Vijay Gupta has been a student and teacher of Sanskrit for many years. Although he first learned Sanskrit in middle school in India, his interest in the language was renewed when he started reading Bhagvad Gita with his wife and children. Subsequently, he learned Sanskrit from Mr. Vijay Kapoor, a Vedanta teacher at Arsha Vidya Center (AVC) in bay area. At AVC, he also taught Introductory Sanskrit to Vedanta students. Today, Mr. Gupta continues to grow his knowledge of Sanskrit through courses at the University of California, Berkeley.
Sanskrit has played a central role in the development of the theory and practice of Ayurveda. At Vedika Global, Mr. Gupta enjoys teaching Sanskrit while availing himself of the unique opportunity to learn Ayurveda at the same time. He is actively supported in this endeavor by his wife, Manju, who is also a keen student of Sanskrit and Ayurveda.
