This 2 day comprehensive course equips devotee with the knowledge, skills, and values to facilitate an ISKCON Board of Examiners approved Bhakti-sastri course by building on the learning of the VTE Teacher Training Courses 1 and 2 and on each student’s experience of systematic sastric study and practicing bhakti.
Students will enter into an in-depth and transformational exploration of the internal development Bhakti-sastri facilitators should undergo in order to inspire their students’ spiritual growth most effectively. Srila Prabhupada made it clear that he implemented the sastric degrees within ISKCON primarily to give full facility to his followers to make spiritual advancement and become strong and steady preachers. The course facilitation focuses on fulfilling Srila Prabhupada vision by empowering participants to become deep devotees, entering the classroom with sufficient bhakti-sakti to make meaningful impacts upon the hearts of their students.
Each participant will write a Bhakti-sastri lesson plan for the course assessment, and the course facilitator will give detailed feedback as part of the grading process.
