Born in Orléans, France in 1950, Rakendra first seek 'Truth' within freemasonry, a philosophical school. Yet, intellectual values and concepts could not replace a lived experience; his heart was still longing for lived truth. Advaïta - Chan and Zen paved the way to this experience.

On 'The Way', many awakened ones helped to fill this heart-longing and living in a Buddha field in Pune, India for over 10 years provided tremendous opportunities to grow and to experience life in a different way.

Rakendra is now based in Chiang Mai, Thailand from where he travels to many countries sharing his passion for self-enquiry work.
