the man behind bhaktifest
Have you ever wondered what the story is behind the largest Kirtan and Yoga festival in our country? Founder of Bhaktifest, Sridhar Steven Silberfein, has been on a personal spiritual quest for over thirty years, while quite handily blending a life as a pioneer businessman. In 1970 he established the first health food store in Southern California, The Food Chakra, in Topanga Canyon and followed with Desert Essence, a skin care company that brought quality natural products with jojoba and tea tree oil to America for the first time. He went on to co-found the Triloka recording label which helped to launch the careers of today’s most popular kirtan artists such as Krishna Das and Jai Uttal.
