Even if it’s not the hottest book on the Barnes & Noble store shelves now, Vijay Eswaran’s “In The Sphere Of Silence” is still widely-read and is still being talked about by the famous Malaysian entrepreneur.
Eswaran has certain characteristics that he defines leaders in the business and philanthropy spheres, and spiritualism is one aspect that he embraces in his daily life. The book talks about the practices of silence and taking moments throughout the day to observe it.
The reason Vijay Eswaran is still talking about it in interviews and press releases is that he sees the growth of mobile technology and constant increase in computer use as something that can interfere with a person’s health and well-being, and he believes that taking breaks from the constant use can lead to better morale in the workplace.

Vijay Eswaran’s background in spirituality came from his family who observed Malaysian traditions as he grew up. Both parents encouraged him to work hard for his dreams, and Eswaran excelled in his studies so much so that he was able to enroll at the London School of Economics.
He completed his bachelor’s degree in socioeconomics there, and then went on to the graduate school program at Southern Illinois University. He stayed in the US for several years working as a consultant for several companies, but then he chose to return to Malaysia when he saw an opportunity to start a multilevel marketing company.
It was in 1998 that Eswaran and his friend Joseph Bismarck officially started QI Group Ltd. in Hong Kong. Within this company, QNet became the primary revenue driver through direct ecommerce sales, all of which are channeled through independent associates who can also earn commissions through referrals. But one of the company’s biggest accomplishments is the cofounding of QI University Perak, a campus that Eswaran is working to make green-friendly and full of affordable housing and transportation.
Eswaran has given back millions through the RYTHM Foundation part of QI Group, and he has spoken at length about it at gatherings like the 6th Pravasi Divas in India, and the World Economic Forum.
