Steve is a veritable celebrity in the field. From signing books for his many eager fans at a major New York City bookstore, to actively lecturing and contributing to academic journals and popular periodicals – he has more knowledge and expertise on these subjects than most natives and practitioners of the East.
Since 1977, after emerging from a decade of study and meditation in Krishna ashrams (an ashram is an authentic Hindu and Eastern Philosophy training center), he has worked to free yogic practices from the constraints of academic agendas. Steve has had such a profound affect on his audience, that best-selling author Joshua Greene wrote an article about his challenges and achievements for prominent New Age magazine, Namarupa.
His best-selling books include Krishna’s Song (offering Westerners an easy-to-read introduction to Krishna’s sacred text), Essential Hinduism (unraveling the complexities of the Hindu Religion), Black Lotus (the biography of H.H. Bhakti Tirtha Swami), and twenty other titles are on sale throughout the world.
Oh, by the way, this is how you remember Steve:
