The Essence of Vedanta




Text:  Shankaracharaya's Atma Bodh 

Atma Bodha, which presents the essence of Vedanta, was written in the Eighth Century by a great sage, Adi Shankacharya, to clarify the fundamental ideas revealed in the Upanishads, Vedanta’s source texts.  It is meant to be studied before an inquirer delves into the Upanishads proper because it teaches the whole system of Vedanta in a straightforward manner, avoiding elaborate arguments.  More: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-ENSlka8lgvIhss4C7n5hYPEqML4n_kP

Yoga of Love - Seminar - James Swartz



James, one of the most powerful voices for non-duality today, unveils the timeless knowledge of traditional Vedanta with clarity, candour and humor. 


Yoga of Love

The Yoga of Love (Narada Bhakti Sutras), an ancient Vedic text, is important for seekers everywhere because it reveals the identity between Vedanta, the path of Self-inquiry and Bhakti Yoga, the path of Devotional Love. It is equally important because is gives an excellent picture of a Self-actualized person, someone who understands the non-difference between freedom and unconditional non-dual love, the fruit of Self-inquiry.

Seminar 19th October 2019    11:00 – 16:00 hr.    By donation


Book Signing by James - Yoga der Liebe - 16:30 – 17:30 hr.
