Pravrajika Krishnaprana


Pravrajika Krishnaprana  Met Swa­mi Prab­ha­vanan­da in San­ta Bar­bara in 1968, where she was vaca­tion­ing. Had just fin­ished a teach­ing job in Hawaii and was look­ing for a sun­nier cli­mate than Seat­tle, where she was raised. Shen then returned to the North­west and met Swa­mi Vividis­hanan­da and Swa­mi Ranganathananda.
Moved to San­ta Bar­bara in 1969, lived there and vol­un­teered at the cen­ter, learn­ing the phi­los­o­phy from Swa­mi Prab­ha­vanan­da and the nuns in residence.
Moved into the con­vent in 1972, was priv­i­leged to be able to serve Swa­mi Prab­ha­vanan­da until his passing.
Had Brah­macharya and San­nyas from Swa­mi Ash­e­sanan­da and have lived in the San­ta Bar­bara Con­vent my entire monas­tic life.
