Self-discovery and spiritual quest is as old as humanity itself. What is the meaning of life? Is this life all there is? How do I find happiness and purpose? How do I connect with spirit?
With Bhaktiyoga.ca we strive to stimulate mind, senses and spirit. As fellow “seekers” we welcome any comments or questions.
Whatever your current existential stance, we hope that this website will offer something to enrich your journey of self-discovery.
The oldest knowledge base in the world is from the Vedas of India. This has been preserved by ancient Sanskrit texts such as Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam. Prominent Western thinkers like Arthur Schopenhauer, Erwin Schrodinger, Albert Einstein, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, David Bohm and many others, were greatly inspired by the Vedic worldview and by the profoundly deep thinking that they encountered in these texts. Similarly our writers utilize the wisdom, perception and insight found in these timeless Vedic manuscripts to interpret so many questions about the reality of life even in current times.
The Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam were translated into English by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (1896-1977), the foremost proponent and representative of Gaudiya Vaishnava Vedanta of the late twentieth century. Through his singular achievements, he highlighted the relevance of the timeless wisdom of this ancient but eternally relevant message.
