Sri Rupa Goswami

AN INVITATION TO THE 2019

Sri Rupa Goswami Conference on Vaishnavism

VRINDAVANA’S PREMIER SEMINAR ON VAISHNAVISM FOR THREE DECADES

under the auspices of

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja

Now in our 15th year

AUGUST 12·13·14·2019

Gopīnāth Bhavan -  Rūpa Sanātana Gauḍiya Math - Vrindavan

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.

Thirty years ago, at the Rupa Sanatana Gaudiya Math in Seva Kunj, Vrindavana, Srila BV Narayana Maharaja convened a three-day conference to discuss the glories of Srila Rupa Goswami. The conference continues to this day, every Jhulan, in Hindi in the evenings at the Rupa Sanatana Gaudiya Math. Fifteen years ago, Srila Maharaja began English morning sessions 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 the Sri Rupa Goswami Conference on Vaishnavism. An international assembly of distinguished scholars will be speaking and we welcome your participation. While we don’t expect a large crowd to the English morning sessions, we do promise a comfortable assembly of like-minded scholars and attentive listeners.

Conference Venue: Top floor of Gopinath Bhavan, located on the Parikrama Marg next to Imli Tala in the Seva Kunj area. An elevator is available. This year's Program will be sent in a few days.

Last year, for the first time, we began live streaming of the Rupa Goswami Conference. It will be continued this year.
