About the Author

I first heard of Bhagavad-gita when I was trekking with my then boyfriend (now husband) John in the Himalayas in the summer of '71. We were at the snow line, 10,000 feet at that time of year, and decided to spend a few restful days in an abandoned cowshed. From deep inside his backpack John pulled out a blue paperback with a line drawing of a regal, four-armed person on the cover. During our stay, I sat for hours surrounded by towering snowy peaks in crystal-clear air, with no other humans around, trying to read this early edition of Bhagavad-gita As It Is, by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. I understood little but I was intrigued. The idea of tolerating dualities and remaining equipoised in their midst enticed me, as did the concept of an eternal spiritual presence within all living beings. And the Gita opened me to the thought that I could improve my character as well as the quality of my life through knowledge. Over the years, as I continued studying Bhagavad-gita and practicing its precepts, my respect for its wisdom, relevance, and comprehensiveness grew. Gradually Bhagavad-gita revolutionized my life. In 1996 I wrote and illustrated a Bhagavad-gita for children, Our Most Dear Friend, and then did one for young adults: Bhagavad-gita: A Photographic Essay, a visual guide to the world's greatest spiritual dialog. Recently I completed a third exploration, on how to apply the teachings of Bhagavad-gita to our daily lives: Harmony and the Bhagavad-gita: Lessons from a Life-Changing Move to the Wilderness. *********** Since her first trip to India in 1971 (when she was 21), Visakha's life has never been the same. She's tried to explain what happened to her -- and what's continuing to happen -- in numerous magazine articles as well as four books, most recently a memoir, Five Years, Eleven Months and a lifetime of unexpected love. Besides writing articles and books, Visakha also assists her husband, John Griesser, in making documentary films. The couple will soon be releasing a 90-minute biopic, Hare Krishna, the Mantra, the Movement, and the Swami who started it all -- coming to a theater near you! They have two beautiful daughters and are based in both British Columbia and Florida, but mostly Florida.
