About me

I was born into a Vaisnava family in the USA. My mother and father are Samkalpa Dasi and Janmastami Das. At the age of 5, I moved to India and stayed there for 17 years, spending most of my time in Mayapur. It was wonderful getting to know devotees from around the world. I especially enjoyed participating in the many kirtans in Mayapur. I finished high school, did my Bhakti Shastri, and then studied music full-time for several years. I’m an aspiring disciple of Radhanath Swami who I had the fortune of spending time with in Mumbai, India.

In 2013 I moved back to the USA and was requested by some devotees to start teaching kirtan instruments. I now teach mridanga, harmonium, and kartals full time. Because my schedule has been full for a while, I now hire 4 other teachers and connect students with them.  I really enjoy connecting devotee children with the beautiful art of Kirtan.

My hobbies are Yoga, swimming, reading, and learning more harmonium, singing and mridanga. I enjoy listening to devotee podcasts, other inspirational podcasts, debates, and philosophical discussions.
