Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya was born in New York City. He is a European-American of Italian and Spanish heritage. He is widely recognized as one of the world’s most respected and qualified Dharma teachers.

Acharyaji began his personal spiritual journey over 40 years ago at the tender age of ten when he read the Bhagavad-Gita for the very first time. He coupled his decades of intense spiritual practice and study with advanced academic achievements, earning a B.A. in philosophy from Loyola University Chicago, as well as an M.A. and Ph.D. in religious studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Explaining to his doctoral advisor that “I don’t want to just study the history of religion . . . I want to make religious history,” Acharyaji eventually left academia to devote himself exclusively to spiritual teaching and to the restoration of the great tradition of Sanatana Dharma.

Today, Sri Acharyaji occupies his full time teaching Dharma spirituality to large audiences of Western students. In addition to leading classes, seminars and lecturing widely on Sanatana Dharma, Sri Acharyaji is a renowned author, as well as a personal spiritual guide (guru) to a rapidly increasing following of enthusiastic students. His nine published books include The Dharma Manifesto: A New Vision for Global Transformation, which was just published by the European New Right publisher Arktos Media.

    I don’t understand this fascination of some NSs/WNs for India: Indians are as part of the White Genocide crowd as Negroes. Borrowing ideology or theology from them won’t win them over to us. Indians are NON-WHITES, just like JEWS siding with them for the sake of Islamophobia or even Christophobia won’t save our race from extinction.

      The root of it is that elements of our own ancient tradition were kept alive in India but died out in Europe due to Christianity. But the native genius of the Indians has also added much a value as well. It is not an issue of “winning over” Indians.

    Brilliant interview.
    It would be good to have another interview with him in the future, to get more into the details of defense against aggressions to the nation (above all when one considers ‘inner’ menaces such as supremacist jews and other cohesive groups), greed and the legitimacy to get rich, is it Ok with Dharmism to see white countries for whites only? (would it be Ok with Dharmism to expel gypsies from Europe, for instance?), etc. And then there’s the connection with European paganism. It would be great to get more into the details in this regard.
    Anyway, good to see it’s not passive stuff.
    And I wonder if one can fall into more than just one psycho-physical category, and have for instance combatant, merchant and spiritual-leading qualities at the same time.
    As said, very nice podcast.

    A thought provoking guest. It makes me happy to hear one if our own White people talking about the spiritual. IT would be great of Stark if and CC hosted a debate between Fr. Matthew Johnson and Sri Acharya. Thats’s an idea for you, there might even be a fair amount of conflict for the audience to enjoy in just such an exchange. Or better yet get Fr.Johnson, Archarta, the author of Vectors if the Initiation, and the Anglican chap you interviewed acfew weeks back Stark.

    Puts me at sound mind to hear that ancient Aryan religion in Evropa is consanguine with the Vedic tradition.

    I have a few questions for Archarya. On which side of the Abrahamic vs Dharmic divide does zoroastrianism magaism fall. If Zoarastrianism is within the abrahamic tradition it appropriarte that it was consumed by a fellow Abrahamic conflict religion I.E. muhammadanism. Do you reckon reckon that Indian Vedic tradition was mostly destoyed by the Musolmen occupation of the subcontinent and finished off for good by the Anglicans? Or is it that the racial lines to our ancient Aryan ancestirs just runs thinner in the mud of South Asia

    Good interview.

    I wish the interviewer had asked the man his take on the fascist movements. Were they “Dharma”-oriented? (e.g. Himmler actually carried the Bhagavad Ghita at all times, i’ve read.) The interviewee was clear that communism and capitalism were anti-Dharma, but fascism was not touched on.

    What a great interview. I guess I will have to get that book now. I do have The Shakti Principle which I have not read yet. I am always wondering just where women fit in, in all these ideas.
    Happy New Year. It’s the new moon tonight — a new beginning.
