Sri Vijay Kapoor took Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati as his guru at a family camp the very first year Swamiji came to the US. Later, Sri Kapoor was one of the pioneers to establish the three-year course taught by Pujya Swamiji in Piercy, California, started in 1979. To attend this course, he left his job as a Marketing Manager for the Hewlett-Packard Company and moved his entire family to live in Piercy. Pujya Swamiji asked Sri Kapoor to be the Secretary for the Arsha Vidya Pitham at its inception, and he is still serving in that capacity today.
After his graduation from the Piercy course in 1982, Sri Kapoor resumed his work at HP, and also started teaching Vedanta in the San Francisco Bay Area. He took early retirement in the year 2000 to devote his time to the study and teaching of Vedanta and Sanskrit. Sri Kapoor established the Arsha Vidya Center (AVC), whose goal is to promote Pujya Swamiji's teachings in the local area. Toward that goal, both Swami Viditatmananda and Swami Tattvavidananda have been visiting the Bay Area regularly for talks, classes and retreats. Sri Kapoor currently teaches two Vedanta classes per week to about 50 students, two Sanskrit classes per week and has established four Gita Home Study groups in the area.
