By ISKCON News   |  Jan 02, 2024

Back in May 2023, ISKCON News profiled ISKCON Bhagavata Mahavidyalaya’s groundbreaking move to spread the teachings of Srimad Bhagavatam and advance Vedic education by launching a new educational program in collaboration with the Simhachalam community. They also launched a mobile app and website which both offer a user-friendly interface that allows individuals to easily create an account and access a range of courses. Some courses are entirely free, encouraging participants to delve into the teachings of the Bhagavatam. Additional courses, which require a nominal fee for maintenance purposes, offer more specialized study topics. The Bhagavata College has offered over 75 courses to thousands of students in over 40 countries.

They have now successfully completed their first academic year in ISKCON Bhagavata Mahavidyalaya Europe, Simhachalam. They have offered 19 online courses in English, Russian, French and German, enrolling 606 online participants and offering a successful on-site program at Simhachalam.
