From Academic Kids

David Frawley (Sanskrit: वामदेव शास्‍त्री) (born 1950) is one of the few Westerners to be recognized by a major Hindu sect in India as a Vedacharya or teacher of the ancient wisdom. In 1991, under the auspices of the Hindu teacher Avadhuta Shastri, he was named Vamadeva Shastri, after the great Vedic Rishi Vamadeva. In 1995 he was given the title of Pandit along with the Brahmachari Vishwanathji award in Mumbai for his knowledge of the Vedic teaching.

David Frawley gained wide public attention in India with his writings attacking the Aryan Invasion Theory. His approach to ancient India stresses its spirituality. He has pleaded for a return to the Vedas, treating these ancient texts as infallible soureces of wisdom.

Frawley founded and is the director of the American Vedic Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
