Here’s What Prompted Gaur Gopal Das To Become A Monk | Curly Tales

Feeling lost in life? In desperate need of some guidance? Then you should go and watch the latest episode of Curly Tales Sunday Brunch. In this instalment of the series, we got spiritual. Our guest was the wise and knowledgeable Guruji Gaur Gopal Das. Our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani had a nice long conversation with the wiseman about a lot of things. He also revealed to us why he actually chose to be a monk. 

What Prompted Gaur Gopal Das To Become A Monk?

In case you did not know, Gaur Gopal Das has done engineering and used to work in a corporate job before he decided to leave it all behind and become a monk. When asked what was his motivation behind the decision, he said that the life of a monk had always been a calling for him.

He told us that he has always placed a great emphasis on his inner voice. When he worked at his corporate office, he was good at what he did but it did not satisfy his soul. He wanted to do something that would fulfil him. So he decided to leave it all behind and pursue monkhood. He thought that living for others is where his heart truly lies and hence, he went in that direction.

On each episode of Sunday Brunch, we try to get our guests as lavish a spread as we possibly can, but this week, we had to go in the other direction. Since Gaur Gopal Das is a monk, his diet is as austere as it can get. But even though the food was a bit simpler than what we’re used to, the conversations remained interesting as always.

He discussed many things from his life and even cracked a joke or two to prove that he really is a cool monk. He also revealed that his preferred way of exercising is, not yoga, as you would expect from someone like him, but weight-lifting. He also talked about his dressing why he prefers to wear saffron.
