A transformational journey from a Personal Trainer to living a life as a Monk with Padmalocan Das

Padmalocan Das, born Owen Paul Maher is a former personal trainer/painter who grew up on the Central Coast, NSW, Australia. He now lives his life as monk within Hare Krishna movement known as Gaudiya Vaishnavism. He has dedicated his life to serving God and all living entities. Padmalocan Das would often question reality growing up and would always pray to God for answers. By the age of 20 he had become more & more entangled within the world, and followed the crowd into mundane activities and behaviour. But deep within he always had a longing for truth. It was just a matter of time before this longing would burst to the surface. He remembers one day having a massive rush of realisations. And it was these realisations which lead him to where he is today, these realisations caused him to question everything. From that day the search for truth, wisdom, happiness and true love begin. From that day the search for God began.
