One-week Vedanta Course for Adults
September 16 @ 8:00 pm - September 23 @ 10:15 am
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.
Rishi Angiras, concluding his teaching of brahmavidya to Saunaka, sums up the essence of the vision of oneness in this final section of the Mundakopanisad. He then elaborates on the important requirements for gaining the vision, stressing objectivity, clarity, and mental discipline. In the final verses he tells us the result of the knowledge, the contentment and freedom with which one lives one’s life in this world. And finally, he relates what happens to such a person at the time of the death of the body.
