Born in Bangalore and educated in Chennai, Shri Dushyant is a graduate in Chemical Engineering and a postgraduate in Chemistry from the Birla Institute of Technology & Science (Pilani). He is currently employed at Tata Consultancy Services.
His sound knowledge of the ancient scriptures, Hindu philosophy and related subjects make him a regular speaker on several leading television channels.
He has had a combined audience of more than 1 million at his 700 discourses delivered in 23 cities across the world. Known for his musical prowess and humour, he has brought solace to a cross-section of communities.
Established about four years ago by a group of devotees in Auckland, ABSS is committed to respecting cultural diversity and encouraging people to follow the Hindu religion, its practices and the rich Vedic heritage of India.
“We celebrate Hindu festivals on such dates and times as they fall as prescribed by the Hindu scriptures and rites. We are also committed to inviting theologians, Bhajan and spiritual singers to give lectures on render songs on Hinduism,” they said.
