Pooja Copley

Pooja Copley grew up in Kolkata, India. She completed her Bachelors Degree in Physics and Masters in Management from University of Kolkata, 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 with her twin sons, nine years old at the time, to work as a software engineer. She found Ananda and began practicing meditation on a daily basis. She is a founding member of The Center at Ananda Laurelwood and moved to this ashram in 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.
