This 3 day comprehensive course equips devotee with the knowledge, skills, and values to facilitate an ISKCON Board of Examiners approved Bhakti-sastri by building on the learning of the VTE Teacher Training Courses 1 and 2 and on each student’s experience of systematic śāstric study and practicing bhakti.
Students will enter into an in-depth and transformational exploration of the internal development Bhakti-śāstri facilitators should undergo in order to inspire their students’ spiritual growth most effectively. Śrīla Prabhupāda made it clear that he implemented the śāstric 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 Śrīla Prabhupāda vision by empowering participants to become deep devotees, entering the classroom with sufficient bhakti-śakti to make meaningful impacts upon the hearts of their students.
Each participant will write a Bhakti-śāstri lesson plan for the course assessment, and the course facilitator will give detailed feedback as part of the grading process.
