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

‘Tattva Sāra’ (A book by a follower of Ramakrishna)

‘Tattva Sāra’ is a book review first published in Sajjana Toṣaṇī Vol.2 issue 6 in 1885. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura critiques a book by Rāma Candra Datta who was a follower of the famous Ramakrishna Paramahaṁsa. In this article, Bhaktivinoda is ambivalent in regards to Ramakrishna, who at this time, was just gaining a name for himself, but in his review, the Ṭhākura discusses the topic of bhāva.

Epilogue to Śrī Kṛṣṇa Karṇāmṛta

The Epilogue to Śrī Kṛṣṇa Karṇāṁrta was first published in Sajjana Toṣaṇi, Vol.10 issue 5 in 1898. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura gives a brief synopsis of rāgānugā-bhakti and then lists various ślokas within Kṛṣṇa Karṇāṁrta that describe certain characteristics of rāgānugā-bhakti sādhana.
