The much awaited Jaimini Scholar Program Advanced Classes (JSPA) are to be initiated, just as in the past, from makara saṅkrānti (14 January), 2015. Teachings in the JSPA will not be restricted to the Upadeśa of Maharṣi Jaimini alone as these are advanced classes. The classes for JSPA-I are centred around studying some of the Upadeśa Sūtra in greater detail.



The JSPA course is open only for those Jaimini Scholars who have completed the JSP Year-4 and are already certified. In addition, it is by invitation only and the prerogative for the invitation is with Pt. Sanjay Rath.

In future years, Jaimini Scholars who are certified can recommend their students for this course, which will need to be seconded by two other Jaimini Scholars. Without this three Jaimini Scholar recommendation, candidates cannot be considered for admission.

Course Fees

A one-time course fee of £ 500 ($ 850) must be paid before the course date of 15 January, 2015. The course fee does not include travel, boarding, lodging or any other incidental or additional costs towards the contact course. Course Fee includes access to the course website for 2 years.

The contact classes should be attended by all participants for at least one week. Inability to participate at all, without a plausible excuse for absence, can result in non-invitation in the future years. All participants who cannot be present for the Contact Class must take prior leave of absence from the Course Teacher.

The Contact Course for 11 days shall commence from Thursday, 30 April to 10 May, 2015.
