Aruddha Devi Dasi

Aruddha Devi Dasi and her husband Anantarupa Dasa are both disciples of H.H. Gopal Krishna Goswami. They began practicing Krishna consciousness in Chicago in the early 1980s, and started the ISKCON Temple in Boise, USA, in 1986 as a small weekly program in their home. Now twenty years later there is a beautiful mid-size Vedic temple for Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Bankebihari. Aruddha and Anantarupa homeschooled their children and ran the Govinda's restaurant in Boise for six years. Her older son, Radhika Raman Das (Dr. Ravi Gupta), has a PhD in Hinduism from Oxford University in England, and a BA in Mathematics and Philosophy from Boise State University. He also wrote the “India's Heritage” column for Back to Godhead for several years. He holds the Charles Redd Chair of Religious Studies at Utah State University, and his first book, The Caitanya Vaishnava Vedanta of Jiva Goswami, has been published by Routledge, a reputable academic press and will go into reprint with Recensia Press. Gopal Hari Das (Gopal Gupta) holds a PhD in Science and Religion at Oxford University. He completed a Bachelors and Masters degree in Electrical Engineering with highest honors from Boise State University. Currently, Aruddha travels to temples around the world to deliver seminars on Krishna conscious homeschooling. She runs a Yahoo group for devotee parents interested in homeschooling, as well as a Bhagavatam study group for children.
