Pooja Copley

Pooja Copley grew up in Calcutta India. She did her Bachelors Degree in Physics and Masters in Management from University of Calcutta India. She felt insecure and disappointed by the temporary nature of career, relationships and human feelings. She started an active meditation practice in 2005 and went to Sarada Mission in India (part of the Ramakrishna Mission ashrams). She came to America to work as a Software Engineer with her twin sons, nine years old at the time. Here she found Ananda and began practicing meditation on a daily basis. She is a founding member of Ananda Laurelwood and moved to this Ashram on May 2011. Pooja currently works as a software engineer and says her only goal in life is to become a simple humble devotee. The Bhagavad Gita has been a part of her life since childhood when her Grandfather would chant the slokas with her as a small child.
