Prabhupada and devotees in Vrindavan 1972

Hare Krishna devotees take up a serious study of sacred literature. The holy Vedic texts are believed to be preserved through disciplic succession, and thus its purity remains.

  1. The main books that Hare Krishna devotees study are:
  2. The Bhagavad-gita, the highly praised song of God
  3. The Srimad Bhagavatam, or Bhagavata Purana, a treatise on the pastimes of God
  4. The Caitanya Caritamrta, a literary work that focuses on Lord Caitanya and His philosophy

Srila Prabhupada wanted to provide opportunities for all people to gain a systematic understanding of the profound Vaishnava philosophy. Thus, his followers have developed systematic studies of the texts fundamental to Krishna consciousness such as a preliminary Bhakti-sastri course that focuses on the famous Sanskrit texts Bhagavad-gita and Sri Isopanisad along with later writings, the Bhakti-rasamrita Sindu (Nectar of Devotion) and Upadeshamrita (Nectar of Instruction).

Srila Prabhupada, in his purports, also include readings from other canonical Hindu texts such as the Rg Veda, the Atharva Veda, the Kena Upanisad, the Katha Upanisad, the Brhadaranyaka Upanisad, the Svetasvatara Upanisad, the Mahabharata, and many more.

The Hare Krishna philosophy perfectly synthesizes Hindu schools of thoughts and concludes that God is a Supreme Being, and we are part and parcels of Him, same in quality, but eternally subservient to Him.
