Bob Blackman MP, the All Party Parliamentary Group for British Hindus and SHYAM cordially invite you to Dhruv Chhatralia’s 400th talk celebrations and SHYAM’s 12th birthday celebrations being celebrated in one evening at the UK Parliament.

About the significance of the event

This event will celebrate Dhruv Chhatralia BEM’s 400th public talk and the 12th anniversary of an epic journey that began in 2011 when Dhruv Chhatralia BEM gave his first public talk in the City. The event will feature an inspirational talk by Dhruv Chhatralia BEM on “The Secrets of Success in Career Management according to the Hanuman Chalisa”. It will be held in the same room where Rishi Sunak was successfully voted in as the new UK Prime Minister by Members of Parliament.

Dhruv Chhatralia BEM is an author of 21 books on Hinduism and he has given over 340 public talks of over 400 hours between them on spirituality including on the Bhagavad Gita, Hanuman Chalisa, Ramayan, Shrimad Bhagavad, Shree Suktam, Devi Mahatmaya, the Upanishads, the Vedas, Yoga and Meditation that are watched in over 161 countries around the world, with over 400,000 views on YouTube and over 320,000 fans on facebook. Dhruv is the first person to give talks at the UK Parliament on each of the Bhagavad Gita, Ramayan, Hanuman Chalisa, Shrimad Bhagavatam, Shree Suktam and Devi Mahatmaya.

Dhruv was included in Her Majesty The Queen’s 2020 New Year Honours List for the award of a BEM for voluntary service to Hinduism and developing young people. He has spoken on Hinduism at the British Army, House of Commons, House of Lords, Home Office, BT, PricewaterhouseCoopers, EY, Nomura International Bank, Barclays Bank, Macquarie Bank Group, EDF Energy, State Bank of India, CMS Cameron McKenna, Intercontinental Hotel, AasthaTV channel, BBC nationwide television, BBC radio, the Commonwealth Journalists Association, Nusoundradio, TeluguVani radio, Kings College London, and at community halls in Central London, North London, Croydon, Leyton, Kingston, Luton, Nottingham and Ipswich. A live Yoga session by Dhruv Chhatralia in the City was televised nationally on BBC national television.

On 7 August 2014 Dhruv made history after successfully completing 154 weeks and 225 hours of continuous 140 weekly talks on the Bhagavad Gita after three years, at an event described by a Member of Parliament as “a triumphant moment in the history of Hinduism” and by the former Deputy Prime Minister as “a historic completion”. On 24 February 2016 Dhruv made history by speaking at both Houses of the British Parliament in one evening.

Dhruv wrote the longest ever English commentaries on the great Indian works the Bhagavad Gita, the Hanuman Chalisa and the Shree Suktam in history, between them comprising over 3,467 pages, over 2.4 million words and over 10.5 million characters between them. All the proceeds from these books went to charity.

He then created a programme of over 180 Bhagavad Gita, Hanuman Chalisa and Shree Suktam classes in English to educate youngsters about the Eastern scriptures. He made history by completing a sacred Gita Gnyan Yagna of 140 weekly talks on the Bhagavad Gita at a City law firm over the course of three years, which were attended by thousands of young professionals in the City.

Dhruv set up SHYAM as an educational not-for-profit organisation to empower and educate individuals of all backgrounds with the wisdom of Eastern culture and provide a practical means to lead a life of excellence, success and inner wealth.

Dhruv’s work appeals directly to young people. He has embraced social networking and created a facebook page (www.facebook.com/gitadass) which now has over 320,000 fans.

Dhruv’s talks are available for free on SHYAM’s webpage: www.gitaclass.org. He has been on the radio, press articles and internet broadcasts, and has given talks directly to youths throughout the UK to empower them.

About the significance of the talk

The talk will describe the secrets of success in career management we can learn from the Hanuman Chalisa through an in-depth commentary of the Hanuman Chalisa. The Hanuman Chalisa describes the endless glories, valour and greatness of the best manager and the most successful person the world has ever known: Shree Hanuman Ji. The talk will show how, by worshipping Hanumanji, Hanuman Ji blesses us with His qualities that are necessary to accomplish our goals in life. The sacred verses of the Hanuman Chalisa contain the secrets to success in life that bestow intelligence, strength and virtue to all those who contemplate and meditate upon it.

Dhruv Chhatalia BEM has written the longest commentary on the Hanuman Chalisa in history. This sacred book was written with the purpose of teaching the social, psychological, spiritual and management applications of the most popular mantra: the Hanuman Chalisa. The highlights are: English translation of each word and each verse of the Hanuman Chalisa along with its detailed explanation; its social message as a guidance to modern life; solutions to various challenges in life; scientific and spiritual meanings of Hanuman Chalisa; and an explanation of Management Principles. This is a unique scholarly work with in-depth analysis of the Hanuman Chalisa specially for the younger generations. The book was published on Hanuman Jayanti and was officially launched by Pujyashree Morari Bapu during his Ram Katha in Rome.

Thank you all for being an integral part of our success and we look forward to celebrating with you at the event.
