Krishna West teaches advanced spiritual knowledge from the Bhagavad-gītā and Śrīmad-bhāgavatam and practices a form of devotional yoga called Krishna bhakti. This wisdom derives from the ancient Sanskrit texts of the advanced Vedic civilization, which thousands of years ago brought many gifts to the world such as yoga, meditation, animal rights, and a vision of all living things as divine parts of God.

As one of the oldest, most cherished treatises on the philosophy and practice of yoga, the Bhagavad-gītā explains that we are all eternal spiritual beings. We have always existed and always will exist. Only our temporary body is born and dies. Compelled by the reactions to our worldly actions (karma) we wander through many lives until we clearly grasp our eternal identity as souls, and our loving relationship with an infinitely beautiful, all-knowing, and ever youthful God, Krishna. Because the practice of Krishna bhakti leads to a profound and personal relationship with God and all living beings, the Bhagavad-gītā describes it as the highest stage of spiritual yoga and the joyful summit of religion.
