Course Description

One of the most fascinating and revelatory texts for devotees of Krishna, the Brahma Samhita merits a deep study. Best known for its "govindam adi purusam" verses which we are all familiar with, the text expounds on a variety of important philosophical themes. 

Srila Prabhupada states that this a book authorised by the Supreme Lord, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu Himself.

Here is how the Sri Caitanya Caritamrta (Madhya Lila, Chapter 9, verses 239-240) glorifies this book:

"There is no scripture equal to the Brahma-samhita as far as the final spiritual conclusion is concerned. Indeed, that scripture is the supreme revelation of the glories of Lord Govinda, for it reveals the topmost knowledge about Him. Since all conclusions are briefly presented in the Brahma-samhita, it is essential among all the Vaisnava scriptures. "

This course will include an overview of the text, followed by a detailed  verse by verse study, incorporating illuminating comments from our Gaudiya Vaisnava Acaryas.
