Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
VIHE is heartily inviting all the serious students to our transformational Bhakti-sastri course. Bhakti-sastri course is a systematic study of Srila Prabhupada’s books. Srila Prabhupada wanted all of us to deeply study his books, so that we could be better preachers, teachers and, very importantly, achieve a clear understanding and application of the beautiful science of devotional service. Sri Vrindavan Dham mercifully provides a unique environment to enhance one’s taste and appreciation of the treasures of direct bhakti.
This year the English Bhakti-sastri course in Vrindavan is scheduled to take place from July 19 to November 12.
Requirements for the course: Good sadhana, brahminical tendencies, voluntary service, proficiency in English and a recommendation/character sketch from a senior devotee who knows you well. Assessment criteria include attendance and personal conduct.
