Tim Sawyer: The Bhakti Sastri course here at New Govardhana, taught by senior devotee Shanti Parayan dasa, started in November 2017 and is still going strong with an average of 8–10 students per class.
With all the residents of Krishna Pad attending each class and ladies from the brahmacharini ashrama, it is a very interactive and educational class.
After studying the Bhagavad-gita, we have now started on The Nectar of Instruction. The Bhagavad-gita was very thoroughly examined, with students learning about the three modes of material nature and the importance and significance of bhakti (devotional service).
Along with the slokas, it was a very demanding course but very rewarding to now have the knowledge of the Vedas instilled in us from such a prestigious teacher.
The Nectar of Instruction is also proving to be a very highly interactive and informative class. After this, we will study Sri Isopanisad and the Nectar of Devotion.
Happy studying, fellow bhaktas!
