    The course material and the Webinar sessions were of great help. However, there should be clarity on when we are expected to give exams.

    The course leads you gently, but thoroughly, into Vedanta. The quality of the written lessons is excellent: Inspiring and relevant. What you get out of the course depends largely on what effort you put in. But the team are there to support you along the way. Thoroughly impressed so far (lesson 14).

    Excellent knowledge content. The challenge lies in putting it all into practise until it becomes integrated with oneself.

    It was a window towards our ancient knowledge and it made me crave for more wisdom from scriptures. Created deep interest in Vedantha-Upanidhidic literature.

    Very nice and explained well. Want some provision to clear doubts as well. I would love to have these courses in other Bhartiya bhasha. Its an irony of western education system that we have to learn our own paramaparik Gyan through foreign language even though we have so many beautiful and rich language than English!
