Visakha Dasi, the mother of Hari-priya, a first-year Education degree student, here talks about why parents could consider Bhaktivedanta College for their children.
Visakha received an Associate of Applied Science degree with honors from Rochester Institute of Technology and shortly thereafter published her first book, Photomacrography: Art and Techniques. In 1971 she traveled to India, where she met Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, read his Bhagavad-gita As It Is and eventually became his student. As a photographer, she traveled with and photographed Bhaktivedanta Swami and his students in India, Europe and the United States. As a writer, she wrote numerous magazine articles and three books on the Bhagavad-gita. Visakha also assists her husband, John Griesser, in making documentary films. They live with their children and grandchildren in Sharanagati Village, a rural community in British Columbia, Canada, where Visakha is writing a memoir, Bhagavad-gita and One Life Transformed.
