Know More about the Course

The Upanishads also referred as Vedanta represent the peak of vedic philosophical thought. Upanishads are often referred to as Jnana kanda and the rest of the vedas as Karma kanda. Upanishads are the supreme literature in the history of Indian culture. They have played a prime role in the growth of spiritual ideas in ancient India and are widely known all over the world. Upanishads are the spiritual core of Bharata. Prasthanatrayi are the foundations of Indian philosophy and upanishads are counted as Shruti prasthana. 10 Upanishads are considered as main upanishads. They are – ईश, केन, कठ, प्रश्न, मुण्डक, माण्डूक्य, तैत्तिरीय, ऐतरेय, छान्दोग्य and बृहदारण्यक.
This course sheds light on some glimpses of Upanishad’s glorious vision in a way that leaves us hankering for more. Along the way, we will gain familiarity with some of the most important themes and ideas of Vedanta such as the guru-shishya parampara, the spectrum of approaches of karma-upasana-jnana, a framing of self-knowledge in the context of practical modern life, and some hints about how to approach a further detailed study of the Vedantic literature. The topics of the various sessions will blend into one another, examining some key ideas and terms. Then picking certain shlokas and ideas from important Upanishads such as the Katha, Taittareya, Shwetashwatara, Chadogya we shall illustrate ideas which helps us to get a sense for the style and the message of the Upanishads.
