Why Protect Heritage?

Our mission is to protect culture by preserving ancient cultural heritage. Why do we need culture?. Culture preserves the most valubale aspect of human, the mind. We document many ancient methods in health science, education, etc in this site. Why do we need old when we are evolving to modern ways?  What will happen if we dont preserve culture?

Here is a simple story to illustrate the point.

Once there was a prince who immediately after the throning ceremony ordered to kill all old people above because they are not good looking and cannot work energetically and a waste to feed them at home.  Everybody thought it made sense and killed their parents, except one young man in the village. He hid his parents in an attic. In spring when the people wanted to do farming, they did not know how to get the rice seeds because they have used up all of them in the winter. They felt bad that they had killed that information by killing all the old people who had that knowledge. Now they really repented for it but nobody had a solution.

The youngman told about his old parents in the attitic. The majestic king went in person to meet the old guys in attitic because they now suddently became so valuable. The old parents asked the king to look for the sporuting rice plants from the seeds that accidently fell down when they carried from farmland to market. He carefully replanted the rice plants in farmland. From then on started the practice of transplanting rice spalings from one field to another.

The king was overjoyed and congradulated the youngman for reviving farming and saving everyone from famine, by preserving his old parents. The king understood his mistake and ordered that everybody should take care of their old parents for their guiding wisdom.

This story is a symbolic of the work Uni5 Sakthi Foundation does by documenting all the ancient methods. One day when we dont understand the importance of wisdom, we will have this site to refer and revive humanity.We have five levels of information ...on health, relationships, education, selftual Awareness for being happy and Consciousness for eternity. Any time we want to most valuable information/knolwedge, this site will have it.

Please donate to the help these projects for everybody's future.


 We are planning to support Heritage in several countures.

2. Angor Vat heritage Project

Education Background

  • Ph.D in Cancer Biology, Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai, India
  • Post doctoral Fellow, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, NY.
  • M. S. Biochemistry PSGCAS, Coimbatore (India)
  • B. S. Biochemistry PSGCAS, Coimbatore (India)

Importance of Ph.D work in Cancer : This work was the first to show the effect of Clesitanthin compounds purified from cleistanthus collinus on cancer cells with least effect on normal cells in comparison to other leading cancer drugs. Cleistanthus collinus is a toxic plant , but purification results in removing the toxic effects and showing anticancerous activity.

This work is still motivating other researchers to work on these compounds.  https://www.alliedacademies.org/conference-abstracts-files/molecules-targeting-cancer-stem-cells.pdf  Godvari Refinieries ,  Sathgen,  a company has studied the effect on clesitanthin and its derivatives.

Uni5 Logo

  Uni5LogoFor everyone their own Self is important than anything in this world. In fact all that exist for every one is their inner Self and the external Universe. The outer and inner is made up of only Energy. Though this Energy inside and outside is only one and Same, we have a duality of "I" and other matter. Then we have a question where did I and this matter come and is there a connection or not.

To make this concept understand in a easy way, we view this single Universal Energy  manifestation in a pattern of five phenomenal states. The Universal Self pattern refers to the five pattern of Energy.

 This five pattern is also seen within us as our

1. Physical (occupying space-time) Body,

2.Chemical (interactive) Mind,

3. Mathematical (calculating) Intelligence

4. Biological (living) Awareness and

5. Selftual (all embracing) Consciousness.

 The individual has the choice to recongize one's own Self to be the changing physical body and emotional mind or the cognizing intelligence or the Self awareness or the Community Self Consciousness.

Being in the Self Awareness/ Consciouness state is Selftual, the core message of Uni5 Community.

Every choice comes with a result. Identifying oneself to the changing body and mind results in fear of old-age, death and decay.

Identifying oneself to the intelligence results in confidence in realizing the reality of Energy evolution of the Universe.

sakthi logo 2015Identifying oneself to the Self-Awareness results in being the inner Evolution.

Identifying oneself to the Community Self Consciousness results in a Eternal steady state of existence.

 Everlasting happiness comes when the individual Self is connected to the Community Self. This is shown by the invidual self pointing finger (fore-finger) joining the thumb finger denoting the Community Self Consciousness.

The single Universal Energy expanded in five process to this existing Universe. Then this Energy goes back to the same Source. The five hands and the U gives the meaning that all that came goes back to the source (inclined C shape).

In the logo the five fingers are five in number, uni5 is four in number, All that is 3 in number, I am is two in number , Eternal is one in number.

The word "I am Eternal" refers to the state when the individual transcends to the state of a community Self. At this state  the indivudal self recognizes the Single Universal Energy state.

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed (Eternal) only transformed from one form to another. So our Self is Eternal.

Five Uni5 Principles

 1. Thumb - The Purpose of life is to be happy.

 2. Index -  "As is the Macro-Universe (our outer) so is the Micro-Universe (our inner)".

 3. Middle - The Universal Energy can neither be created nor destroyed but transform from one form to another.

4. Ring - Transformation (evolution) of the mind to higher level of views  is inevitable for happy life.

5. Little -Every action has an effect and so choose actions that bring Eternal happiness.

The Hierarchy Uni5 Triangle and Selftual Circle: When we identify ourself with our physical body, emotional mind and intellectual logics, there is a hierarchy of superiority. In the Self level, there is only the Self at its center and any size circle with a range of circumference could be drawn. Our Self (image) is determined by how far we embrace this universe. 

Sarvam khalvidam Evaham Nanya Dashti Sanathanam- All that is, I am, Eternal.
