Dr. Bhatta is currently working as chief of urology at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine.

Dr. Bhatta is also an expert in the study of intermittent silence, mediation, and Gita and has created Relaxx, an application that serves as a portable guru for finding peace and happiness.[4] He has authored several publications and patents along with his book Journey from Life to Life: Achieving Higher Purpose, which aims at bridging the gap between the western and eastern philosophy by answering spiritual questions with a practical bent of mind.[5]

Early life and education

Dr. Bhatta was born in an Indian village, Balbandh, near Ara, Bihar to Paramhans Ray who was a professor, and Sharda Devi.

Dr. Bhatta pursued his MS and MBBS degree at Patna Medical College and graduated in 1971. He then shifted to the United Kingdom to complete further education and training. Dr. Bhatta did research and medical training at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston after that.[6]

Career

Dr. Bhatta has been a medical practitioner for over twenty years. He is associated with several medical facilities including Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center, St. Joseph Hospital, and Northern Light Sebasticook Valley Hospital.

During his career, Dr.Bhatta developed a fascination with spiritual studies. He worked to study the high rate of burnout in the physician community. To address this issue, Dr. Bhatta leveraged spiritual studies to understand human consciousness and find a solution to prevent burnout and accelerate the human mind and body function.[7]

Dr. Bhatta currently serves as the chief of urology at the Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center.[8][9]

Dr. Bhatta, with his research, developed an advanced meditation application called Relaxx, which leverages intermittent silence and meditation to help the users achieve peace, happiness, tranquility, and relaxation by reducing stress and burnout.[10] The purpose of creating such an application was to bring Eastern spiritual values and its essential elements to the Western world. This application contains a variety of guided and unguided meditation practice modules that aim at creating an individualized experience by rejuvenating the mind, body, and the flame (of consciousness).[11]

Dr. Bhatta is the author of two books, Gita Today and Journey from Life to Life: Achieving Higher Purpose.[12] Gita Today was published in 2011, which is based on the Indian holy scripture Gita, which brings forth the ideology of success from a newer perspective. The journey from Journey from Life to Life: Achieving Higher Purpose was released in 2019, which aims at bridging the gap between the western and eastern philosophy by answering spiritual questions with a practical bent of mind.[13]
