Evening Classes on Sri Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam:
Throughout the winter and spring of 2010/2011 Sripad Vaishnav Maharaj gave class on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from the holy scripture Sri Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam by Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj. Vaishnav Maharaj insisted that everyone in the class would take turns reading the verses. Although various devotees read the particular Sanskrit and Bengali verses, Sripad Vaishnav Maharaj illuminates their meaning and mentions illuminating anecdotes from his early experiences in Krishna Consciousness as well as his long years of personal service to Srila Govinda Maharaj.
