Dr. Sanjay Mahalingam is a proficient academic and educator at the Sri Sathya Institute of Higher Learning, Prashanti Nilayam. While his areas of expertise include Quality Management, Operations Management, Supply Chain Management and Transformational Leadership, Dr. Sanjay is widely regarded as a gifted communicator, a skill that he has consciously employed in transmitting the teachings of our beloved spiritual master, Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
Dr. Sanjay has been blessed with innumerable personal interviews over the course of his years as a student of Sri Sathya Institute of Higher Learning. Amongst other travels such as those to Chennai for the Athi Rudra Maha Yagna (2007), he has had the rare fortune of accompanying Swami on the highly coveted Kodaikanal trips on three different occasions (2005, 2006 and 2007). He was an important part of the famous university convocation dramas of 2004 and 2005. These diverse interactions with Bhagwan allowed him to witness the munificence of the Avatar in its varied manifestations. Having spent a decade in the immediate proximity of such an Unparalleled Being, Dr. Sanjay has had the invaluable opportunity to be able to glean from his experiences with Bhagwan, wisdom that is astonishingly simple, yet very profound.
Passionate about self‐transformation and intrinsic human potential, Dr. Sanjay’s primary methodology draws upon traditional wisdom to solve contemporary problems. While mentoring ‘Swami’s’ students remains his abiding love and life’s delight, he is equally enthusiastic about working with devotees and executives, turning their snags ‘inside out’ and facilitating an environment of outer productivity fueled by inner joy. Among the many awards he has received, he cherishes most, the feedback he receives from students and workshop participants, year after year.
Dr. Sanjay Mahalingam, since completing his MBA (2004) and PhD (2008) from the Sri Sathya Institute of Higher Learning, Prashanti Nilayam, under the guidance of Bhagwan Baba, is living and working in Puttaparthi.
