Chinmaya International Foundation (CIF) announces an online camp on Tattvabodha by Swami Advayananda. Many are keen to delve into a study of the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads and the other key Vedantic texts but they are deterred by their unfamiliarity with Vedantic terminology. The camp on Tattvabodha will bridge this gap by explaining the key Vedantic terms and concepts thus providing the necessary stepping stone to enable progress to the main Vedantic texts.
