Select Testimonials

Recently we were offered the opportunity to have Pandit come to our Cadillac HQ in Soho and lead our group through a 30 minute (invaluable introduction) to meditation. At the end of the session the group was in agreement; Pandit guided us through a relaxing and ultimately restorative meditation. In fact, we didn't want it to be over! Thank you again Pandit - hope to have you back again soon!


Pandit addressed some of the science first... He did an excellent job sharing information and techniques to reduce stress and become happier and more productive both personally and professionally.


Pandit was an engaging and interesting speaker with an extremely timely and relevant topic for today's workplace. We particularly enjoyed the exercise he did, he had everyone in a large room practicing mindfulness!


Pandit is a very engaging speaker and has provided three sessions on mindfulness to DTCC for the Total Rewards team, our global managing director population, and our U.S. employees. In addition to providing a guided mindfulness meditation, Pandit spoke about his unique background, how mindfulness ties in with one's overall wellbeing, and the benefits mindfulness can bring to one's everyday life, including experiences in the workplace. Our employees have provided positive feedback on these sessions, and we are excited to keep working with Pandit as we continue to prioritize our employees' wellbeing through our benefits offerings.

He was amazing! I think it would be a great benefit to have him back more often. The session really lowered my stress level. Thank you for bringing him in.


I first met Pandit when he came to speak at the Royal Bank of Canada offices in Manhattan. He immediately captured everyone's attention by sharing how he lived as monk for 15 years in New York and now post-monk life, he speaks to corporations on the science and practices of mindfulness. His talk was personable, humorous and research based. His content on how mindfulness and meditation could lower stress and boost productivity was extremely relevant and practical for me and my colleagues who work on the trading floor. We loved his talk so much that we've had him back for an additional two sessions. During his most recent visit, Pandit's content was geared towards our leaders and Managing Directors. His messages on leading by example, appreciating your co-workers, managing emotions, communicating with compassion and leading with humility really resonated with our leadership. We have benefited tremendously by these presentations and look forward to an on-going partnership with Pandit.

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend with great enthusiasm Pandit Dasa for speaking engagements related to mindful leadership. I had the distinct pleasure of working with Pandit during the Arkansas Society for Human Resource Management Conference 2017. As a keynote speaker at the event, he provided insightful, expert leadership content which was extremely well received. Pandit has lived as the “Urban Monk” (thus the title of his book). I am impressed by his genuine desire to change lives in a positive manner. His delivery is strong and heartfelt, and it is apparent that he lives what he teaches. His positive personal brand will influence his audience.


Pandit Dasa was a refreshing change in pace at The World Bank Group's HR conference. He addressed the HR community and gave a practical talk on "Becoming the Change You Wish to See" where he encouraged the audience to reflect on their motivations for leading, to communicate with compassion and appreciate and celebrate each others' success. The consensus was that Pandit's message could benefit the other divisions within The World Bank Group. We were thrilled to partner with him for a second time and look forward to introducing him and his message to the broader World Bank community in the future.

Pandit is someone who lives what he teaches and that really comes through in his genuine style and approach. I would highly recommend him as a speaker and advisor to other non-profits and companies.
