The Author

After graduating from University College London (UCL), S.B. Keshava Swami became a 21-year-old monk and continues that journey over two decades later. Having studied ancient Sanskrit texts for over 25 years, he has gone on to author 10 books and design over 50 courses, empowering his audiences to apply ancient insights to upgrade relationships, discover purpose, overcome inner blocks, and craft well-being on all levels.
Keshava Swami’s social media presence and online teaching platforms have introduced tens of thousands of people to eastern wisdom. In 2022, he co-founded Think Gita (www.thinkgita.org), which is now the fastest-growing online portal for learning the Bhagavad-gita in a powerful, exciting and life-changing way.
Nowadays he is a globe-trotter, teaching in eminent academic institutions, Fortune 500 companies, governmental organisations and spiritual communities. He remains a thought leader on the cutting edge, inspired to share wisdom that breathes – not just book knowledge, but deep spiritual insights that transform character and consciousness.
The Big Questions
Growing up in the London suburbs, Keshava Swami gravitated towards simplicity, minimalism and solitude. The usual measures of success – titles, achievements, status symbols and material security – never moved his heart. Aged 15, he began a spiritual search, leading him to the Bhagavad-gita, the legendary book of Sanskrit wisdom.
Disconnect to Connect
After graduating from UCL (University College London) with a BSc in Information Management, he travelled to India on a spiritual quest. Soon after, aged 21, he adopted monastic life at Bhaktivedanta Manor, the UK Headquarters of ISKCON. “Hearing of saints and sages who turned away from everything to selflessly serve the world spoke to my heart and captured my imagination” Keshava Swami says. “I guess I was being drawn towards my dharma – my calling, my purpose – what I was wired for.”
Wisdom that Breathes
For over 25 years, Keshava Swami has studied numerous Sanskrit texts, considering how to proliferate spiritual wisdom in a world that is suffocating from materialism. He has authored 10 books and designed over 50 courses, empowering his audiences to apply ancient insights to upgrade relationships, discover purpose, overcome inner blocks, and craft well-being on all levels.
Spiritual Entrepreneurship
Though monks live in sacred space, they also reach out to the populace, making spirituality relevant in the ‘real world.’ Keshava Swami’s social media presence and online teaching platforms have introduced tens of thousands of people to eastern wisdom. In 2022, he co-founded Think Gita (www.thinkgita.org), which is now the fastest-growing online portal for learning the Bhagavad-gita in a powerful, exciting and life-changing way.
Changing the World through Wisdom
In 2022, after deep contemplation, soul-searching and prayer, Keshava Swami accepted life-long vows of renunciation and was awarded the highest order of monasticism. Nowadays he is a globe-trotter, teaching in eminent academic institutions, Fortune 500 companies, governmental organisations and spiritual communities. He remains a thought leader on the cutting edge, inspired to share wisdom that breathes – not just book knowledge, but deep spiritual insights that transform character and consciousness.
