Mr. Ahluwalia has been an achiever throughout his professional career spanning more than 20 years in the telecommunication, media and information technology field.

A businessman with an abiding interest in spirituality especially Sri Aurobindo's philosophy and his vision of a New Man, Aditya Ahluwalia wished to contribute in his own way to the betterment of humanity and the world through Life Positive.

He promoted and set-up the Life Positive magazine in 1996 which is in its 17th year of publication. When Life Positive first began in April 1996, it was fulfilling an unmet need and entering into a virgin market. Holistic philosophy, methodologies and practice or the concept of New Age, were unheard of in mainstream publishing. Fifteen years later, spirituality and holistic living are provoking regular coverage in mainstream publications. The shift is also influencing lifestyles, changing perspectives and worldviews and generating a stream of products and services. People are going public with their relationship with God, and yoga and meditation halls are filling up rapidly.

Life Positive united Indian seekers under a common umbrella and gave them a sense of fellowship that many may have lacked. This explains the strong emotional bond between the magazine and the reader.

Life Positive Foundation has organized many workshops, exhibitions and talks in related matters. Some of the practitioners who have participated in these workshops are Dr. Paula Horan, Dr. Ashwani Chopra, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, Dr. H.K. Chopra, Dr. Newton Kondaveti, Ketan Shah, Shruti, Dr. Somesh Chadha, Harshada Wagner, Pradeep Agarwal, Sivananda Yoga Institute, Sunyogi Uma Shanker, Pt. Gopal Sharma, Dr. Vinod Kochupillai, Dr. Madhu Khanna and many others.
Talks by many spiritual masters have been organized by the Foundation including Sri Sri Ravi Shakar, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudei, Swami Veda Bharti, Anandmurti Gurumaa, Dada Vaswani, Swami Kriyanandji, Swami Chidananda Saraswati and others.

He has now taken the initiative to begin a magazine for pre-teens and teens titled “Life Positive Jr”. The vision of the magazine is

  • To prepare children of today for an interconnected world of tomorrow where money, material pursuits and external beauty will no longer be supreme.
  • To help them understand that respect for all human beings nay all of nature is essential.
  • To help them understand the true nature of their being, their purpose and role in this divine life and to realise their highest potential.


Such spiritual education is sorely lacking in our education system and he hopes that the presence of such a magazine will fulfil yet another unmet need amongst our youth.
