Krishna Dharma has been a teacher and scholar of the ancient Sanskrit writings of India for the past 35 years. He represents an unbroken chain of teachers that extends back for thousands of years to the divine incarnation Lord Krishna. His spiritual guide is His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, a great scholar of the Vedas who translated over sixty volumes of those ancient Sanskrit texts into English, and who started the world famous Hare Krishna Movement. Dharma has written popular retellings of Ramayana, Panchatantra and the Bhagavata Purana (Srimad Bhagavatam). He founded a bhakti-yoga centre in Manchester, England, and is a broadcaster and author of numerous articles presenting the Vedic perspective on our modern dilemmas.
He writes, "I would identify myself primarily as a Vaishnava, which means servant of Vishnu or God, secondarily as a family man and thirdly as a writer. The first role began in 1979 when I came across the Krishna movement and dived headlong into it, as was the style back in those days, when many of us were busy searching for ourselves rather than a worldly career. I can report that I am still looking, but am hopefully closer now than I was then. My second role as family man began in 1985 when I met my good wife Chintamani, with whom I have had three beautiful children, Madhva, Radhika and Janaki. I haven't yet given up the day job, so I have to write part time and this somewhat limits my output. However, I expect to retire shortly and will hopefully be able to produce a few more titles before my appointment with God.
