Online Glories of the Upanishads: Taittiriya Upanishad
with Swami Jnaneswariananda
July 25 - 30, 2021
There is no book in this world which is so thrilling and illuminating as the Upanishads. The Upanishads contain the spiritual experiences of the Seers and Rishis of India.
Constant study of the Upanishads will elevate your mind and help you to reach the first stage of Jnana. Meditation on Om with meaning and feeling will enable you to attain Self-realisation.
May you become a Jivanmuktas
The Taittiriya Upanishad , considered to be one of the Principal Upanishads, presents doctrines of Vedanta in elementary terms. Often quoted in later philosophical works, the Taittiriya Upanishad contains the basic tenets of Vedanta philosophy. The ideas of this Upanishad are found in others, but here they are systematically explained.
This course will serve as an introduction to study of the Upanishads and the Advaita Vedanta Philosophy espoused in these ancient texts. The verses of the Taittiriya Upanishad will be discussed with the meaning and significance explained. For those already familiar with Vedanta, this will be an opportunity to go deeper into the intellectual inquiry these teachings inspire.
