Spiritual Life in Our Busy World – Presented by H.D. Goswami
H.D. Goswami will be presenting the path of Bhakti-Yoga, as it is taught in the Bhagavad-Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam, and how to apply it in our busy lives.
About H.D. Goswami:
Hridayananda Das Goswami (Howard Resnick, Ph.D.) is an initiated sannyasi (lifelong celibacy) from the Gaudiya Vaishnava School of Bhakti Yoga under the guidance of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, for more than 40 years. Born in November 5, 1948, grew up in Los Angeles, California. H.D. Goswami received his Ph.D. in Sanskrit and Indian Studies from Harvard University. He is fluent in seven languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, and Sanskrit) and recently completed literal translations of the Bhagavad-Gita and the first canto of the Bhagavata-purana. He is now working on a three-part historical novel based on the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata, and has recently published “A Comprehensive Guide to Bhagavad Gita with Literal Translation.”
As a dedicated teacher and scholar of religious history, H.D. Goswami continues to seek out effective ways in which to preserve yet adapt ancient wisdom to contemporary circumstances. In 2013, he launched a project called Krishna West. Because people in the West need and deserve the chance to practice genuine bhakti yoga within an external culture that is comfortable and natural for them, H.D. Goswami established Krishna West to help facilitate ISKCON’s outreach to Western audiences.
