VividLife Radio’s Ed and Deb Shapiro welcome pioneering businessman Sridhar Silberfein, to discuss Yoga’s Answer to Woodstock Festival: Bhaktifest
Sridhar Steven Silberfein has been on a spiritual quest for over thirty years, while being a pioneering businessman. He founded Desert Essence, the skin care company, and co-founded the Triloka recording label that launched artists such as Krishna Das and Jai Uttal. His health food store, The Food Chakra, had a yoga studio upstairs. This led to The Center for Spiritual Studies (CSS), where Sridhar hosted many eminent teachers, such as Swami Muktananda, Kalu Rimpoche and Ammachi, the “Hugging Saint”. He published the first book on Swami Muktananda called Baba in America. He also produced the docudrama River of Love on the life of Ammachi. In 1969, Sridhar brought Swami Satchidananda to Woodstock, when he committed himself to producing the spiritual equivalent of Woodstock, which is now: Bhakti Fest, Shakti Fest, and Bhakti Fest Midwest. When asked about the moments where he feels his best, he has been known to comment, “When I get a chance to clean the pots in the kitchen.”
It's good to talk.
