We all have questions about who we are and why we are here. Ancient yogis found answers to life’s most important questions, preserved in the Vedas. Vedanta is the culmination of the knowledge contained in the Vedas.

This practical and inspiring course will offer the key basics of Vedanta theory and teach Vedanta practice by providing valuable practical instructions. It is a wonderful opportunity for those who are new to Vedanta to study with the ashram acting director and primary teacher of Vedanta philosophy in the Teacher Training Courses. Those with prior knowledge of Vedanta are also welcome to participate and expand their study.

Through Vedanta, enter into the study of the nature of Reality, which is our own true nature. It is the science which raises us above the plane of worldliness. In order to attain absolute freedom, one should know the nature and cause of bondage and the way of removing it. One should make a searching study of life and know its mysteries. Vedanta offers a path for doing so.
