Why should I do this Course?

Tattvabodha is one of the preliminary texts to be studied on Vedanta that provides basic definitions of the Vedantic terminologies that are essential prior to entering the study of other prakarana-granthas, as well as treatises such as the Bhagavad Gita or the Upanishads. It therefore serves as a good foundation text to one’s study of Vedanta. .
