What you’ll learn: 

  • The essential teachings of Jnana Yoga (the path of knowledge) in an easily approachable manner.
  • The true nature of reality
  • How a sage or a knower of the Self perceives the world

  • The state of liberation or freedom
  • The neti neti “not this, not this” method of analytical meditation


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. The Vedanta philosophy is the culmination of the knowledge contained in the Vedas and its practical analytical meditations are collected under the path of knowledge, known as Jnana Yoga.

Through Vedanta, enter into the study of the nature of Reality, which is our own true nature. It is the science that 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.

This inspiring course will offer the key basics of Jnana Yoga theory and practice by providing valuable instructions. It is a wonderful opportunity for those who are both new and experienced students of Vedanta to study with Swami Brahmananda, the ashram acting director and primary teacher of Vedanta philosophy in the Teacher Training Courses and Advanced Teacher Training Courses.

This program is offered live through Zoom webinar with the availability for students to interact through Q&A with the presenter.
