Schools & Colleges

Bhaktivedanta College promotes the spiritual and cultural legacy of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, brought from India to the West by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. The College presents a systematic programme of education and training, with special emphasis on personal application. We offer courses on Vaishnava Studies along with other disciplines, in three strands: academic study, vocational skills, and character development. The courses, taught by devotee-scholars, provide students with sound spiritual training combined with academic excellence. The College most naturally facilitates devotees who desire to realise Srila Prabhupada’s vision of education based on Krishna conscious principles.

The Bhaktivedanta Institute - Through its distinctive research and degree programs, the Bhaktivedanta Institute (B.I.) is in the forefront of the newly emerging scientific field of Consciousness Studies. In 1990, the Institute conducted in San Francisco, the First International Conference on the Study of Consciousness Within Science, in which fourteen major research scientists including three Nobel Laureates presented papers. The Institute has, since then, conducted, the world's only and longest running colloquium on science and consciousness in the Bay Area. The Institute has also pursued its own research initiative within the new field of consciousness studies.

The Mayapur Institute of Higher Education - "Throughout the whole world there is no institution to impart education in the matter of spiritual understanding. So we are going to open a big center in Mayapur where this education will be internationally imparted. Students from all parts of the world will go there to take education in this important subject." (Srila Prabhupada - 1971 letter)

Rupanuga Vedic College is unique in the world in that it offers a pure Vaishnava educational environment with the opportunity to earn Associates, Bachelors, Masters and Doctorates of Divinity degrees. RVC also offers Vaisnava devotional titles such as Bhakti-sastri and Bhakti-Vaibhava.

The Bhaktivedanta Academy based in Sridhama Mayapur, was established in the early 1980’s. The devotees educated there are imbibed with the philosophy, science, and culture of Gaudiya Vaisnavism and are thus trained to teach and demonstrate the essential principles of that culture to others.
