Bhakti VigyanaGoswami on the course:
Since all of my students must attentively chant the holy name every day,regularly read the books of SrilaPrabhupada and listen to lectures, communicate with Vaisnavas, use their energy in serving Krsna and, as far as possible, preach the science of Krsna consciousness; and since each of these types of sadhana plays a big role
In making a disciple into a Vaisnava, I decided to introduce the additional training for all candidates for the first initiation.
The point of this training is to prepare a candidate for a life with initiation.
During this training, candidates will need to:
1. Learn to attentively chant the holy name, avoiding offences.
2. Read books that are necessary to study at this level of spiritual life.
3. Regularly listen to the lectures of SrilaPrabhupada, SrilaRadhanath Swami and Bhakti VigyanaGosvami.
4. Developing relationships with senior Vaisnavas. Serve under the direction of senior devotees in ISKCON.
5. Use everything in the service of Krsna (for example, offer food to Krsna and take only prasadam).
6. Preach the science of Krsna consciousness as much as possible.
The training is designed for one year. If for some reason you cannot receive the training, for example, due to a serious illness or because of age, but you want to receive initiation, contact my secretary, Dina Caitanyaprabhu (through the disciple's coordinator in your region) to resolve this issue individualy. First of all, I recommend that all of my disciples, who are already initiated, receive this training.
I wish you luck and spiritual realizations!
Your Servant, Bhakti VigyanaGosvami
