Saranagati – Process of Surrender

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Saranagati is one of Bhaktivinode Thakur’s popular writings. ‘Saranagati’ means ‘Process of Surrender’.

Saranagati means that a person has a desire to do something for Krishna. And as long as this desire does not appear, and the willingness to sacrifice does not appear, a person cannot truly consider himself a devotee.

Bhakti, or love of God, begins with Saranagati (surrender) unto Him, and as Saranagati develops in us our feelings for Krishna become more and more alive.

Time: 7:30am

Venue: Bhaktivedanta Manor Temple Room
