Meditation TT Faculty
My spiritual journey began in 1972 when I met my guru Ramakrishna Ananda while traveling through Southern California. After studying with him for 5 months I received my spiritual name Vishnu Das (servant of the preserving aspect of the Divine). From this point forward, I have dedicated my life to personal spiritual unfoldment.
My interest in spiritual development fueled an enthusiasm for world mysticism. This led me to study Comparative Religions at York University and California State University Fullerton. After completing my Honours Degree in Comparative Religions, I continued my academic studies and received my Master’s degree from McMaster University in Sanskrit and Hindu Religious History, with a minor in Christian Studies.
Since 1998 I have been facilitating meditation classes and workshops in various parts of Ontario and in Vancouver, BC. My personal practice and coursework incorporate a blend of meditations drawn from a variety of religious and spiritual traditions, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity.
