About this course

Canto 8 Srimad Bhagavatam

The Bhagavad Gita is invaluable in gifting us the words and instructions of Krishna. And then there is the Srimad Bhagavatam, gifting us further instructions of Krishna but also allowing us to be privy to His activities too. If one is to listen to the instructions of Krishna, then at some point it behoves one to know more about what Krishna does, His adventures and His enlivening interactions with others on the terrestrial, celestial and transcendental planes of reality.


This vast and comprehensive spiritual literature is divided into 12 cantos. Each canto focuses on a certain aspect of Krishna’s qualities and canto 8 vividly presents the theme of ‘manvantara’ or the reign of the Manus who are administrators of the universe appointed by the Supreme Lord.


Join us on this course as our scholarly teacher Kartikka Candra Dasa will take students deeper into this canto which features pastimes of the Lord in some of the manvantaras and how He appeared (in various forms!) and provided protection. These include:

– Gajendra, the king of elephants who surrendered to the Lord for protection

– samudra manthan, the churning of the milk ocean

– Bali Maharaj surrendering himself to Lord Vamanadeva

– appearance of Lord Matsya


This course is suitable for students aged 13 years and above and an understanding of ‘Bhagavad Gita As It Is’ is preferred so that deeper subject matters can be easily grasped.


This is a hybrid course but participants are encouraged to attend onsite for a better experience and interaction with the teacher during and after the session.


Please note this course is an 8 session course but there may be an additional 1-2 sessions.
