@deebuls Depends a bit on what your background knowledge is. Bishop's Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning covers probabilistic modelling and variational Bayesian approximation to some extent:
Gelman's Bayesian Data Analysis is a great book on Bayesian modelling. It doesn't cover VB at all, only MCMC methods, but the general modelling principles are the same, that is, how to construct your model etc:
otherwise, i don't remember any particular sources now. perhaps, if you search for "bayesian hierarchical modelling" etc you'll find some useful sites
