Vedanta Week with Sri Swamini Svatmavidyanandaji

Weeklong Morning Sessions

Tue-Fri: April 8-11, 2014 Mornings 7 - 8am

Topic: Adi Sankara’s Siva-Aparadha-Ksamapana Stotram

Venue: 390 Lamme Chase, Duluth, GA 30097

This is a famous prayer of atonement for one’s omissions and commissions. Composed as a praise-song for Lord Siva, it is an excellent way to let go of one’s sense of guilt and other emotional turmoil that often comes in the way of self-knowledge.

Weeklong Evening Sessions

Mon-Fri: April 7-11, 2014 Evenings 6:45 – 8:30 pm

Topic: Mantras from the Kathopanishad - Part II Canto 3 Verses 1-4

The Kathopanishad is an inspiration for the Bhagavad Gita. The Gita has borrowed heavily from the Kathopanishad in the way that it states the vision, and also in terms of the prescribed lifestyle for assimilating the knowledge through the chariot allegory, the rathakalpana. In these verses, appearing towards the end of the Kathopanishad, we see the inspiration for the opening verses of the 15th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita. Lord Yama, the teacher in the Kathopanishad uses the image of the upside down tree to illustrate samsara, a topsy-turvy life of inverted priorities and missed opportunities as one infinitely pursues the finite. These verses also speak of how to overcome samsara by knowledge.

Topic: Selection of Vedantic Verses from Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 10, Chapter 14 Verses 22-29

The Srimad Bhagavatam is a very holy text composed by Bhagavan Veda Vyasa. It recounts the avataras 

of Lord Visnu, and narrates his glories and avataras. The tenth canto, dealing with the life and glories of 

Lord Krishna is highly regarded as a treatise for gaining both bhakti and self-knowledge. We shall 

be studying seven verses of this sacred text.
