1) On-site Bhakti-sastri course

21 June – 11 November, 2023 

Srila Prabhupada envisioned the Bhakti-sastri level of study as a training for brahmanas. This systematically structured course enhances the philosophical knowledge of the practitioner as well as his/her ability to cultivate vaisnava qualities and apply the sastric knowledge in real life. Devotees learn to see the world from a sastric perspective. Their faith is enhanced, their conviction becomes stronger and they are able to convey the message of Krsna consciousness to others more effectively. Devotees are encouraged to develop the spirit of service and cooperation via practical engagements throughout the course.

2) On-site Bhakti-sadacara course

15 July – 11 November, 2023

Bhakti-sadacara is a pre-Bhakti-sastri course suited for those who have relatively recently taken to the practice of Krsna consciousness and would like to gain basic knowledge and training in bhakti-yoga. It is also beneficial for those who did not get any opportunity for systematic training. The course gives a formal understanding of the Gaudiya Vaisnava philosophy and enables one to assimilate the practices of Krsna consciousness step by step. It includes practical workshops, karatala and mrdanga lessons and discussions concerning vaisnava values and qualities. A major part of the time is spent studying Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta. Additionally, this course proves to be a stepping stone for Bhakti-sastri.
