He was the lead singer and songwriter of two internationally-acclaimed bands that toured the world in the punk/hardcore music community. Although the music was abrasive, it was filled with positive uplifting and spiritual lyrics that transformed tens of thousands of fans' lives espousing vegetarianism, karma, positive mental attitude and a drug-free life. Considered a teacher's teacher, Raghunath is a gifted speaker and educator of self-transformation & spirituality. He travels internationally, leads teacher trainings, annual sold-out pilgrimages to India, and has been living the life of a yogi for 28 years. At 22 he went to India and lived in a Krishna Bhakti ashram as a monk. He studied deeply sacred literature, music, cooking and deeper facets of yogic culture. Presently, he's married with 5 children and is co-creating Supersoul Farm, an educational center in Canaan NY, with his wife Brij Cappo.
