Founder of VASA and travel guide Jeffrey Armstrong

Jeffrey Armstrong

Jeffrey Armstrong, (spiritual name, Kavindra Rishi), is a visionary motivational speaker, spiritual teacher, and the founder of VASA (Vedic Academy of Sciences & Arts.) He is a teacher and initiate of the Vedic wisdom including Vedanta, Raja Yoga, Tantra, and Mantra practices and is widely recognized as one of the leading experts in these areas. Jeffrey is also an award-winning poet and bestselling author of numerous books, including his recent book, Spiritual Teachings of the Avatar: Ancient Wisdom for a New World, published by Beyond Words/Simon & Schuster, and is currently working on a new translation of India’s famous text, The Bhagavad Gita – The Secret Teachings of the Ultimate Avatar and a book on Sanskrit and English Etymology.

Jeffrey Armstrong is a former Silicon Valley Executive and motivational speaker to Fortune 500 companies, who is now known as ‘the Western Master of Eastern Wisdom’. Trained as a Monk in the traditional way for 5 years, Jeffrey is also a best-selling author & award-winning poet, who has studied & taught ancient Eastern philosophy for over 40 years. Grounded in daily spiritual practice, his innovative fusion of Western technology and Eastern wisdom has been highly sought after by CEO’s, celebrities, youth groups and people desiring to integrate systematized universal spiritual values into their healthy lifestyles.

Jeffrey was selected by Hindu leaders from around the world to act as a media spokesperson for the Hindu Dharma and culture. Appointed as the Vice President and Media and Communications Director for both the Vedic Friends Association (VFA) and the Hindu Collective Initiative for North America (HCI-NA), Jeffrey travels internationally speaking to corporations, academic conferences, yoga studios, temples and community groups.

For the last 15 years he has travelled to India to teach and associate with the beauty and timeless wisdom of India. Sponsors in India have sent him across the country to inspire people about the greatness and global significance of their culture. He has been welcomed in ashrams, by corporations, at temples, in universities, within civic groups, across villages, by gurus, as well as scholars, and is considered one of the most charismatic and knowledgeable spokespersons for the Vedic/Hindu culture speaking in English today. 

While in India serving the cause of restoring Her culture, Jeffrey connects with and learns from the scholars, touches the feet of holy persons, savours the wonderful food (especially home cooked meals), raids bookstores and libraries to unearth more jewels of sacred lore, and basks in the profound culture surrounded by the millions of humble and caring souls who populate every corner of Mother India. The Times of India said of him in a well-known article, "He looks like a typical American until he opens his mouth."
