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’s.
There is no other literature in the world like Śrīmad Bhāgavatam. It is the essence of all Vedic literature. One who systematically studies this sacred text under able guidance is sure to become a God-realized soul by the end of reading the first 9 cantos.
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, the author quoting 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, currents events within ISKCON, celebration of Vaiṣṇava Holidays, the songs of the Acaryas, Works of the Goswami’s, and the Founder-Acarya Series.
Access a vast library of thousands of audio recordings, videos, images, slide shows, and study guides. We are constantly adding more assets to our library, so please feel free to check back often.
Bhagavad-gītā is accepted as the primer introduction to spiritual life covering knowledge of the self, God’s manaifestions in the spiritual and material worlds, the origin of the phenomenal world, the nature of time, and the workings of karma.
At least 27 biographies written on the life of Caitanya Mahāprabhu after His disappearance. Of these perhaps no other was more loved and authroitative they than the Caitanya Mangala, also known as the Caitanya Bhāgavata. This massive work is accompanied by elaborate commentaries by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Thakur.

Hello! We are E-sanga and have been broadcasting about 10 yrs
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 sum is greater than its parts. The individuals can only advance with the help of other more advanced souls. Spiritual life ultimately culminates reviving our original relationship with the Supreme Being as well as all other living beings in relationship to Him. Therefore, e-sanga was created to stimulate loving relationships between the Lord and His devotees and to foster an atmosphere were we can together lift each other to higher and higher states of conscoiusness. This is the meaning of Krishna Conscoiusness and the purpose of e-sanga.
