Vedic Learning and related work:
Sri K Suresh also devoted time to learn multiple Vedas simultaneously alongside his corporate career.
He is learning Rig Veda from Sri B V Surya Narayana Bhat Ghanapatigal, Mylapore, Chennai and Sri Govinda Prakash Bhat Ghanapatigal, Bengaluru and learnt Krishna Yajur Veda from Late Sri V G Subramanya Ghanapatigal (VGS), Mylapore, Chennai and learnt Sukla Yajur Veda (Kaanva Shaaka) from Late Sri. Parasurama Ghanapatigal, Ambattur, Chennai.
He also learnt Krishna Yajur Veda and other related aspects from Sri P.S. Ananthanarayana Somayaji (Musiri Deekshitar) of Musiri, Tamil Nadu.
Sri K Suresh also founded the unique method of Vedic chanting called Suresha Paddhati.
Suresha Paddhati is a method of reciting Samhita and other Vikrti Paatha like Ghana Patha, from more than one Veda, for example Rig & Yajur Veda immediately and simultaneously to highlight the difference in Svara (Accent or intonation), Pada (Words), the place of its occurrences and Sandhi rules due to its Lakshana as per the respective Vedic Schools or Shaakas. This is the first time a Vedic Chant of this kind is recited.
Suresha Paddhati was first discovered during the year 2000 by Sri K Suresh during a Soma Yajna held in Thiruvaiyaaru, Tamil Nadu, India, and was first recognised by Sri PS Ananthanarayana Somayaji (Musiri) a renowned Vedic Scholar who named this unique method after its founder, Sri K. Suresh, and called it Suresha Paddhati. Later on HH Sri Sri Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt, and HH Sri Sri Shankaracharya of Sringeri Sarada Mutt, Sri Sri Swarnavalli Swamigal of Sirsi, Sri Sri Pejavara Mutt Swamigal, Sri Sri Shivakumara Swamiji of Siddaganga Mutt, Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamigal and Sri Sri Ravishankar Guruji applauded this concept and honoured Sri Suresh.
As of 2023, Mr. Suresh has published 22 books on Vedas and Vedic Recitation, particularly focusing on the Ghana Patha form of Vedic chanting in Rig Veda, Krishna Yajur Veda and Sukla Yajur Veda. He has also produced and published 9 audio CDs in the Ghana Patha recitation of mantras from these three Vedas.
Currently, he manages the very popular YouTube channel – The Ghanapati – where he regularly publishes Vedic chants rendered with clarity, precision and proper pronunciation.
