Brahmacharini Stuti Chaitanya
Brahmacharini Stuti Chaitanya has been exposed to scriptural teaching since her formative years. Her family actively participated in the spiritual engagements at the local community Mandir, and frequently conducted satsaṅga-s throughout the country, studying Rāmacaritamānasa and Śrīmad Bhagavad Gītā among others.
When  Swāmi Prakāśānandajī (then Brahmacāri Prem Caitanyajī) was posted to Trinidad, Stutijī and her family were introduced to Chinmaya Mission. In 2014, her father completed the Vedānta Course under the tutelage of Swāmi Prakāśānandajī. Inspired, Stutijī decided to dedicate her life to the study of Vedānta.Having graduated from the Sir Hugh Wooding Law School in 2017, she joined the 17th Vedānta Course at Sāndeepany Sādhanālaya, Mumbai under the guidance of Pūjya Swāmi Swaroopānandajī and the tutelage of Swāmi Bodhātmānandajī.She has been posted to Chinmaya Mission Columbus, OH by Pūjya Swāmi Swaroopānandajī.
