A systematic study of Cantos 1 to 6 of the Srimad Bhagavatam

Bhakti Vaibhava is a systematic study of Cantos 1 to 6 of the Srimad Bhagavatam, the spotless Purana, which is “directed toward bringing about a revolution in the impious lives of this world’s misdirected civilization.” (SB 1.5.11)

“If you read Srimad Bhagavatam then immediately, you will realize God” - His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

One may have listened to many lectures on the text, and even read through this epic work numerous times, but often we find that only when studying it do we really gain a grasp of the key personalities, events, and lessons that need to be learnt from this paramahamsa-samhita. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to dedicate some time to a step-by-step study of this great work, Srila Prabhupada’s magnum opus. Indeed, Rupa Goswami explains in his Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu that even a small attachment for Srimad Bhagavatam can arouse devotional ecstasy (bhava bhakti) even in a neophyte.

The three-hour sessions are interactive and thought-provoking, encouraging learners to think for themselves about the practical application of the text to everyday life. The insights and association of fellow students also adds a unique flavour to the classes. Learners will have the opportunity to study each canto in turn, looking at Srila Prabhupada’s purports and the various pastimes from different viewpoints. Assessment is voluntary (some choose to be in the ‘hearer category’ and are therefore not liable to sit the tests) and takes place through homework assignments, some short written tests and sloka memorisation.
