Sambandha refers to the eternal constitutional relationships between God, the individual souls, and matter. As we begin a spiritual quest, we first need to know our position and the purpose of life. In this module, students learn about the essential spiritual science underlying our present lives and are introduced to ISKCON; its Founder-Acharya: A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada; and the Gaudiya-Vaisnava tradition of bhakti-yoga.
Prayojana means the ultimate goal, or devotional love for the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You will discover, through a variety of resources, what it means to be truly liberated, and you will learn all about Krishna, who is the source of all existence and the all-attractive benefactor and enchanter of every living being.
Finally, in the abhidheya module, the process of bhakti yoga will be discussed: acting according to the real relationship between humanity and divinity. Once we understand our true identity and the goal, love for Krishna, we are actually ready to ask how to reach it. Spiritual predecessors have scrutinized Vedic texts and given a practical step-by-step process that helps us realize ourselves and our purpose in this life – offering our hearts in selfless devotional service.
