Dambara has practiced meditation for 27 years, learning it from Ananda and never leaving. He loves making these teachings accessible in a way that’s lighthearted, joyful and reassuring. He also loves singing Swami Kriyananda’s delightful repertoire of music, plus encouraging others how to play Ananda chants and songs (see OGodBeautiful.com).

After several years serving at Ananda Portland, he and his wife Manisha Holm are now living at Ananda Farms in Camano Island, WA.
