Spiritual Tools For Life

Dandapani is a Hindu priest, self development speaker and an entrepreneur of Sri Lankan ancestry. He grew up in Australia and graduated university with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He chose to leave all that behind however, and become a Hindu monk under the guidance of one of Hinduism’s top spiritual leaders, Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. For the next ten years Dandapani lived a life of extreme personal discipline and training at his guru’s cloistered monastery in Hawaii.
