Varsana Staszak (26) from Los Angeles, California, is the daughter of Lalitanatha Dasa and Vaikuntha Murti Dasi, two of Srila Prabhupadaï¿½s disciples. She has a BA in English and French.
“I came to the College to study Krishna consciousness in a structured academic environment, among other serious devotees. I came to deepen my understanding and to become more knowledgeable, expert, and confident in the ways I present Krishna consciousness to others. Krishna has been kind to let me gain spiritual realizations, to grow internally, and to become more loving toward the devotees.
So far, my experience at the College has amazed me: I am gaining practical skills for teaching and preaching from courses such as Teacher Training; I am learning more about myself from courses like Truth and Dharma, and I gain so much appreciation for Srila Prabhupada from our academic courses. I have really been inspired to live the life of a devotee and to always keep learning and serving. I encourage others to take advantage of the dynamic education offered at Bhaktivedanta College.”
