Bhagavata Saptaha

With Guest of Honor Sri Venugopal Goswami, Bhakti Yoga Acharya, Vrindavan, North India

Friday, 23 December – Thursday, 29 December, 2022

With live music: harmonium, singing, bamboo flute, and tablas.

Satsangs based on the Srimad bhagavatam, a great classical text on the yoga of the heart. The combination of stories, poetry, music and philosophy has a profoundly soothing and uplifting effect on the heart and mind.

Sri Venugopal Goswami is a spiritual teacher in a tradition that has nurtured the flame of bhakti yoga since the 16th century. He received his musical training from the great Indian singer Pandit Jasraj. The shared teachings, the recitation of mantras, the subtle tones of the ragas and the inspiring bhajans draw on the ancient wisdom of India.

Taught in English with simultaneous translation into French.
