My Apology re: the “Not Vedic” Post

I can see now that some people have severely misunderstood some of the things I said in my “You are not Vedic” post and I feel that I must issue a sincere apology. ❀❀❀ Some people were shocked by what appeared to them as “anti-vedic and anti-Indian” statements. I sincerely apologize to any and all who…

What are the Veda?

I’ve made this video to give you an inside look into my course on the Veda, entitled Śāstra and Bhakti, “The Role of Sacred Text in Gauḍīya Bhakti.” There are four different ways you can take the course: by self-study, guided-study, group-classes, or private classes.

Tired of 2012
