The true rewards of meditation come not at the start, but rather much later. Learn a step-by-step process to meditation which will help you sustain your practice. This is the same simple, practical and effective method Dandapani learned from his guru at the monastery where he lived as a monk. Among the lessons Dandapani teaches: how to concentrate; how to set up a meditation space; how to sit and breathe in meditation; how to define your meditation goal; and how to harness, direct and concentrate energy within you. One of the by-products of these lessons is mindfulness because mindfulness comes from a concentrated mind. From your meditation practice, you will be more present, creative and intuitive, and you will bring forth spiritual insights from deep within.


The second installment of Unwavering Focus is a deep dive into the study of the mind. As Dandapani often says, ”The mind is the most powerful tool we have, yet most of us have never been taught how it works and have never been trained on how to use it properly.” In Part 2, Dandapani teaches three states of mind: how to work with unresolved emotional experiences that are buried in the subconscious and dictate how we act and react; how to cultivate intuition and overcome fear, worry, anxiety and stress; and how to create positive patterns in the subconscious that can assist us in living the habits we want to cultivate.


Dandapani is a Hindu priest, speaker on self-development and an entrepreneur. Of Sri Lankan ancestry, he grew up in Australia and after graduating university with a degree in Electrical Engineering he left it all behind to become a Hindu monk under the guidance of one of Hinduism’s foremost spiritual leaders of our time, Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. For 10 years he lived a life of serious personal discipline and training at his guru’s cloistered monastery in Hawaii.

When his vows expired seven years ago he chose to venture out into the world on his own. He made New York City his new home, determined to live and practice himself everything he teaches in the most invigorating and challenging city in the world. He works with a variety of individuals, companies, and organizations around the world conducting training through workshops, retreats and exclusive coaching circles.

Approachable, practical and funny, he has a unique ability to simplify the understanding of the mind, make spiritual tools practically applicable in everyday life, create systematic approaches to self-development that allows for sustainable change and relate what he teaches to everyday life. All this and more make him a much sought-after speaker and coach on self-development.
