Srila Prabhupada wrote, “Throughout the world there is no institution to impart education in the matter of spiritual understanding. So we are going to open a big center in Mayapur where this education will be internationally imparted. Students from all parts of the world will go there to take education in this important subject.” The Jaipur Institute aims to fulfill this desire of Srila Prabhupada by establishing Mayapur as a center for higher education and training.
The Jaipur Institute is a leading international centre for education and training in the theistic philosophy, practice and culture presented in the essential Vedic scriptures taught by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu as translated and explained by Srila Prabhupada.
The institute will also provide advanced study opportunities for understanding the writings of the predecessor acharyas, the primary books of the four Vaishnava sampradayas and important Vedic scriptures.
Students from all parts of the world will thus be trained to be qualified teachers, preachers, leaders, theologians and scholars to distribute the unique contributions of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to humanity.
