RELEASE OF SEMINARS FROM INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION SYMPOSIUM
In 2019, the Ministry of Education embarked upon an annual symposium called “Viplavah”.
Our aim was to provide ISKCON educators from around the globe the opportunity to gather in Sridham Mayapur and share some of the invaluable insights they have acquired through their many years of practice.
During the symposium, many established educators presented invaluable seminars on a variety of topics. Please subscribe to our mailing list to keep updated on new releases.
We plan to conduct our next Annual International Education Symposium between the 4th to 6th of March, 2021 at Sridham Mayapur during the Gaura-purnima festival.
Please write to us at email@example.com
if you would like to attend as a guest or present as a speaker.
The first talk we would like to share with you is by His Holiness Krishna Kshetra Swami’s "Education not Indoctrination".
Within this nectar-filled seminar, Maharaja discusses the issue of indoctrination and the detrimental effects it can have on the process of learning/realising the teachings of the absolute truth, while also sharing scripturally-sound tips on how to promote the culture of free thinking required to prevent indoctrination from becoming an issue today. You can view Maharaja's seminar at https://iskconeducation.org/fortnight-symposium-seminars/
Please share this newsletter with devotees who may be interested in learning more about our ministry.
