Profile of Mahatma Das
Mahatama Das was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1950. In 1969, at the age of 19, Mahatma Das first received The Bhagavad Gita As It Is, and then later that year, he personally met Srila Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna movement. In January of 1970, he moved into the temple in Berkeley, California and shortly after, received first and second liturgical initiation. He went on to do a variety of services including book distribution, temple presidency, college programs, and various educational projects.
An inspirational speaker and mentor, Mahatma Das has worked for years in formulating how to bring the knowledge of the ancient Krishna conscious scriptures out of the books and demonstrate its effectiveness in addressing the socio-political and psychological needs of the day.
The result from all this endeavour is mind blowing seminars, books, and workshops that Mahatma Das has conducted on all sorts of contemporary issues like gender dynamics, building relationships, psychological healing and forgiveness. He also does sessions of a more devotional nature like spiritual growth, humility, and sonic meditation and is well known for his spiritual music, most notably his recording of the beautiful primeval prayers, the Brahma Samhita.
All his work bears holistic solutions and pathways steeped in the scriptures of the Krishna conscious tradition. His company Sattva [www.thesattvaway.com] showcases the work he does and helps and guides people to mould their whole life so that it becomes one sacred act of spiritual integration.
