About The Author
Davíð Rafn Kristjánsson was born in 1982 in a small town called Akureyri in the north of Iceland. He grew up in Reykjavik, the capital city. In his early 20s Davíð became intrigued with the Buddhist understanding of human nature, including traditional Yoga and Eastern Philosophy.
He studied law at Akureyri University and continued his studies in China. Just as the financial crisis hit Iceland in 2008, David went to the USA to live with his first spiritual teacher, whom he had met in a bookshop in Iceland.
He then lived in Beijing for 4 years where he was involved in a community of spiritual and creative people. At this time he started writing his novel, Burning Karma. He continued to move to different places and add to his study of spiritual matters, living in Cambodia for 2 years and then in an Ashram in India.
Davíð believes that knowledge comes from experience. Burning Karma is inspired by many people he met on his travels and his own experiences with spiritual growth. His gratitude towards the people in his life and their inspiration has pushed him to write this book, in hopes of inspiring others.
Davíð currently lives in Reykjavik with his girlfriend.
