4 Sastric Degrees

Vision

“I want that all of my spiritual sons and daughters will inherit this title of Bhaktivedanta, so that the family transcendental diploma will continue through the generations… That is my program.”

-Srila Prabhupada, Los Angeles, 1969.

“I am suggesting the following examinations: Bhakti-sastri: (for all brahmanas) based on Bhagavad-gita, Sri Isopanisad, The Nectar of Devotion, Nectar of Instruction, and all the small paperbacks. Bhakti-vaibhava: the above plus first six Cantos of Srimad-Bhagavatam. Bhakti-vedanta: the above plus cantos 7-12 Srimad-Bhagavatam. Bhakti-sarvabhauma: the above plus Caitanya-caritamrta. These titles can correspond to entrance BA, MA, Ph.D.”

-Srila Prabhupada, Letter to Svarupa Damodara, 10th January, 1976
