At an early age, Swāmī Bhakti Pranaya Padmanābha delved deep into the theology of diverse mystical traditions. After taking up Kṛṣṇa bhakti, he has dedicated himself to an extensive study of the Gauḍīya Vedānta texts under the guidance of his devotional mentors. Fluent in English and Spanish, Swāmī has written hundreds of articles in both languages. For the past twenty years, he has traveled around the world and lectured in universities, āśramas, and yoga studios. Most of his numerous talks and seminars are available online. As a leader of spiritual retreats and communities, he inspires both practitioners and visitors with his penetrating teachings and personal example.
