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…
