It is a strange bridge from your stupid ego to the Infinite Reality.
Each time you take two steps, the bridge behind you is burnt.
-Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda
The central philosophical concepts of Atmavidya (or knowledge of the Self) in Hinduism are contained in ancient Sanskrit texts called the Upanishads, a part of Vedas. Upanishads are also known as Vedanta. The sacred doctrine is known to grant freedom from suffering and lead to the state of unbridled happiness. Riddled with seemingly contradictory and cryptic statements, the secret of Vedanta can be unraveled only by Masters who have translated theoretical knowledge to experiential abidance.
Prepare for a journey that will defy and challenge your current perspective on life. Discover a deeper meaning to living. Through a series of week-long lectures once a month, Swami Ishwarananda will demystify the principal Upanishads. Swamiji recently finished the overview of Kathopanishad, Mundakopanishad, Ishavasyopanishad and Prashnopanishad.
Next, Swamiji will unravel the cryptic mantras of Kena Upanishad in a week-long lecture series. This Upanishad elaborately talks about the nature of Brahman, the Supreme Self. The Upanishad emphasizes that the nature of the Highest Reality is so subtle that even the gods are not able to comprehend. How then should we understand that which is beyond all words?
This is your chance to learn about that which is indescribable! A must-attend week!
