JPS Archives is the Official Archives of His Holiness Jayapataka Swami.
The archives was officially established in 2008 in Sri Mayapur, District of Nadia, West Bengal.
These recordings are the collected instructions of His Holiness Jayapataka Swami and are a gift to his disciples and well-wishers. We hope that you will relish them and share them with others.
The collection of these Audio recordings began in the late 1970s and have continued up until today. The originals were recorded onto cassette tapes until the early 2000s.
In the 1980s, His Grace Balabhadra Bhattacharya das Adhikari convinced His Holiness Jayapataka Swami of the importance of recording these classes so that many of the devotees around the world could hear and share the nectar.
The recordings were done by volunteers in real world environments so there will be a lot of ambient sounds in many of them. But this only add to their authenticity.
We have tried to capture and improve the quality of these recordings to make sure you are able to hear nicely.
Video collection began in the late 1980s and has continued as well. We have uploaded many hundreds of videos to YouTube and will be adding transcriptions from these classes to the database. When we do this there will be embedded players for you to follow along with the transcriptions.
We are also in the process of digitizing many videos captured onto tapes - some VHS, some Hi-8 and some Mini-DV. This is also an enormous task.
We ask for the blessings of the devotees to be able to do this nicely in the service of our beloved Gurudeva His Holiness Jayapataka Swami.
Photos and documents -
As we are able to include them, we will be adding documents to the database. Photos will have to be linked since they can slow things down if included on the webpages.
We have tried to make this database easy to use and fast to download into your browser. For that reason the pages are simple and mostly text-based.
