The gist of this course is this: each member will bring the twenty most favorite quotes from Srila Prabhupada, will explain them, and will tell, also in writing, why and how this verse is so important to us all today.
So, that is twenty best favorite quotes, ie not necessarily from his books directly, quotes from his conversations and lectures and books, to be submitted one at a time, or all at once, but there had better be quality and thoughtfulness shown here, no plagiarisms without quoting the source, as this is an upper level course, seminar. Each item must also have at least 250 words of commentary, but not more than 5000 words per verse, please.
We hope to see some leadership and originality and synthesis of ideas learned earlier, and put within realistic scope and vision for now and the future of yourself and of others around us. Poetry is accepted, as are artistic images.
WHAT is important to you as a devotee? What verses hit home with YOU? Why? What will you do to follow through for real?
I welcome our usual heroes, striking through the first set of our courses to get the coveted A.Bh S. after two or three years of gruelling scholasticism ! ~(>,' ) Now we have a new set of members and hope they will join our band of knights searching out the grail, the nectar of immortality. One can start doing course work at any time starting... NOW. 11: 14, March 29, 2013
