One more important aspect of Ojas’ spiritual journey and self-transformation was his mother’s blessing. After coming back home from his Himalayan trip, Ojas shared his experiences and the wisdom he gained during his Himalayan trip with his family. His transformation was clearly seen by all. He expressed his decision with his family and friends to share his gift of art and dance all over the world without any exchange for money. He also shared his determined sincerity to bring oneness all over the world by spreading the awareness and importance of pure giving and sharing without any expectations. This can lead everyone in the world towards Oneness.
Seeing his unwavering determination and unconditional love towards everyone, his mother blessed him saying: “Ojas, when so many great enlightened spiritual masters are able to do so much good for the world by dedicating their lives to the service and peace of humanity at middle age, I can sense how much more good you can do for everyone in the world by dedicating and surrendering yourself to such a huge mission of Oneness on earth, even at a younger age. The world definitely needs such enlightened young people like you. I set you completely free, my son, and I wholeheartedly wish you complete success in your oneness mission.” Saying this set Ojas free to go ahead as per his free will to fulfill his mission of bringing Oneness among all humankind.
From there on, Ojas has been able to move ahead freely and easily towards working and manifesting his vision and life’s purpose of spreading Oneness. This is his complete life’s work now. The Diviners Organisation is the first and main part of his Oneness mission. Here, through the Arts, he wishes to spread the awareness of “pure giving and sharing,” all over the world. Now he is helping people know the importance and significance of pure friendship and unconditional love, which the world highly needs now. This is a key way to realize one’s own divinity and to establish oneness, peace, and harmony on the Earth.

Ojas Oneness founded Diviners Org in 2014 to explore and research the transformational aspects of art & mediation. In 2015 he visited Vietnam and went to France in 2016, and then came back to Vietnam to start the Diviners organization officially in the year 2017. Since then, the Diviners organization activities have become connected to HCMC in several cities in Vietnam. Thousands of people have now benefited from the Transforming Art Method from Diviners and are on the way to help millions and millions of people around the world.

For example, in several corporate companies, CEO’s have practiced the Transforming Art Technique with Ojas, and they began to realize how powerful TA is with their employees. They saw a transformation which led to greater harmony in their work environment. The divine journey of this Method and the Oneness mission is getting to be explored all over the world.
