About us

नमस्कारः! We are academics interested in Caitanya Vaiṣṇavism. This site is a result of our efforts to both understand and explain the esoteric concepts of bhakti in (a hopefully) accessible way. We are students of Jiva Institute which belongs to the traditional गदाधर परिवार (Gadādhara parivāra) that follows from गदाधर पंडित गोस्वामी (Gadādhara Pandit Goswami).
