When we come to Krishna Consciousness, everything is new and exciting even though we do not understand many things yet. Gradually, we start having many questions about different aspects of Bhakti Yoga. The Bhakti-sadacara course is especially designed to give systematic knowledge to new devotees and to train devotees who did not have a chance for such systematic training before.
The course covers different aspects of the path of devotion and provides not only knowledge but aims to cultivate Vaisnava qualities and instill devotional values. Whether you came to Krishna Consciousness just recently or have been practicing for some time already, this course will be of great benefit for you due to its practical and informative nature. Besides that, it will help you get ready for the Bhakti-sastri and other courses.
Jan 15 – Apr 8, 2021 (2.5 months)
There are no initial requirements for attending the course; however, it is advised that one chants a minimum of 4 rounds of Hare Krishna mantra daily. We also require 1 recommendation from an ISKCON authority or a senior devotee who knows the candidate well.
