Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum: Global Festival of Divinity in Humanity

On the sacred occasion of Krishna Janmashtami, Advaita Academy in collaboration with Adhyatma Yoga Academy is organizing a month-long festival titled ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum: Global Festival of Divinity in Humanity’ to celebrate the universal teachings of Bhagavan Krishna.

Sri Krishna holds a very prominent place in the hearts of Hindus across the world. Bhagavan, Avatara, Purushottama, Jagadguru- many are his dimensions and devotees develop a personal and intimate connection with Him.

Sri Krishna is the pole star inspiring all – from children to the aged to the pinnacles of perfection. The mischievous pranks of child Krishna marvel the kids; his concern to the fellow beings and cattle inspires a common man; aspirants of a successful career and business get thrilled by his leadership and managerial skills. He was a pastoral, a kingmaker and a master par excellence. He is considered to be Yogeshwara – the greatest of Yogis and his teachings in the Bhagawad Gita constitute Yoga Shastra.

Sri Krishna has influenced not only the religious and spiritual world but also the art, culture, education, science and society in India, but many parts of the world. His life and teachings have influenced both ancient masters like Veda Vyasa, Adi Shankara, Ramanuja, Madhva, Chaitanya and also masters of recent times like Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Paramahamsa Yogananda and Srila Prabhupada. His teachings are ever relevant. It is apt that Acharya Shankara praised him as “Sri Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum”.

Starting August 11, we will host one talk every evening by Sages, Scholars, and Devotees for thirty-days till September 11 highlighting different aspects of life and philosophy of Bhagavan Krishna. The festival also has a cultural extravaganza for both kids and the elders with flute concerts, devotional chantings, dance, quiz and a lot more.
