17 Years of Friendship

17 Years of Friendship

Every year, from the past 17 years, we have had the pleasure of having Peter Burwash visit our schools. A former successful tennis player, he has been a long time supporter of FFLV.

On this visit he recalled how he once sat in a small office in Vrindavan with his daughter Kim, Niraj and Rupa discussing about the program and it is such a pleasure for him to see how it has grown today. 

“It is absolutely wonderful to see the incredible effort and the kind of people the project has attracted” : Peter

His daughter Kimberly has been to Vrindavan eight times and Skyler have been here five times. They love coming to Vrindavan and call Rupa the “Male Mother Teresa”.

This year Peter celebrated the 42nd anniversary of his company Peter Burwash International (PBI) with the children of Sandipani Muni School. The guests played tennis with the school kids. The girls presented some beautiful performances and everyone had a great time.

For over 30 years, Peter Burwash has been a highly sought-after speaker for global companies. Every year he visits Vrindavan, he makes sure to take out time and give a talk to the staff and teachers of FFLV. His talks are really insightful and have helped us greatly on both personal and professional fronts.

Peter is a United States Professional Tennis Association Master Professional and has coached many tennis players, including Venus Williams and Serena Williams. During his career, Peter has both played and coached in 134 countries. Burwash is the author of 10 books on a variety of topics.  He currently tours the World giving motivational speeches.
