Vaishnavism weekend school

Online Weekend School
11–12 June

It’s estimated that two-thirds of Hindus identify as Vaishnavas – worshippers of Vishnu’s many forms. And like Hinduism itself, Vaishnavism is vast in its texts, practices, and traditions.

On this weekend we will untangle the many Vaishnava traditions and their multiple understandings of the nature of God (He, She, It, They).

Join some of the world’s best thinkers on the topic as we explore Vaishnavism: from the far South of India, through the works of the Alvar poets; to the Northwest Vaishnavas of Gujarat, birthplace of the Swaminarayan movement; and to the Chaitanya Vaishnavism of Bengal.
