My friend, Gadadhara Pandit Dasa, the Hindu Chaplain at Columbia University was invited to speak at TEDx. In his talk, Pandit shares with us his riches to rags life story, which eventually led him to the Bhagavad Gita and to monkhood. As the Hindu Chaplain at Columbia, he organizes the ever popular vegetarian cooking classes. Not only do the students learn how to cook a delicious meal, but they leave with their bellies full as well.
