Profile of Sutapa Das
Sutapa Das is a resident monk at ISKCON UK’s headquarters, Bhaktivedanta Manor. He oversees the monastic programme, leads on national outreach projects, and is a mentor and counsellor for the community’s youth groups. He has written and teaches courses on spirituality, lifestyle management, success principles, and devotional practices at the affiliated college. He also lectures at universities, including UCL, Cambridge, Kings College and SOAS. He has authored a series of book guides on scripture and theology.
For the past twenty years, Sutapa has studied ancient Sanskrit texts in depth, particularly the Bhagavad-gita, and has a passion to share the insights and worldviews these texts offer. Himself from London suburbs, Sutapa was always attracted to the idea of ’simple living, high thinking’. In 2002, after graduating from UCL with a BSc in Information Management, he adopted full-time monastic life to further his knowledge, deepen his spirituality, and share these timeless principles with the wider society.
