What you’ll learn:
The oneness of all existence is the message which Vedanta teaches.
Vedanta is Brahma-vidya. The Upanishads form the basis of Vedanta. These texts enter into the study of Brahman or absolute reality. It is the science that raises us above the plane of bondage and suffering and shows the path to freedom. Vedanta reveals the essential nature of the self which is ever free and blissful. The study of Vedanta frees us from all limiting ideas about oneself and the world.
This second portion of the course will contain more teachings from the Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita to further and deepen the study and contemplation of the students. 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.
For enrolled students, a video recording will be available after each class in the event you miss a class or would like to review the content.
It is possible to register and take the course at any time. You can catch up on any classes you miss with the recordings.
