About Agnideva Dasa
Agnideva Dasa was born in Trinidad and Tobago and moved to New York in his formative years. There he met ISKON devotees and became involved in the Krishna Consciousness Movement and later received mantra initiation from Srila Prabhupada.
His study of the Vedic philosophy led him to discover the devotional music of West Bengal, India. In 1972, he began publicly performing bhajan and kirtan in the traditional Bengali style.
He is renowned as an expert devotional singer in ISKCON worldwide.
He served as a Temple President for several years at ISKCON’s Laguna Beach Temple and successfully ran his own restaurants.
Agnideva is now retired and dedicates his time to Srila Prabhupada’s mission.
He returned to Trinidad in 2013 and was appointed President of local headquarters, Sri Sri Radha Gopinatha Mandir, where he goes out with the Temple devotees on Harinama chanting to various locations at least four days a week.
