Sri Rupa Goswami


Sri Rupa Goswami Conference on Vaishnavism


under the auspices of

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja

AUGUST 23·24·25·2018

Srila Rupa Goswami is revered in the Gaudiya Vaishnava community as the chief of the Six Goswamis, the direct disciples of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. His voluminous body of literature –treatises, dramas, and poetry – were written following the instructions of Sriman Mahaprabhu and comprise the theology of Gaudiya Vaishnavism.

For thirty years, the Rupa Sanatana Gaudiya Math, under the guidance of Srila B.V. Narayana Maharaja, has held a conference (conducted in Hindi) to discuss the glories of Srila Rupa Goswami. Fourteen years ago, Srila Maharaja began English morning sessions, and they continue at nearby Gopinath Bhavan. The conference is a forum for Vaishnavas and scholars to speak on the glories of Srila Rupa Goswami and various aspects of Vaishnavism in relation to him, as well as to engage in extended discussion on these subjects. It is meant to enliven the Vaishnava community with topics that are relevant to their devotional practice and about which they are eager to hear.

It is my honor on behalf of the conference to invite you to attend theSri Rupa Goswami Conference on Vaishnavism. An international assembly of distinguished scholars will be speaking and we welcome your participation. We don’t expect a large crowd to the English morning sessions, but we do promise a comfortable assembly of like-minded scholars and attentive listeners. The venue is on the top floor of Gopinath Bhavan, which is located on the Parikrama Marg next to Imli Tala in the Seva Kunj area. Our Program is listed below.

Last year, for the first time, we began live streaming of the Rupa Goswami Conference. It will be continued this year. You can view the videos on the following Facebook address: We will be posting the videos as the conference is in session, but they can also be viewed on the Facebook page at any time.

The Rupa Goswami Conference now has a Youtube address: are in the process of uploading videos of past conferences.

Your servant,
Manjari dasi
