The International Society for Krishna Consciousness
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Spiritual life begins with hearing from saintly persons. Sanga is a Sanskrit word which refers to a society or an association. E-sanga is a place where spiritual practitioners can listen to and associate with saintly persons.
E-sanga offers a unique opportunity for the sādhaka (practitioner of a spiritual discipline) to actively participate in live classes and seminars in a systematic study from the cream of Vedic literature.
Caitanya Caritāmṛta is accepted as the most authoritative presentation of Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava philosophy in the form of an 18-volume biography of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya. It is a great scholastic work in which the author quotes from no less than 60 other books to establish the profound teachings of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
E-sanga seminars cover a wide variety of subject matters, including summary biographies of great saints and Avataras, explanations of various schools of philosophy, comparative religious studies, current events within ISKCON, celebrations of Vaiṣṇava holidays, the songs of the Acaryas, works of the Goswami’s, and the Founder-Acarya Series.

At least 27 biographies were written on the life of Caitanya Mahāprabhu after His disappearance. Of these, perhaps no other was more loved and authoritative than the Caitanya Mangala, also known as the Caitanya Bhāgavata. This massive work is accompanied by elaborate commentaries by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Thakur.
Hearing and inquiring from authoritative sources is most crucial to spiritual realization
Meditating upon the relevance and practical application of what has been learned is the next step.
Theoretical knowledge is not enough. One must apply and practice to gain direct experience.
To fully assimilate what has been learned every participant teaches what they have learned.
We are E-sanga and have been broadcasting almost 10 years
E-sanga began on May 3, 2010, on the Big Island of Hawaii, where it is still based today. The concept to start an online community was spawned from a deep need to hear transcendental sound on a daily basis in the association of like-minded individuals. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Individuals can only advance with the help of other, more advanced souls. Spiritual life ultimately culminates in reviving our original relationship with the Supreme Being as well as with all other living beings. Therefore e-sanga was created to stimulate loving relationships between the Lord and His devotees and to foster an atmosphere in which we can lift each other to higher states of consciousness. This is the meaning of Krishna Consciousness and the purpose of e-sanga.
