Hare Krishna.

Please, accept our humble obeisance.  All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

You are kindly invited to participate in the Hermeneutics course, Level 1, organized by the Śāstric Advisory Council (under the auspices of the ISKCON GBC).

The ISKCON Hermeneutics Course provides initial training in the discipline and methodology of how to appropriately study, assimilate, apply, explain, and perpetuate the teachings of guru-sādhu-śāstra. It embraces theory and method, underpinned by values.

It is based on the GBC approved Foundation Document. It uses traditional Vedic and Vaiṣṇava principles and tools, some of which are adapted specifically for ISKCON.

It is designed especially for ISKCON leaders, preachers, teachers, and those engaged in systematic study of śāstra (for example, bhakti-śāstrī courses), though all ISKCON members can benefit from it.

The course emphasizes:
* Respectful and constructive śāstric conversation
* Authentic understanding and explanation of śāstric conclusions
* Resolution of philosophical controversies within ISKCON
* Proficiency in addressing difficult or contentious śāstric statements
