Vedanta: Teachings from the Upanishads on the Essential Freedom of the Self

Swami Brahmananda

10 WEEKLY SESSIONS, Thursdays, 6:00-7:45pm ET

Course Description:

Do you seek a new vision of who you are, what the world is and the goal of life, to be free from limiting ideas and to have a deeper understanding of the teachings and practices of Advaita Vedanta?

Join this 10 weeks course with Swami Brahmananda to learn the methods for attaining knowledge of the ever free Self, our own true nature, and how to overcome emotional attachments and addictions and erroneous misconceptions about yourself and the world. You will learn tools to strengthen your power of spiritual discernment, clarity of vision and equanimity in life’s challenges, based on the Upanishads which form the foundation of Vedanta. The teachings are meant for new and experienced students alike.

The oneness of all existence is the message which Vedanta teaches. The Upanishads form the basis of Vedanta. 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.
