Soul mates forever

Dr Newton and Dr Lakshmi Kondaveti, renowned practitioners of past-life regression, talk to Suma Varughese on how spirituality has shaped their lives and thoughts

Dr Newton Kondaveti and his wife, Dr Lakshmi, look like fresh-faced youngsters just out of college. And yet, in the spiritual world, their names command tremendous respect and love. If past-life regression is virtually a household practice today, a great deal of the credit goes to this Hyderabad-based couple, who was among the early pioneers of this technique.

Their indefatigable efforts to popularize the science has created a huge industry and thousands of practitioners.  Today, they claim to have conducted more than 100,000 past-life regressions.  This apart, they have founded several organisations such as the Life Research Academy (LRA) whose purpose is to conduct courses on past-life regression, inner child work and breathwork; and Association for Regression and Reincarnation Research (ARRR) which supports research on reincarnation and past-life regression. Their most ambitious plan is the Life University, which is a prototype of the ancient universities of Takshashila and  Nalanda. Their vision is as lofty as it gets: to see every individual on Earth becoming a realised master. To this end they have travelled to over a hundred countries to conduct workshops on spirituality. Well, if this does not materialize any time soon, it won’t be their fault!

What is the source of your inspiration?

During meditation, I, Newton, recalled and relived many of my past lives including one as an Acharya at the ancient university of Takshashila, where I was teaching reincarnation and the law of karma. I got the following insights: Our external environment is a reflection of our
