Dear devotees,

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada

We are happy to announce that the Fourth Bhagavata Sastri course at Govardhana Srimad-Bhagavata Vidyapitham is now open for admission.

The Bhagavata Sastri course is unique in many ways:

** it is headed by one of ISKCON’s most renowned devotee-scholars, Gopiparanadhana Prabhu;

** the school’s premises are located at Sri Govardhana, one of Krsna’s most
favorite places;

** for the first time in ISKCON it offers a systematic course on Srila Jiva
Goswami’s masterpiece, the Sat-sandarbhas, foundational to Gaudiya Vaisnava
philosophy and practice;

** it enables the students to master the entire grammar of the Sanskrit
language, based on Srila Jiva Goswami’s Hari-namamrita-vyakarana, in a
matter of just two years;

** the course trains students to speak Sanskrit with ease and elegance;

** the students are taught the art of reading the acaryas’ commentaries on
the Srimad-Bhagavatam and translating Sanskrit devotional texts into English
with the prospect of serving as BBT Sanskrit translators and editors;

** third year students are offered courses in Sanskrit kavya (poetry), nyaya
(logic), and Vedanta;

** and, what’s more, the course is ABSOLUTELY FREE for all admitted
students, including accommodation and prasadam, for its entire duration of
three years.
