VIDYA DEEPA GUPTA
Vidya Deepa Gupta is a Vedika Certified Ayurveda Health Educator who started studying with Acharya Shunya in 2012. She assists Lakshmi Tracy Cunningham with organizing and executing all aspects of Vedika’s Sangha Community gatherings. She is also part of the A/V team, writes for the Hamsa Magazine and leads the Hamsa Dhwani, a special mantra chanting group call as part of Vedika’s Spiritual Studies Program.
Outside Vedika, Vidya works as a software engineer with Nokia. She has a bachelor degree in electronics from Delhi University and masters degrees in Information and Communication Sciences from Delhi University and in Computer Science from North Carolina State University.
Vidya naturally connects with Seva at Vedika as she was born and raised in a culture where taking care of people, animals and plants around her was a way of life.
She feels grateful to Acharya Shunya’s teachings for opening a door to discovering who she is. She feels that Acharya Shunya is true to the divine voice of the Vedic Scriptures. Volunteering at Vedika is a way for Vidya to serve her Guru, lineage and the knowledge that comes through Acharya Shunya, and an opportunity to apply what she learns, which makes volunteering a teaching in itself.
