Pandit Dasa, the child of Indian immigrants, grew up in America. He joined a monastery in 1999, hoping to find clarity and purpose in a simpler life. He spent 15 years living as a monk in New York, before deciding he wanted to leave the monastic order to take his teachings into the corporate world to help create happier, more fulfilling work environments. He recommends a regular practice of trying to distance ourselves from negative thoughts and emotions. He says: “Take time out in your day and sit with your eyes closed, take deep breaths, and become aware of what is happening in our minds. Observe your emotions and negative thoughts, distance yourself from them, and then breathe them out.”
