Sat-darsanam — Swami Tattvavidananda
Sri Ramana Maharshi’s vision of nonduality and his deep inquiry (vicara) resulting in that vision are clearly presented in his composition
Sat-darsanam, the Vision of Reality. Based firmly in the Sastra, this inquiry uses several traditional methods (prakriya) of arriving at the truth. In this course, Swami Tattvavidananda will handle these methods to unfold the vision so eloquently expressed in Sat-darsanam.
Atmanastu kamaya (Brhhadaranyaka Upanisad 2.4.1 ff. and 4.5.2 ff.) — Swami Pratyagbodhananda
We can understand the importance given to Yajnavalkya’s teaching to his wife Maitreyi, since it is given in two places in the Brhadhranyaka Upanisad. Beginning with the statement that “everything one loves is loved only for one’s own sake,” he draws her attention to this little noticed fact and elaborates upon it. This sparks her inquiry and leads to a complete unfoldment of the vision of nonduality, which fulfills the seeking of a human being.
