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…

Saṁśaya Nivṛtti (Dispelling Doubts) was first published in Sajjana Toṣaṇī Vol. 4, issues 11 &12 in 1893. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura tells a story of a Vaiṣṇava who approaches a pure devotee with two doubts in relation to Kṛṣṇa giving bhakti to those who have material desires.

Nūtana Patrikā (A New Magazine) - 1 was published in Sajjana Toṣaṇi, Vol.4, Issue 2 in 1892. In this article Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura reviews a new magazine published in Vṛndāvana and specifically discusses an article by a gosvāmī who criticizes Śrīla Baladeva Vidyābhūṣaṇa.

Śrī Śrī Navadvīpa Dhāma

‘Śrī Śrī Navadvīpa Dhāma’ was first published in Śrī Viṣṇupriyā Patrikā, Vol.2 issue 5 in 1891. This article was written just after Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura had published Śrī Navadvīpa Dhāma Māhātmya, and here, we find the Ṭhākura giving evidence for Māyāpura as the birthplace of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
