Braja Sorensen is an Australian who has been living in West Bengal for the last 20 years.
It was in the early 90s when Braja first visited India.
The country captivated her.
A few years, in 1997, after having worked in television, tourism, and publishing in Australia, London, and the U.S, Braja returned to India to make it her home.
In 2000, she met her Swedish husband and the duo has never looked back. Braja has spent over 20 years living in Mayapur, West Bengal, on the banks of river Ganges, which is also known as the headquarters of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, more commonly known by the acronym ISKCON.
“The best place for spirituality was India,” she says.
In the last two decades, Braja has read and adapted the learnings of the Bhagavad Gita.
“The Gita is basically the owners manual for the human body, how our mind works and how can one be in sync with it,” she says.
She firmly believes the 5,000-year-old teachings of the Bhagwat Gita hold true in today’s times.
