Getting to know Dandapani (Part 1)

I’ve just launched a new series of audio and video talks called “Conversations on the Spiritual Path”. When I shared with a friend of mine, Stacey Green, that I was about to do this she said that the first conversation should be about me. People should get to know me and who I am.

2. One of my favorite things about you, is I know you practice what you preach. When’s the last time you had a teachable moment in your own life and struggled with your own teachings?
