About this course

Brahman Initiation Part 1

“The brahmana is meant for doing the brain work. He will give advice. Just like we, Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement, we, we are not meant for the ksatriya’s business or vaisya’s business, the devotees, but if required they can take. But real business is, brāhmaṇa’s business is to know the Vedas, the Brahman, the Supreme Brahman, the Absolute Truth. He, he must know, and he must distribute the knowledge. This is brāhmaṇa.” – A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


Srila Prabhupada explained that he wanted a society of brahmanas. First class men and women exhibiting exemplary Vaisnava character. But what does this mean practically, and how can one move forward in developing these qualities in a practical way? This is a course for those who are preparing to take second initiation and for those who already have. It has been prepared due to frequent enquiries from many devotees on all subjects related to second initiation.

Part one can be attended by individuals who have not yet received second initiation or who are already second initiated. Part two explains the meaning of the mantras. Part two is only for those who are second initiated.
