Our Founder – Varmaguru Dr. R. Pasukkanna

Born in the effervescent Tamil city of Madurai, our Varmaguru grew up in the lap of natural ambiance in the Attakatti forest reservation region near Pollachi. It is this period of childhood that instigated the love for natural and natural science in him.

Despite studying computer science and becoming a computer science based professional in his youth, Dr. Pasukkanna was soon attracted back to the traditional world of Varmakkalai, which, according to him was due to the blessings and wishes of our Godly ancestors.

After meeting, learning and practicing under a number of gurus for many years, Dr. Pasukkanna has imbibed the true essence of Varmakkalai within himself. With the guidance of the Divine and our ancient Siddhars, our Varmaguru has started out on the lifelong journey towards to researching, reviving and spreading the ancient yogic wisdom of Varmakkalai, in particular the amazing Mudra Science, for the well-being of fellow human beings.
