Who is Jay Shetty?

Residing in Los Angeles, Shetty, along with his wife Radhi Devlukia-Shetty, actively engages in philanthropy. In 2020, the couple raised an impressive $5 million in just 24 hours for Give India, aiding over 800 students through Pencils of Promise and earning Shetty the title of Philanthropist of the Year.

Born and raised in London, Shetty’s journey took a transformative turn after graduating with a 1st Class Honors Degree in Management Science from Cass Business School in 2010. He opted for a three-year stint as a Hindu monk in India and the UK, trading business suits for robes and embracing a minimalist lifestyle that included waking up at 4 am, cold showers, and simplifying his diet.

During his monkhood, Shetty delved deep into daily meditation, ancient practices of breath and mindfulness, and explored philosophies and sciences of the East. In 2013, he left the monastery and returned to London, where he began sharing his insights and practical applications of his monk learnings in the workplace, often speaking at companies.

Shetty’s foray into the digital landscape commenced when Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post, invited him to host HuffPost Rise in New York in 2016. Capitalizing on the expanding digital space, he began creating short videos on YouTube, eventually leading to the launch of his own podcast, “On Purpose with Jay Shetty,” in 2019.

The podcast has since gained immense popularity, boasting over 35 million monthly downloads and featuring influential guests such as Oprah Winfrey, US President Joe Biden, Selena Gomez, Will Smith, Kobe Bryant, and more. It has secured spots in Spotify’s Top 5 Podcasts globally and Apple’s Top 20 Podcasts of the Year.

Jay Shetty expanded his influence into the literary world, releasing his first book, “Think Like A Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Everyday,” in 2020. The book achieved notable success, making it to the New York Times and UK Sunday Times bestsellers lists, while also earning the title of Best Audio Book of the Year by Apple Books.

His second book, “8 Rules of Love: How to Find It, Keep It, and Let It Go,” released last year, continued the trend, becoming a New York Times and global bestseller.

Beyond his literary and podcasting success, Shetty is the founder of the Jay Shetty Certification School, offering life coaching certificates to individuals and organizations.

The courses, attended by over 2 million students, provide weekly programming on health and wellness principles to thousands of members globally. Additionally, he founded Calm, a meditation startup valued at $2 billion, where he holds the position of “Chief Inspiration Officer.”
