Weekly studies

The only way way to learn Vedanta is to keep up with a consistent study of the subject. To help in this, Vedanta Institute Mumbai has weekly study groups. In the study groups one gets both the lecture as well as interaction in terms of questions and clarifications.

Some of the works of Swami Parthasarathy that are taken up by the study groups held by Vedanta Institute Mumbai are shown below. (You can click on the book to read its description.)

Stress, depression, disease in individuals and militancy, vandalism, terrorism in societies is threatening humanity with extinction. The book traces back the source of this impending disaster to the continual neglect of the human intellect. It highlights the fundamental difference between intelligence and intellect. Intelligence is acquired from schools and universities while the intellect is developed through one’s personal effort in thinking, reasoning, questioning before accepting anything. The book is designed to develop the intellect and save humanity from self-destruction.

Both the texts Bhaja Govindam and Atmabodha, were composed by Adi Shankaracharya in the eighth century.

The Bhaja Govindam highlights the two human motivations – acquisition and enjoyment. Its thirty-one verses point out the delusion in external pursuit and urges one to seek the supreme Self.

The Atmabodha is a picture gallery of word paintings in sixty-eight verses with deep philosophic themes. It contains several similes and metaphors taken from nature and life in general. The practical examples therein help a spiritual seeker to maintain the awareness of the supreme Reality in all walks of life.

The book expounds the ancient philosophy of Vedanta. It presents the eternal principles of life and living. Living is a technique that needs to be learnt and practised by one and all. The technique provides the formula for remaining active all through life while maintaining inner peace. It helps one develop a powerful intellect to meet the challenges of the world. Above all, the Treatise helps one evolve spiritually. It provides the knowledge and guidance to reach the ultimate in human perfection. The goal of Self-realisation.

The Gita brings to light the positive and negative tendencies that lie within you. They are your higher aspirations and lower desires in life that effect your evolution or devolution. Its chaste philosophy helps you conquer desire and regain the supreme Self. The state of Godhood. The book comprises the text, transliteration, word-meaning, translation and commentary. A useful contribution is the topic-wise division of each chapter which helps you capture the thought-flow and message therein.

The Bhagavad Gita literally means ‘Song of the Lord’. The text begins with the word dharma and ends with the word mama. Mama means ‘my’ and dharma , ‘essential Being’. Together they mean ‘my essential Being’. It signifies the theme of the Gita. That the purpose of life is to realise one’s essential Being. To discover the supreme Self within. Attain spiritual Enlightenment.
