  • 2022 The Power of Unwavering Focus
Dandapani is a Hindu priest, entrepreneur and a former monk of 10 years. After graduating university with a degree in Electrical Engineering he left it all behind to become an ordained Hindu monk under the guidance of one of Hinduism’s foremost spiritual leaders of our time, Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. For 10 years he lived a life of serious personal discipline and training at his guru’s cloistered monastery in Hawaii. When his vows expired, he chose to venture out into the world making New York City his home. He works with entrepreneurs and some of the top athletes in the world in helping them understand and leverage their mind so that they can be the best at what they do. He does this by empowering them with tools and teachings that have been used by Hindu monks of his tradition for thousands of years. Among his clients are companies such as Fortress Investment Group, ICONIQ, McKinsey, American Express, Bloomberg LP, Sprinklr, Nike, Ribbit Capital, Red Ventures, and more. His book, The Power of Unwavering Focus, published by Portfolio and Penguin Random House is being translated into 23 languages. And his TEDx talk has over 6.9 million views. He currently lives in Nosara, Costa Rica, where he and his wife are passionately creating a 33-acre Hindu spiritual sanctuary and botanical gardens to further their mission.
