The Bhaktivedanta Educational and Research Institute is a non-profit organization in Ljubljana at Žibertova ulica 27 in lower Šiška. The mission of the institute is to develop and spread a mature and holistic understanding of our reality through the integration of modern science and ancient Vedic spirituality. The word bhaktivedanta has a very significant meaning for the Bhaktivedanta Institute. The word vedanta consists of two words, the word veda (knowledge) and anta (final conclusion, summary) and means the pinnacle of knowledge, pure understanding, or correct critical evaluation. The word bhakti, on the other hand, means loving, selfless, and devotional service to the transcendental, personified origin of everything.

In this way we can see how the word bhaktivedanta holistically combines the ideas of the highest scientific elements with the highest spiritual values. The result is a new transhumanist paradigm that pragmatically embraces both human material and spiritual existential needs. Our vision is to enthusiastically awaken the integral transformation of the worldview of our members and guests. So do you. Join us!
