Bhagavad Geeta with Shankara Bhaashya

In these talks, Swamiji has delved deeply into every sloka, to give the listener an opportunity to study this divine text in the most comprehensive manner.

Atma Bodha

Atma Bodha

Atma bodha is a text prescribed for the Teevra Mumukshu : one who desires liberation in this very birth. For such a committed seeker who is inquiring into the reality of himself and the world, Bhagwan Sri Adi Shankaracharya has elaborated the core Vedantic principles through which one realises the essence of the Self, the ‘Atman’.

Pujya Swami Abhedanandaji describes beautifully what is the nature of Jiva, how action cannot take us to liberation but it is Knowledge alone that ferries the seeker across; and from various other logically irrefutable perspectives by expounding on the Supreme Knowledge.

What is Vedanta

What is Vedanta

In life we all wish for cessation of all sorrows-none of us want to feel limited therefore our entire life is in pursuit of getting rid of limitation. Vedanta says that limitation or sorrow is nothing but ignorance. If the problem is ignorance then the solution is knowledge. ‘Ved’ ‘anta’ what is the Essence of the Vedas is called Vedanta. Hence, Vedanta is the means to knowledge, that knowledge which brings us to the realisation of our true ,unlimited and Satchitananda nature. Swami Abhedananda in his inimitable style reveals this knowledge to us. Explaining simply how vedanta deals with our daily lives. Swamiji shows how we can move from sorrow to an uninterrupted flow of joy, through the understanding of right knowledge – which is VEDANTA.

Purush Sooktam

Purush Sooktam

“A hymn from the Vedas, “”Purush Sooktam”” is a sacred and deeply significant treatise on the manifestation of entire creation. In The srishti (creation), Ishwar, Yagna and Pure Self form the crux of these verses. Merely chanting this hymn is known to bestow miraculous benefits.
Keeping us constantly anchored in the Supreme Purush “”Lord Vishnu””, Swami Abhedananda with complete control slowly leads us through the progress of creation. The multiplicity through which the One expresses itself is explored with analytical precision. From the subtlest thought to the grossest object, the Supreme that pervades is lovingly brought out in its varied richness.”

Prashnopanishad

Prashnopanishad

Human intellect is designed to seek the Highest and search the best. It can never be satisfied until it goes to the ultimate cause of the whole universe. The worldly problems can never be solved completely; rather the perceiver of these problems which is the limited and suffering entity alone can be dissolved. Prashnopanishad, which is the Upanishad of Atharva Veda deals directly by indicating the false nature of the individual ego and True nature of the Unconditioned Self. It entails six seekers with six questions into their inquiry of the Truth, which leads them to the teacher-Pippalada Rishi who dispels their doubts. Swami Abhedananda’s scintillating explanation on each question and answer clears our doubt on the creation of the world, on life and it’s purpose that take us to fulfillment.

Mundakopanishad

Mundakopanishad

Mundakopanishad depicts that Highest Truth which is the real essence of every being, but until the Jeeva is enlightened he remains ignorant of this Pure Self. The same principle is illustrated in this Upanishad via two inseparable birds sitting on a tree. One bird being the untouched Pure consciousness or witness and other as the Jiva or enjoyer/ doer of samsara. The one who comprehends the Mundakopanishad is shaved or liberated from ignorance, and becomes the knower of the Highest Wisdom (Para Vidya or Brahman) without any ambiguity. Pujya Swami Abhedanandaji beautifully unravels each mantra, ushering us inward, introducing us to our own true Self: the Pure consciousness!
