Rahul Easwar is a media personality and author from Kerala, India. He was working in Malayalam television media. Easwar also takes sessions on corporate training, philosophy, 'lifology' and is an orator.


Early and family life

Rahul Easwar was born in a Namboothiri Brahmin family. He is the grandson of the Tantri (Supreme Priest) of Sabarimala, Tantri Kantararu Maheshwararu. His higher studies were in philosophy and psychology.

In media

He was the spokesperson for priests of Sabarimala during the Jaimala Controversy and Tantri controversy issues. When many feminist organisations and other sections demanded the entry for women in Sabarimala, he countered their arguments, claiming that 'Sabarimala temple's philosophy is the philosophy of celibacy and keeping out woman for creating a 'psychological space'. He also countered the arguments of Kerala Government in Indian Supreme Court that 'Sabarimala was a Buddhist shrine' by saying that the allegations are foolish and baseless.

Easwar was coordinating the Tantris and Brahmins of Kerala to allow the entry of all believers irrespective of religion into temples. He was in the media taking the initiative and presenting 'Second Temple Entry Proclamation'.

Easwar was in news when he lashed out at the Kerala minister G. Sudhakaran saying the minister has attacked and hurt sentiments of the Hindu community. He was arrested for trying to conduct a 'symbolic protest pooja' in front of Kerala Secretariat against G. Sudhakaran. He was arrested by the Kerala Police twice for his protests against Government and Devasom Minister. He also initiated the campaign against controversial painter M.F. Hussain in Kerala, resulting in the withdrawal of Raja Ravi Varma award for Hussain upon the suggestion of Kerala High Court. He alleged that Hussain has insulted 'Bharat Matha' and Hindu deities by painting them in a wrong manner.

When the controversy regarding Makara Jyothy and Makara Vilakku came up in Sabarimala, he clarified that Makara Jyothy and Makara Vilakku are two different phenomenon. He countered the arguments of Kerala Yuktivadi Sangham, (Kerala Rationalist Association) and to the surprise of many Kerala's Atheists, Devasom Board Minister G.Sudhakaran supported Rahul Easwar's stand regarding the same. He is regarded as a spokesperson for temple traditions and Indian culture.

Published books

He has published two books on his studies: The Philosophy of Philosophy and The Philosophy of Vedanta.
