The Chinmaya International Foundation (CIF) already offers a Foundation Online Vedanta Course and a Postal Course. In spite of the overwhelming responses for these courses, there has been a growing need for an Advanced Course that gives an in-depth understanding of important Vedantic concepts. To fulfill this long-felt need, CIF is pleased to announce its Advanced Vedanta Online and Postal Courses. The materials of study for both Online & Postal courses are the same, whether correspondence is via email or post.
Course Objectives and Rewards
The primary aim of this one-year Home Study Course is to provide clarity and depth to your Vedantic study. All important Vedantic concepts dealt with in the Prakarana Granthas, such as Vivekachudamani, Atma Bodha, Tattva Bodha, Vakya Vritti and Panchadashi are covered in a series of 24 detailed lessons.
The study of the Advanced Vedanta Course will give you an in-depth understanding of Vedanta with a thorough grounding of the basic terminologies and concepts. Reading of the scriptures is to be undertaken hand-in-hand with subjective discipline. This alone will lead to spiritual progress. The Course explains the sadhanas (spiritual disciplines) that are to be followed in our day-to-day life. These sadhanas will bestow purity of mind and single pointedness of intellect that are most required for peace and happiness in life. You will also learn the true meaning of meditation and learn the art of its practice.
Any individual who seeks to know the Vedantic Philosophy and earnestly wishes to apply it in his life is welcome to join the Advanced Vedanta Course. Sanskrit knowledge is not required for this course. This is not a course for mere academic knowledge, it is rather aimed at transforming oneself.
