Urban Monk: Exploring Karma, Consciousness, and the Divine by Gadadhara Pandit Dasa (Author)

From the hills of Hollywood to the sacred soil of India and the chic avenues of the East Village of New York City, Gadadhara Pandit Dasa has found himself at the nexus of the spiritual bridge between East and West. In Urban Monk, Pandit speaks to the loneliness, emptiness and vulnerability of our post-modern society through his remarkable journey into the life of a monk. Through his open-hearted and open-minded exploration of some of the most vital concepts of our contemporary spirituality, Pandit shares the deep wisdom of the East and its intimate and universal connection to our global experience. Urban Monk is the story of a rare and courageous soul who has timeless wisdom to share for the uncertain ways and paths of the 21st Century.

Gadadhara Pandit Dasa (also known as Pandit) is a monk, lecturer and the first-ever Hindu chaplain for Columbia University, New York University, and Union Theological Seminary. He speaks at the nation’s leading universities, yoga studios, and retreat centers, inspiring audiences with India’s spiritual wisdom. His unique approach combines teachings of the ancient classic, Bhagavad Gita, with popular Hollywood movies. Pandit spoke at a recent TEDx conference at Columbia University and was featured in the NPR piece “Long Days and Short Nights of a Hindu Monk.” He appeared in the PBS Documentary on the Bhagavad Gita, as well as The New York Times. He is also a regular contributor for the Huffington Post.

Pandit on Love: Service and Sacrifice Without Expectation –

Gadadhara Pandit Dasa is the Hindu chaplain at NYU and Columbia. He recently published his first book called, “Urban Monk: Exploring Karma, Consciousness, and the Divine.” If you’re interested in learning more about Hinduism, this is a great story about a kid growing up in LA who found inner peace in a Hindu monastery, ultimately settling down as a monk in New York City. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Pandit to talk about love. You can learn more about Pandit on his website or by following him on Twitter. –
