Sutapa Das is a resident monk at ISKCON UK’s headquarters, Bhaktivedanta Manor. He oversees the School of Bhakti, a unique centre of spiritual excellence which organises courses, retreats and various cultural events. Sutapa also heads the monastic training programme, leads on national outreach projects, and is a mentor and counsellor for the community’s youth groups. He has designed and taught numerous courses on spirituality, lifestyle management, success principles, and devotional practices, and has lectured at various universities, including UCL, Cambridge, Kings College and SOAS. Sutapa has also 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 that these texts offer. Originally from London suburbs, Sutapa was always attracted to the idea of ’simple living, high thinking.’ In 2002, after graduating from UCL (University College London) 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.
The posts in this blog are his reflections based on the teachings of the Bhagavad-gita, as explained by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
