By Janmastami das

If you are meditating on improving your spiritual life, increasing your contribution to Srila Prabhupada’s movement, or are unsure how to pass the tests Krishna is giving you, then please consider taking Srila Prabhupada’s powerful darshan in Sridham Mayapur.

Srila Prabhupada’s darshan that we are referring to here is in his books and more specifically in his “personal ecstasies” within his Bhaktivedanta purports. The power of this darshan will be fully experienced in the sanga of advanced Vaisnavas this coming November when the Mayapur Institute for Higher Education and Training will launch newly re-designed VTE Bhakti-sastri and VTE Bhaktivaibhava Courses. Senior ISKCON educators predict these courses will revolutionize sastric study in our movement.

A team of senior devotees will facilitate these courses sharing their realizations in an interactive format designed to empower devotees as preachers, leaders, and lifetime servants of ISKCON.

These courses begin on Bhisma Pancaka (November 9, 2008), enabling devotees, during the last five days of Kartika, to get credit for their austerities as if they had performed them for the entire caturmasya.

Most Saturdays, while these courses are in session, our sannyasi facilitators will lead out parikramas throughout Navadvipa Dhama.

Due to the unprecedented stature of our teachers and the launch of very student friendly curriculum this year, the Mayapur Institute expects many devotees will enroll in these courses and thus encourages devotees to apply online as soon as possible to begin the registration process and secure seats on the course..

These courses will end (February 11, 2009) before the Mayapur Festival begins (February 24, 2009). During the Festival period the Mayapur Institute will offer the Gaura Purnmia Courses, which will provide many opportunities for our sastric students and others to increase their devotional and life skills.

We hope to be able to serve you in Mayapur in the months ahead.
