Foundation Course | Session 2: Vedanta for Initiaties and Beginners
April 5 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Vedanta is a knowledge of life and living. The original texts in which this knowledge is contained are called the Vedas, Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita. However these text may be difficult to understand directly. Additionally, one may need an understanding of the fundamental concepts of life and living beforehand. The Vedanta syllabus serves this purpose. A systematic, methodical course of study guiding one from basic principles to higher truths of life. The 4 week program will outline the literature authored and commented on by Swami Parthasarathy. These books are the literature that will be used in the weekly classes. The program will commence with an explanation of Vedanta followed by three sessions providing a summary of each of the books and concluding with an orientation.
Session 2: Vedanta for Initiaties and Beginners
Outline of The Fall of the Human Intellect and Governing Business and Relationships
The study of Vedanta starts with The Fall of the Human Intellect. The human intellect is the all important equipment within you. The intellect is that which controls the impulses of the mind and actions of the body. 10 Chapters detailing what the intellect is and the consequences of not develping the intellect. With a developed intellect one is able to apply the right values in one’s daily life. The second book in the syllabus is Governing Business and Relationships which contains 11 Chapters. With a developed intellect one can think originally and do away with mechanical, routine practices set by our predecessors. .
