Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Srila Prabhupada wanted devotees to be well trained and educated in order to preach Krishna consciousness to various audiences worldwide. Bhaktivedanta College, at Radhadesh, is educating students in the principles, philosophy, and culture of Vaishnavism by offering a wide range of academic courses on Vaishnavism (accredited by the University of Wales Lampeter) and vocational training and devotional courses that help the students develop qualifications to serve ISKCON according to their propensities. So far, we have received positive feedback from students and their parents regarding their educational experiences at the College, and this is a confirmation and encouragement to us to continue this important project.
For the first time, in September 2006, Year three classes will be run. We have already received applications from devotees who are eager to become students at Bhaktivedanata College, but what separates them from fulfilling their great desire is a lack of money. You can help them by financially supporting their studies, thus enabling them to develop their capabilities to succeed in spiritual life in ISKCON. If you decide to support a student during the coming academic year at Bhaktivedanta College, you have the options of making a general donation (and leaving it to us to distribute the funding) or supporting a particular devotee. Please click on Support Us when you visit our Web site: www.bhaktivedantacollege.com or contact us by email jaya.krsna.SNS@pamho.net.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you are having a pleasant Spring.
Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada,
The Administrative Council
Yadunandana Dasa Jaya Krsna Dasa
P.S. Dina Dayala Dasa, from Croatia, whose second year of studies was supported by a scholarship, said, “My education at Bhaktivedanta College is fulfilling my spiritual dreams. An honour like this is possible for me only because of the kind help of Sham and Saroj Idnani from America. Entirely indebted, I am looking forward to applying more and more the knowledge and skills I learn here. My ultimate goal is to become an efficient instrument in Srila Prabhupada’s mission.”
