Hearing spiritual discourses about the name, fame, qualities, forms and pastimes of the Lord is one of the main limbs of Bhakti as told by Srila Rupa Goswami in his Bhakti Rasamrita Sindhu. Hearing such transcendental discussions about the Lord develops, in the hearts of the faithful listeners, a strong desire to serve the Lord. Therefore Srila Prabhupad instructed all his followers to read and hear the Srimad Bhagawatam and Srimad Bhagavad Gita every single day. Following his instruction, a morning Shrimad Bhagawatam class in the temple hall and evening Bhagavad gita class in Srila Prabbhupad’s house has been going on since the very beginning.
Due to the corona Virus situation, the evening Bhagavad Gita class, which used to be conducted in Srila Prabhupad’s house, was being conducted through Zoom meetings where the devotees could join and hear the lectures given by various well versed devotees. Now that the situation is starting to normalize to some extent, the classes are once again going to be conducted in Srila Prabhupad’s house from tomorrow onwards. Following the 05:00 to 06:00 PM Bhagavad Gita class, starting today, every evening we will have Srila Prbhupada’s lecture from 06:00 to 06:30 PM. This is a beautiful addition to our existing program and we hope that everyone will greatly appreciate and participate in the evening lectures of Srila Prabhupad.
We invite all the devotees to come and attend the Bhagavad Gita Class and Srila Prabhupad’s lecture in his quarters everyday. We also request everyone to continue following the covid-19 guidelines while coming for the lectures.
