Upanishad Course Online

The Upanishads reveal to us that in truth we are beyond life and death, good and bad; that we are the supreme Brahman, the highest Reality. Inclusive of all, excluding nothing, this ultimate Reality of life when realized through the triple means of shravana, manana and nididhyasana (listening, reflection and meditation) reveals the Self as source of all Bliss and Knowledge within. The entire universe becomes one’s own abode, and comes to be experienced as a glorious expression of the Self. Come revel in the Upanishads, bask in its knowledge, discover yourself and become fulfilled. What are you waiting for?

More about the Course

Course Author

The Course has been authored by Pūjya Swami Tejomayananda, the mentor and guide of the Chinmaya Mission Worldwide. Pujya Guruji, as he is reverentially and endearingly addressed in Chinmaya Mission, is a master of Vedāntic tradition and the Bhakti lore, and is a renowned teacher of Vedānta, as well as an author of many commentaries and independent treatises on Vedānta and Bhakti literature. This course indeed offers the crystallized, experiential wisdom and insights of Pūjya Guruji, with great depth and clarity, delivered with simplicity and ease of assimilation. It bears the understated elegance and excellence, simplicity and profundity, of which Pūjya Guruji is a living embodiment.

Course Eligibility

Being an advanced study that demands a deeper understanding of Vedanta applicants will benefit well if they have been already introduced to Vedānta, or must have studied at least a few prakaraṇa-granthas or basic texts of Vedānta. Since the Course is in English, the knowledge of Sanskrit is not a requirement. A sincere longing for Truth is however a significant eligibility and nothing betters it!

    A gist of all the upanishads given topic-wise, is unique by itself. Pujya Guruji has made the subject so clear and so very interesting. it is an immense pleasure to attend the course and broaden one's knowledge fortnight-by-fortnight. Pujya Swamiji Ved ji brings in his own clarity while expounding on the topics. He highlights the areas of importance in each of the areas and has an easy and interesting way of communicating his thoughts. Every discourse is a delight for me.
