Introduction I lived the first 25 years of my life in California, graduated from Stanford University and embarked on a PhD program. I then came to India where I have lived, for the last 18 years, on one of India's most renowned ashrams, Parmarth Niketan, on the banks of the Ganges, Rishikesh. I live in the seva of one of India's most revered spiritual teachers, H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, the spiritual head and president of Parmarth Niketan and the founder of several non-profit organizations including the Divine Shakti Foundation, Global Interfaith WASH Alliance, Ganga Action Parivar, & India Heritage Research Foundation. I spend my days engaged in a variety of seva (service) including giving lectures/discourses, leading question-answer satsangs, teaching meditation, counseling on life and spirituality, writing articles and books, and helping the vast humanitarian projects run under Pujya Swamiji's inspiration and guidance, and any other need that arises. I am president of the Divine Shakti Foundation, Secretary-General of the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance and Director of the International Yoga Festival.
