Immediate Goal: Start Connecting Educators & Educational Initiatives World Wide

Srila Prabhupada On Education

“This human life is meant for understanding Brahman. Ahaṁ brahmāsmi. This is real education.” (Lecture on Bhagavad-gita 3.27, Madras, January 1, 1976)

“There is no institution, no school, no college, no university where this education is given – ‘Who am I? Am I this body, or I am something else? No. I am something else.’ So this education can be given through this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement. On the basis of Śrī Bhagavad-gītā, everything is explained very vividly.” (La Trobe University lecture, Melbourne, July 1, 1976)

Yes, we must set up our society as a school as best we can—I have already sent you letter. Please formulate the whole curriculum because we have to immediately submit to the Draft department and if this is accepted that will be great gain for our society. “Bhakti-sastri” is awarded after extensive study of Bhagavad-gita, Easy Journey, and Nectar of Devotion. “Bhakti-vaibhava” is awarded after study of Vedanta-sutra and Srimad-Bhagavatam on a preliminary basis; and “Bhaktivedanta” the highest title, is awarded after extensive study of Caitanya-caritamrta.” (Letter to Brahmananda, Hawaii, March 23, 1969)
