It is with great pleasure that we present you the course Bhakti-vriksha – Hands on Training


This is a 9 Hours comprehensive course, especially designed for those interested in learning to facilitate Bhakti-vriksha sessions in a very systematic manner, based on Aims, Objectives and Lesson Plans. This course is especially recommended for those interested in starting or improving Bhakti-vriksha programs in ISKCON.
