About the Author:
Nandini Kapadia is a long-time seeker whose interest in spirituality was ignited at a young age. In her quest to understand the nature of the Self, Nandini has spent most of her life acquiring knowledge from spiritual masters. In particular, she was deeply impacted by the teachings of Ramana Maharshi of Tiruvannamalai. In 2013, she met Sabyasachi Guha, who was closely associated with thinker-philosopher U.G. Krishnamurti. Her connection with Guha was transformative, compelling her to journal the struggles she faced and the lessons life delivers to the spiritually sentient. That was the genesis of her first book, Life Finds Its Way: Reflections on Reality with Sabyasachi Guha (Zen Publications, 2019).
Nandini, a Mumbai native, earned her Master’s degree in English Literature from the University of Mumbai. After that, she embarked on a career in journalism and worked as a staff editor for various new outlets. In 1995, she moved to the United States, where she continued to work as a freelance editor. After living abroad for twenty-five years, she decided to return to her homeland. She now resides in New Delhi and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
