Please Accept my humble obeisances
All Glories To Srila Prabhupada!
An outstanding course that leaves little to the imagination. Well instructed and moderated by Dhruva Maharaja dasa and Samapriya devi dasi. Their input and mentoring provides an incomparable Gita experience. Forum essays and chatroom interaction helps keep one focused on course material and allows for greater course retention. Weekly quizzes and word problems help in reviewing the week’s chapter study while challenging one’s comprehension. This course will make the Bhagavad-gita as it is part of your life in a very big way. Submerge yourself in this Krishna conscious environment and realize the Supreme Personality of Godhead in greater consciousness.

It is my hope whatever the decisions of BBT as well as Iskcon at large are, that the blessings and mercy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and the well wishing of all the devotees of Lord Krishna, go with BBT as well as Iskcon as they moves forward in their quest to fulfill the hopes and dreams of their founder His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Devotee:”Srila Prabhupada, What did Bhaktivinoda Thakura mean when he said,”I am going my work unfinished”?”
Srila Prabhupada:”So let us finish. We are descendent of Bhaktivinoda Thakura. He kept unfinished so that we will get the chance to finish. That is his mercy. He could have finished immediately. He is Vaisnava. He is all powerful.”
With the destruction of dynasty, the eternal family tradition is vanquished, and thus the rest of the family becomes involved in irreligion.
In the system of the varnÌ£ÄÅrama institution there are many principles of religious traditions to help members of the family grow properly and attain spiritual values. The elder members are responsible for such purifying processes in the family, beginning from birth to death. But on the death of the elder members, such family traditions of purification may stop, and the remaining younger family members may develop irreligious habits and thereby lose their chance for spiritual salvation. Therefore, for no purpose should the elder members of the family be slain.
(quote from Bhagavad-gita as it is chapter 1 text 39, Translation and Purport by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada)
Srila Prabhupada letter to Tamal Krishna (8/19/68)
“This is actually a devotee’s business that everyone should appreciate the value of other devotees. Nobody should criticize anyone.”
