Chandi Heffner is a former belly dancer and Hare Krishna who gained attention in the 1980s when she moved to Hawaii and formed a unique friendship with the eccentric and reclusive woman, Doris Duke.
Doris, an heiress to a vast fortune, believed that Chandi was the reincarnation of her daughter Arden, leading to an adoption that would forever change both their lives.
Following her adoption by Doris Duke in 1988, Chandi’s life took an extraordinary turn.
Doris promised to care for Chandi in the manner she had become accustomed to and made her the executor of her will.
Chandi assumed a significant role in Duke’s life, managing her households, advising on finances, and traveling with her around the world.
Duke even purchased a horse farm for Chandi on Hawaii’s Big Island, where she still resides today.
