About Sarvamangala Foundation
The Sarvamangala Maṇḍala or “All-Auspicious Circle“ is committed to teaching and sharing ancient meditative practices that help improve mental clarity, absolute awareness and unconditional compassion.
Sarvamangala means “All-Auspicious”, “Auspicious from All Angles”, “Good on All Sides”, “All-Round Happiness”, “Beneficial on All Sides, “Universal Benefit”.
The purpose of Sarvamangala is to offer a platform to students across the world to discover the nature of their own awareness and allow their innate kindness to flourish. To this end, Sarvamangala offers various online resources, online sessions, seminars, workshops, and retreats in the English countryside, Switzerland and Austria (in the post-Covid future, also in the sacred land of India).
Meditation is the art of closely witnessing the sensations of the body, the emotions, the mind and the mind's experiences and states.
When we gently witness a state without rejecting or holding on to it, it begins to dissolve. Rigid patterns begin to melt. By consciously giving rise to unconditional compassion for others, our being begins to be permeated by a stream of bliss. What flows from this is an intuitive spontaneity.
In the instantaneous power of the present moment, we discover our innate compassion, the source of our ability to benefit others.
To use the precious time we have in our human embodiment to experience the true nature of conscious being and cultivate boundless compassion and kindness. The true nature of awareness is like the sky.
To know its nature is to be like an eagle soaring in the sky. But the true nature of compassion is like the earth. To know its nature is to be firmly grounded with both feet, helping others wherever possible.

One of his dream-projects even as a youth was to “live on an island where there is no time”. In some sense, Sarvamangala is this dream come true: In the deepest states of awareness meditation infused by compassion, time is absent. The mind rests in the space of luminous awareness as if dwelling upon an island unshaken by the storms of self-centred emotions and mental states, manifesting only as a fresh-water spring of kindness.
Previously, Jaimin ran a successful podcast interviewing CEOs, New York Times bestselling authors and leading personalities who shared stories, strategies and secrets about their understanding of life.
Currently, he is working as the Head of Growth for a rapidly growing SaaS platform called AcademicLabs that connects academic experts from around the world to businesses to help them benefit from the latest data driven insights curated through publications, patents, research groups, and clinical trials.
