SAT-DARSHANA — Swami Tattvavidananda
Mundakopanisad 3:2 — Swami Pratyagbodhananda
Sri Ramana Maharshi’s vision of nonduality and his deep inquiry (vicara) resulting in that vision are clearly presented in his composition Sat-darsaham, the Vision of Reality. Based firmly in the sastra, this inquiry uses several traditional methods (prakria) of arriving at the truth. In this course, Swami Tattvavidananda will handle these methods to unfold the vision so eloquently expressed in Sat-darsaham.
Kahola Brāhmaṇam (Br.U. 3.5.1)
Here, Ṛṣi Kahola approaches sage Yājñavalkya asking to be taught Brahman which is immediate and evident (sākṣāt aparokṣāt) and is the self of all. Yājñavalkya answers briefly and decisively, then teaches the things that are to be renounced and various levels of understanding of what he has taught. All these would be the outcome of a complete understanding. As such, they are also necessary conditions for assimilating the teaching that was imparted to Ṛṣi Kahola.
