Noble World Foundation (NWF) is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization founded in October 2004 in Illinois. Its mission is to build a noble world through meditation. The one you have been searching for is you. So, turn within to find yourself.

Individuals make a family, families make a society, societies make a nation, and nations make a world. Thus, individuals are the world. When individuals experience inner peace through meditation, the world automatically becomes peaceful. 

The real welfare of the people lies in cultivating a feeling of universal brotherhood, the oneness of humanity. NWF serves people of all races, creeds, and religions through this website. It offers various programs that lead people to the practice of meditation.

Shiv R. Jhawar is the founder of Noble World Foundation, a tax-exempt, non-profit organization. He believes that self-realization (atmasakshatkar) – the highest possible evolution – is the birthright of all human beings, regardless of their race, nationality, or religion.

On September 16, 1974, Shiv Jhawar experienced a spiritual awakening while attending Baba Muktananda’s public talk on the topic of meditation in Chicago. Noticing that some people in the audience got frightened by the dramatic awakening Jhawar was experiencing, Baba commented, “Do not be frightened. Sometimes kundalini gets awakened in this way.”

Following the meditation talk, Jhawar prostrated himself in front of Baba in deep gratitude. Baba patted him on his back and said, “Read the book, Guru. Tell your experience to others.” (Please note that Harper & Row in America first published Baba’s book Play of Consciousness under the title Guru in 1971).

It is to share his kundalini awakening experience in obedience of Baba’s instruction that Jhawar wrote the book, Building a Noble World.

As a result of this kundalini awakening, a new life began for Jhawar. He started living an ordinary yet extraordinary life, immersed in the bliss of inner consciousness. Meditation just came to him, without ever having learned or practiced it.

Jhawar’s goal is to help others by sharing his wisdom and experiences. To this end, he has founded Noble World Foundation to promote the inner transformation of individuals for peace, harmony, and well-being in the world. Jhawar never claims to be a guru. He asserts, “from my side, I am only a friendly guide who can help you meditate on your own Self, and also help you avoid pitfalls on the spiritual path.”

As a way to balance his spiritual life, Jhawar began his own tax practice as an Enrolled Agent (EA) under the firm name of SRJ Consulting in Chicago in 1975. As an EA licensed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Shiv Jhawar has been representing taxpayers before the IRS for tax issues including audits, appeals, and collections.
