Brahmachari Soham Chaitanya was born in a spiritual family devoted to Chinmaya Mission. The opportunity to listen to satsangs from various Swamins and Brahmacharins introduced him to spirituality from a very young age. An engineer by background, Soham ji worked as a Research Engineer in Colorado after graduating with a Masters degree from the University of California Berkeley.
Listening to the Bhagavad Gita discourses by Poojya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaj i and Ramayana discourses by Poojya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda ji brought him to Sandeepany Sadhanalaya in Mumbai. He completed the 17th Vedanta Course under the guidance of Poojya Swami Swaroopananda ji and under the tutelage of Poojya Swami Bodhatmananda ji.
Prior to joining Sandeepany in 2017, Soham ji served at Chinmaya Mission centers in San Jose, CA and Los Angeles, CA for five years, facilitating youth and adult study groups.
Soham ji loves playing the harmonium, singing bhajans and dwelling on the scriptures which talk about the nature of happiness.
