Teacher: Jagadananda Das
The Gopāla Campū is a poetic work of Jīva Gosvāmī which depicts the activities of Kṛṣṇa in Vṛṇdāvana. This course focuses on the introduction and Chapter One of the book, the description of Goloka within the Goloka-vilāsa section. The text is studied in the original Sanskrit with many linguistic explanations and references, rich in information about the historical, cultural and philosophical background.
Those who have not developed a sense of detachment towards the material world – material possessions, material relations, material power and position – have not truly understood the material world. Therefore, they will continue in the cycle of birth and death until they learn it.
