Gopinath Chandra Das

A premier institute – the IIT – groomed Gopinath Chandra Das into a technocrat. Perhaps he was then expected to dive into some sort of cutting-edge research. But providence edged him out of mainstream science, and he found myself digging into books of the ancient Indians, the Vedas.

So far he has spent 15 years in the monastery at Sri Sri Radhagopinath Temple (ISKCON) situated in South Mumbai. As a Vedic Life Coach, he helps people improve the quality of their lives, and his background in science and technology helps him present the Vedas in a scientific light.
