President

Rev. Bodhinatha Veylan

BIO

Born in Berkeley, California, on October 15, 1942, Bodhinatha began studying Vedanta and meditation in 1960, soon developing a deep interest in monastic life. He met Gurudeva at the Mountain Desert Monastery in September of 1964 in Virginia City, Nevada, while still in school. At this first meeting he stated his desire to realize God. Gurudeva brought him close quickly by having him stay in the San Francisco monastery on weekends. When school was completed in June, 1965, Bodhinatha moved full time into the monastery and took his sadhaka vows a few months later in August at age 22.

Bodhinatha managed Gurudeva's Master Course Correspondence Study from the Nevada monastery in the late 60s, guiding hundreds of students in their initial explorations of yoga, meditation, mysticism and Hindu metaphysics. He was in the initial group of four monks who moved with Gurudeva to Kauai to establish Kauai Aadheenam in February, 1970. Later that year, Gurudeva took him to Sri Lanka and introduced him to the Jaffna Saivite culture and worship. He worked closely with Gurudeva from 1970 to the present as Vice President of Gurudeva's several nonprofit corporations and one of the stewards guiding the life of the monks, their activities, publications and projects, responsible directly for all financial, legal and administrative matters.
