Welcome to Jayapataka Swami Archives Multimedia.
We are the team at the JPS Archives in Mayapur, India.
The JPS Archives has been running in one form or another since about 1983. We were officially established as the JPS Archives in 2008 when both the audio and video portions of the ministry were moved here to unite their efforts.
Our sevices include:
the preservation of original recordings in various formats
this includes digitizing and distributing in many formats - online, printed, DVDs
the full digitization of audio and video formats from tapes collected over 3 decades
the creation, maintenance and improvement of the JPS Database at JPSArchives.net
this database will include all lecture or talk recordings we have and allow us to transcribe them into text format for publication
transcribing and producing books and media from these transcriptions
translating these transcriptions for wider distribution
distribution of the media produced through physical and digital channels - online, ebooks, books, DVDs, etc.

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.
Your humble servants
