Now in our 19th year

AUGUST 28 · 29 · 30 · 2023

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 Goswami Maharaja convened a three-day Hindi conference to discuss the glories of Srila Rupa Goswami. To this day, the conference continues every Jhulan. This year, the three-day Hindi conference will be held at Gopinath Bhavan. Srila Maharaja also began English morning sessions at Gopinath Bhavan. These morning talks are now in their eighteenth year. 

The Rupa Goswami 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:  This year, the English sessions have moved to the beautiful, inner courtyard on the ground floor of the original area of Gopinath Bhavan, which is located on the Parikrama Marg next to Imli Tala in the Seva Kunj area. Below, please find the Rupa Goswami Conference Program, with listings of both morning English and evening Hindi sessions.
