VIHE Bhakti-vedanta Course

Srila Prabhupada envisioned four levels of study of his books—Bhakti-sastri, Bhakti-vaibhava, Bhakti-vedanta and Bhakti-sarvabhauma. The VIHE is endeavoring to establish these degrees and thus provide an opportunity for higher studies in Krsna conscious philosophy to interested devotees. The Bhakti-vedanta Course follows the study of Bhakti-vaibhava (Canto 1 to 6) and consists of the study of Canto 7 to 12 of Srimad-bhagavatam.

The first Bhakti-vedanta Course was held at the VIHE over five semesters of four months each by His Grace Bhurijana Dasa and Her Grace Narayani Devi Dasi in 2006-2010.

The course is divided into five semesters of four months each.
