About Siddhanta Das
Siddhanta das first came in contact with Prabhupada’s teachings and ISKCON in 1970 when he worked as a film editor in Dallas, Texas. He was initiated as Prabhupada’s disciple in 1974 in Denver, Colorado, and served there as a SKP leader, Bhakta leader, and University and High School lecturer. In 1978 he moved to Los Angeles, California, and became the co-producer and editor for ISKCON Television producing such classics as “The Acharya” series, “The Ramayana,” “Krishna Puppet Shows,” and the notable documentaries “Coming Back-Reincarnation in America”, “Healthy, Wealthy & Wise” and “Cooking with Kurma”. For the last 31 years, he has been going around the world collecting oral histories from Srila Prabhupada’s direct disciples about their time with His Divine Grace and the lessons they learned while in his association. This project is known as “Memories Anecdotes of a Modern-Day Saint” as seen on eighty-seven videos totaling over 1,300 hours of Prabhupada nectar. These transcendental anecdotes have also now been transcribed into five 400 page books which are now being translated into Russian and Spanish.
