Athavale was by profession a consultant clinical hypnotherapist from Mumbai. He undertook extensive research on clinical hypnosis both in India and overseas and practiced in Great Britain from 1971 to 1978.He observed that He had an excellent cure rate of 70%. However, 30% of His patients did not recover completely. After a while, He learned that some of these patients with whom He had very little success, had recovered after adopting spiritual remedies such as visiting sacred places, remaining in the holy company of spiritually evolved people (Saints) or performing certain religious rituals.
So he did the rounds of the “Hindu Saints” became the disciple of Bhaktaraj Maharaj from Madya Pradesh and in the words of his blog ” was graced with the attainment of His Guru H.H. Bhaktaraj Maharaj.” He statrted the Spiritual Research FoundationThe site can be accessed in 18 languages (Mostly European) and has nothing on Hinduism or Hindu Dharma but talks only of SPRITUALITY even offering to clear your house of Ghosts
