ISKCON Disciple Course

Dates: Every Saturday, 14th - 28th October

Have you ever felt the need to approach a spiritual master? Am I ready to accept a higher authority? Who is a spiritual master? What are his qualifications? Is he God?

Scriptures are littered with references pertaining to the importance of accepting and serving a spiritual master. But the path to a bonafide guru can seem fraught with danger and a rather hazy one.

Learn more about the qualifications of a guru, how to recognise a bonafide guru, the significance of initiation, how to associate with your guru, and the characteristics of a good disciple.

The course also touches on the particulars of what acceptance of a guru practically means in a modern context within ISKCON.

Course Outline

  • Reasons for initiation
  • Necessity of accepting a spiritual master
  • Qualifications of a guru and a disciple
  • Definition of diksa
  • Procedure for initiation

Though essential for those seeking spiritual initiation, this course is relevant to anyone who wants to learn more about this most sacred of relationships.
