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.
