Rediscovering the Bhagavatam

From All Angles of Vision: Rediscovering the Bhagavatam

As the core scripture of our Caitanya Vaishnava tradition, the Srimad Bhagavatam is a vast and rich treasure of spiritual truth, narrative wonder, and practical guidance. Yet its sheer size and complexity can be overwhelming. In this seminar we will reflect together on various aspects of the Bhagavatam, with special attention on the practice of overviewing relatively large portions of the text. In particular we will focus on the First Canto, as a prelude to the rest of the work, and as a “devotional commentary” on the Mahabharata.

About the speaker:
Krishna Kshetra Das (based in Oxford, U.K., and in Radhadesh, Belgium) received initiation from Srila Prabhupada in 1972. In recent years, wishing to help develop systematic education within ISKCON, he earned a D.Phil. (PhD) in Religious Studies at Oxford University and has gained teaching experience over a six-year period at University of Florida and Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is currently the Dean of Studies at Bhaktivedanta College, Radhadesh, and a permanent Research Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies.

Together with Radhikaramana Prabhu (USA) he has edited “The Bhagavata Purana: Sacred Text and Living Tradition” (Columbia University Press, available this April) and together they are now preparing an abridged Bhagavatam with the same publisher.
