Sat-darsanam — Swami Tattvavidananda
Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi’s vision of nonduality and his deep inquiry (vicāra) resulting in that vision are clearly presented in his composition, Sat-Darśanam, the Vision of Reality. Based firmly in the śāstra, this inquiry uses several traditional methods (prakriyā) of arriving at the truth. In this course, Swami Tattvavidananda will handle these methods to unfold the vision so eloquently expressed in Sat-Darśanam.
Kaivalyopaniṣad — Swami Pratyagbodhananda
The advaita tradition holds that for freedom from all that is undesirable, the understanding of Kaivalyopaniṣad is enough (moksāya kaivalyam eva alam). Here, Ṛṣi Aśvalāyana properly approaches and requests Lord Brahmāji for knowledge of Brahman, the limitless. First teaching him the means for making oneself receptive to the knowledge, Lord Brahmāji then unfolds the vision using various methods. In these mantras, some of which are used in daily worship, we recognize those that also appear in other Upaniṣads and the Bhagavad Gītā.
Lord Brahmāji’s comprehensive teaching also includes the means of assimilating this knowledge and removing factors that may inhibit clarity of vision.
