Coming from a Hindu Bengali family in South London, Niskincana has often grappled with notions of identity, morality, in-depth vedic knowledge and its relevance to modern social discourse. However, overriding all these areas of enquiry, was the question of our nature of existence. What is our true identity? Where are we coming from? Where are we going? These were the questions that really preoccupied Niskincana’s interests.
After many years of seeking avenues to real happiness, he finally came across the teachings of Srila Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna movement. Having served as a monk for the last ten years at the Bhaktivedanta Manor temple, Niskincana has seen how the Krishna conscious way of living can truly benefit people in all facets of existence from the social and the political to the emotional, psychological and, of course, the spiritual level.
