About the Bhaktivinoda Institute

We are disciples of Swami B.G. Narasiṅgha (a direct disciple of his Divine Grace A.C Bhaktivedānta Swami Prabhupāda). The Bhaktivinoda Institute website was created on his instruction by Gaura Gopāla Dāsa, Swami B.V. Giri, Sanātana Dāsa and Parameśvarī Dāsī. It was our Guru Mahārāja’s inspiration to create a web repository where all the works of Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākur (many of which have never been translated into English before) would be easily accessible and readable for all. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura is the modern day Vyāsadeva and is responsible for reinvigorating the saṅkīrtana movement of Mahāprabhu in recent times. Wherever possible we have given due credit for translations by other devotees. Read More…

A selection of articles by Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Prayāsa (Over endeavouring)

This article "Prayāsa (Over-endeavouring)" is the second of a series of articles published in the 10th Volume of Sajjana Toṣaṇī which deals with the six things that are favourable to bhakti and the six things that are unfavourable according to the second and third verses of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī’s Upadeśāmṛta. This second article deals with Prayāsa – Over-endeavouring and how it can become a serious obstacle to the free flow of bhakti.

The Marriage System of Bengal

The Marriage System of Bengal is an English article written in 1871 explaining Hindu marriage customs and their deplorable forms. The Ṭhākura gives historical outlines of various types of traditional marriages, and expresses sympathy for the women subjected to the inhumane marital practices of certain groups in Bengal.

Śrī Sampradāyera Ācārya Śrīmad Rāmānuja Svāmīra Upadeśa (The Instructions of Śrīmad Rāmānuja Svāmī – the Ācārya of the Śrī Sampradāya)

Śrī Sampradāyera Ācārya Śrīmad Rāmānuja Svāmīra Upadeśa (‘The Instructions of Śrīmad Rāmānuja Svāmī, the Ācārya of the Śrī Sampradāya’) was published by Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura in Sajjana Toṣaṇī, Vol.7, issues 3 &4 0n 1895. Due to the fact that there were not many Śrī Vaiṣṇavas in Bengal, the Ṭhākura wanted to familiarise his readers with the teachings of Śrī Rāmānuja, which are very akin to Gauḍīya Vaiṣnavism.
