The following is the first part of a two part seminar on the Śikṣāṣṭakam given by Śrīla Dhanurdhara Swami on April 1, 2018, at Yogamaya in New York City.
The Śikṣāṣṭakam – The Eight Essential Teachings of Śrī Caitanya – Part 1
Sunday, April 1, 2018
Although Śrī Caitanya was a great scholar he only composed eight verses called the Śikṣāṣṭakam, but in these verses he systematically presented the philosophy of bhakti from the basic practices and moods of devotion to its highest attainment. Dhanurdhara Swami’s series of two lectures will summarize the essence of each verse to highlight the core of his teachings and mission.
