The seventh chapter of the Chandogya Upanishad is the famous dialogue between the great sage Sanatkumara and his younger brother, turned disciple, Narada.
Narada approaches Sanatkumara, saying that he knows all the Vedas and ancillary literature, but still has not overcome sorrow. Naradji being such an exalted sage, despite possessing all types of secular knowledge, how come he was still not experiencing everlasting joy?
Is it not that to be fulfilled and successful one should be expert in some worldly subject?
We have expertise, technology, qualifications to enhance our so-called standard of living, and yet with a gush of some situation we fall into a pitiful sorrowful state. Therefore one should ask the question - Is there a knowledge that is existing which can lead me to eternal fulfilment and effortless joy?
Swami Abhedanandaji will delve deep into our inquires of life by expounding the secret principles hidden the in 7th Chapter of Chandogya Upanishad. To find out the answer, join us in this once in a lifetime opportunity to listen about that ultimate knowledge in which one gains limitless fulfilment!

Vishnu Shatpadi Stotram is composed by Bhagavan Adi Sankara. This glorious composition by Bhagavan Adi Shankara is soaked in devotion for Lord Vishnu. Swami Abhedanandaji will explain, in his most enamouring style, the gamut of spiritual sadhanas mentioned in these verses.

Some of the topics that will be tocuhed are: The purpose of prayerrituals and spiritualitypleasure and happiness, the Lord and His avataras and sharanagati...

The Advaita Vedanta Immersive is an opportunity for seekers to attain clarity and appreciation of essential and deep concepts of Advaita-vedānta in the span of one week. This year the text for study is the second sūtra of the Brahmasūtra (janmādyadhikaraṇa).


For attending this programme, you should have been already introduced to Advaita-vedānta and must have studied at least a few basic texts of Advaita-vedānta like the Bhagavad-gītā (at least a few chapters), a few Upaniṣads and some prakaraṇa-granthas. Knowledge of Sanskrit is not compulsory though it will be advantageous.


The one week program consists of lectures, time for personal reflection, discussion groups, doubt clarification sessions, and demonstrating the understood concepts through written samples and meditation. These written samples are checked by facilitators and returned to the students. The pedagogy is the triple means of śravaṇa, manana and nididhyāsana.
