Narveen Aryaputri As Cover Story Interview Feature – TheCelebrity.Online March 2023 Edition
How do you introduce yourself?
Narveen Aryaputri: I run an institute for the ongoing work of independent scholarship and education including the field of Integrative Wholistic Healing. Personally, I am a writer and an artist.
How was the transition from your childhood into adulthood/teenage and what good and bad things do you remember?
Narveen Aryaputri: My childhood and teenage years were in India. I loved the learning in school and university. My happiest memories are at the library. I loved doing well at tests, exams, getting a state level distinction for Critical Analysis, in Home Science. My very 1st memory is of finger painting in kindergarten and my next memory is walking with my mother in her garden. I loved going to gardens with my mother, who always had beautiful gardens where ever she went. Dad was in the military, so it was life in various cantonments. Plants are a very important part of my life, and the love of them is central to my daily experience.
The bad part was me, in my independent nature clashing with the Indian cultural perimeters for women despite the understanding of my parents. However, those perimeters for women are still in existence in my adult years, even in America. It is a clash that is more than what was obvious in my teenage years. In retrospect I see that India was not that oppressive in the environment of my family and upbringing when I compare my world view today.
Struggle – What hardships have you faced during your life?
Narveen Aryaputri: The biggest hardship is being an intelligent woman. Intelligence in a woman can be a difficult burden. The support system is almost nonexistent. My freedom came when I learned I need none, that I can be happy within myself, that I can be of benefit to others with my Swabhava, which is Sanskrit for innate nature which is given at birth/which one comes with from a previous life. However, this reality of being an intelligent woman is still an issue, but a manageable one. There is much in a woman’s world that is still is a clash with people in our 21stC environment.
What things people usually do not know about you?
- That I am an artist and a really good one!
- That I seek Beauty in its true classical sense.
What make you unique from your competitors in the industry and life?
Narveen Aryaputri: We are all born unique yet similar in our humanity. We have abilities which grow and develop, sharpen and get fine tuned as needed in our lives. My unique contribution is my vision and insight, my ability to see the levels of reality around me, to connect the dots, seeing the whole picture, or leading to the next level to see the whole picture. My ability to concentrate effort till I have understood. My interest is in the larger picture, of understanding. I have no interest in petty concepts that have no meaningful relevance.
What are your major upcoming events?
- The InstituteCHT upcoming events which is published on our website and sent to our mailing list.
- My writings.
- My art. I prefer upcoming shows, and love to paint in the geographical area of my interest.
For example, I want to paint the movement of the animals during their annual migration, but to paint it there, where the animals are in their experience. And other areas. Right now I am studying the wildflowers of South West Texas, and the people living in South West Texas. I am seeking a real original ‘Shotgun house” almost all destroyed now.
What are your diet preference and physical measurements?
Narveen Aryaputri: I am a vegetarian. I cannot and so not have meat.. but sometimes will take fish if its from a clean source like fresh river, and without the ocean radiation or mercury.
What expert advice would you like to share?
Narveen Aryaputri: You have two different aspects: one is professional and one is social.
1: Keep your goals, while seeing how the team works, so you can be part of the team.
2: Know the goals of the company you are working for since you are duty bound to further them. If you do not like their goals, quit. Your time is too valuable.
3: Keep your private life out of your company’s territory.
1: Emotional Quotient is almost more important than Intelligent Quotient. I say ‘almost’ since intelligence is vital. With that is the mostly ignored emotional knowledge and sophistication. Both of these: IQ and EQ combined, are in good balance in the fine-tuned refinement of a socially adept, fully mature, well-adjusted comfortable individual.
2: Be sensitive to others own Spiritual reality. You cannot change people. Circumstances change people. They have their own Spiritual realizations at their own level. Be understanding of that reality.
3: Compassion is more relevant than forgiveness. Leave the work of the Universe to the Universe Divine Wisdom.
4: Do not look to others for your needs. Be self-sufficient enough to govern your space since you are in tune with your own Spiritual space.
5: Stay away from negativity and people whose vibrations do not match yours.

Narveen Aryaputri: The link to the website is www.qcinstitute.org
