Upanishad Series: Kathopanishad Lectures (Conclusion) by Swami Ishwarananda

Saturday, Oct 27, 2018

Time: 7:00am – 10:00am

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 has started the series with lectures on the Kathopanishad. This Upanishad is a famous dialogue between the young seeker Nachiketa and Lord Yama (Lord of Death). Nachiketas wants to know whether there is life after death. Lord Yama answers in the affirmative, and elaborates upon the journey to unconditional happiness.

This will be the concluding week of the Kathopanishad two-part series.

Everyone is welcome to attend the series. Please be seated in the hall 5 minutes before start of lecture.

Pre-requisite is an inquisitive mind.

Monday – Friday, October 22-26  ♦  7:30 pm – 8:45 pm
