With practice, the mind will be ushered to a deeper realm of stillness. Such a mind gains the capability for a lofty vision and cannot be influenced by anything. As the practice of meditation deepens, one can resolutely face the problems in life and gradually become a yukta, one…

Topic: Mundakopanisad(contd.)

Bṛhadaraṇyaka-bhaṣyam 2.1.19 onward This chapter of the Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad reveals the nondual vision of the Upaniṣads by teaching the reality of what is generally taken to be real, satyasya satyam.  In these classes on Ādi Śaṅkarācārya's commentary for this chapter, Swami Viditatmananda will unfold that reality as the self.

Swami Viditatmananda Muṇḍakopaniṣad 2.2.5 onward Ṛṣi Angira, in imparting the vision of oneness to Śaunaka, uses the method of ‘cause-effect’ (kāraṇa-kārya).  This method is the most crucial in teaching Vedānta, because through it non-duality (advaita) can be arrived at. And only in the understanding that there is no second thing here, only myself (sarvātmabhāva), is there release from the notion that I am a struggling individual. In this section, Ṛṣi Angira elaborates fully on how everything has come from, abides…

Saylorsburg, PA 18353 United States

Topic: Adhyāsa (projection) in Vedānta The apparent contradiction between the truth of oneself as limitless and non-dually whole and one’s everyday reality mired in fear and sorrow is due to what Ᾱdi Śaṅkarācārya calls adhyāsa or subjective projection in his famous introduction to the Brahmasūtra. In this retreat, we will study the introductory bhāṣya of Ᾱdi Śaṅkarācārya in detail with a view to gaining a clearer understanding of the orders of reality – especially  īśvara-sṛṣṭi and jīva-sṛṣṭi – and understanding…

How does one instill the values of Indian culture in our children growing up here? In India, the religious culture, which touches every aspect of one's life, was imbibed by osmosis from one's home and the immediate community. The situation is different here, however. To cultivate and understand the values and attitudes, the vaidika vision and view of life has to be taught to the children in a structured way.

Swami Tattvavidananda Bhakta and Bhakti Is bhakti an act or is it a fact? When it is an act, I am a bhakta and there is an altar of bhakti, whose presence in my life I am recognizing. This implies a lot of understanding.  When bhakti is a fact, it is fulfilled in the bhakta being the bhakti. For this, a quantum leap in understanding is required.

Thanksgiving Family Vedānta Course with Swami Tattvavidananda

November 28 @ 8:00 pm - December 1 @ 1:00 pm UTC-5
Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, 651 Route 115
Saylorsburg, PA 18353 United States

Topic : Vedanta and Meditation Meditation plays an integral part in a seeker's quest for truth. To receive the knowledge of Vedānta, one requires reverential equanimity in all situations, mastery over the ways of one's mind, and grace. The first is achieved by karma-yoga. The other two are gained by meditation, defined in the śāstra as a mental activity with īśvara as its topic. Swamiji will offer detailed in-depth guidance on meditation that is consistent with the vision of Vedānta.
