Pandit Dasa - Essence Statement
“Mind is the source of anxiety” says Pandit Dasa, the influential mindfulness expert. In a world where we are ever distracted by screens, thoughts and deadlines; in the middle of the ever-present chaos that needs tending to, Pandit Dasa invites us to “tend to our minds first.” To turn our gaze inward, to focus on our thoughts, and become aware of our breathing as a means to calm our minds.
Pandit’s own quest to find meaning (following personal turmoil) saw him spent 15 years as a hindu monk, during which time, he discovered pure contentment through mindful coexistence, humility, service and the appreciation of the simplest of things: our “own breath”. Drawing on his own experiences, Pandit created the very popular “compassionate leadership” keynotes and conducted mindfulness workshops at a great number of blue chip establishments and well known institutions. He has an elegant and calming stage presence and a genuine passion to create positive change on a macro and micro scale- a breath of fresh air!
