Inspiration from the Srimad Bhagavatam

Discourses based on the Srimad Bhagavatam, an ancient scripture on Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of universal love. It tells many stories which help us open our hearts, overcome fears and confusion and understand the joy and unity of all life.

Sri Venugopal Goswami hails from a 500 year old family tradition of Hari Katha, a unique and inimitable style of combining the message of the ancient scripture Srimad Bhagavatam with melodious musical renditions. Inspiring words of wisdom leave a deep impression on the minds of the listeners as they are taken on a soulful spiritual journey, explaining the purpose and meaning of human life.

With live music : Sri Venugopal Goswami will be accompanied by 3 accomplished musicians at the harmonium and vocal, tablas and bansuri flute.

Under the spiritual guidance of Swami Durgananda, Yoga Acharya
