Welcome to the Bhaktivedanta College's database of articles. Here you will find a growing data base of articles in PDF and HTML format (see below) in various Vedic disciplines several of them translated into different languages (Croatian, French, German, and Russian) . If you are interested in submitting an article or paper please read our publication standards before submitting. If you are interested in translating an article into another language please contact us so that we can tell our style sheet preferences.

For information about having your Jyotish articles published please consult the Jyotish publication standards.

Please note that many of the articles are only available in the Adobe Acrobat Portable Document File (PDF) format. Thus, to view these files you must possess the FREE Acrobat Reader plug-in for your browser, this will allow you to read the files on this site as well as on many other sites. Acrobat Reader is the industry standard for viewing documents in their original form. To get a FREE copy of Acrobat Reader click on the icon below (opens a new browser window). Please note that Adobe Acrobat Reader is often upgraded so be sure that you have the latest version.

If you are new to using Acrobat PDFs you should know that they work slightly different from regular web pages. We have optimized our PDFs to be viewed on the web for quick viewing. However, because of the vagaries of the Internet it may be that it will not operate in the web optimized mode for your particular browser configuration. In this case the Acrobat file can only be read after it has been completely loaded. This means that with larger files it may seem that your browser is doing nothing and you may think that it has hung up. Just be patient (they don't call it the World Wide Wait for nothing), the file is loading. Wait time will depend on the length of the file, speed of your connection and Internet congestion.

Another option would be to right-click on the link to the PDF file and save it to disk and read it off line. It is the experience of many that PDF files are actually better read off line.
