The ISKCON Disciples Course is a training program which deepens devotees’ understanding of guru tattva and guru padasraya within the multiple guru environment of ISKCON. Designed for new devotees preparing to take initiation in ISKCON, the course is also recommended for leaders, preachers, councilors and educators in ISKCON.
The course was developed under the direction of the Guru Services Committee, with the combined efforts of leading educators in ISKCON. The course is based on the teachings of Srila Prabhupada and current ISKCON Law and references the writings of the broader Gaudiya Vaisnava tradition. The 14 lessons include Powerpoint presentations, interactive workshops, forums, quizzes and assessment exercises.
The ISKCON Disciple Course is designed so that your time zone is not of primary importance. You just move along the materials to be found on the web pages. During the course, we will meet for two or three live Q&A sessions, but we decide on the timings together so that the majority of participants will have the opportunity to take part.
