Jiva Institute aims to make the wisdom contained in ancient Sanskrit texts accessible to everyone. Scholars at Jiva are working on the translations of various Sanskrit works in philosophy, grammar, theology, literature, music, drama, and poetry. Jiva Institute is an independent publishing house for Vedic works and topics that connect science and spirituality, eastern and western cultures, and traditional and contemporary thought. We also translate Sanskrit books upon request.
Dr. Satyanarayana Dasa has dedicated himself to translating and commenting on the Sat Sandarbhas, which is the magnum opus of Jiva Gosvami, the medieval Vaishnava saint of Vrindavan from whom the Jiva Institute derives its name. These books give a systematic explanation of the theology and philosophy of the Gaudiya Vedanta School. Sat Sandarbha has never before been translated into English in its entirety. Satyanarayana Das Babaji has completed the translation and commentary of the Six Sandarbhas into English, of which four out of six have already been published in a new edition and the remaining two will be published over the next three years.
