The recipient of two Gold prizes at the Nautilus Book Awards, B. Simhananda is the author of several photography and spirituality books (under different aliases) and has been a skilled orator on spirituality for more than 35 years. Photography is another of his passions, and has been for many years.
A scholar and poet, music-lover and art collector, this avid traveller of our “earth” captures the essence of his numerous voyages with his photography. B. Simhananda literally means “lion’s roar”, and in a sense his photographs evoke a roar of sensitivity, tenderness and spiritual affirmation both towards and for humanity.
Over the past three years, B. Simhananda has published four books of transformative photography, which invite us to a broader awakening, leading us to see the world from an entirely new perspective. Simhananda’s photography compels us to appreciate the divine touch implicit in every moment and to grasp the subtlety and beauty too often overlooked in life.

He resides in the region of Montreal, Canada. Concurrently, in his private life, he lives near Montreal, Canada, and he is in process of adopting a second Tibetan child with his wonderful and devoted wife, Klaire
