Dakshinamurthy Stotram Lecture Series in Tamil by Swami Asutoshananda

The Dakshinamurthy stotram is a small hymn written by Adi Shankara. The stotram by no means is a mere eulogy to Lord Dakshinamurthy. It conceals within it’s simple verses, very deep and profound aspects of Advaita Vedanta.

The wisdom conveyed by its verses can bring about a radical transformation of one’s world view by removing ignorance about the world, about God, and about oneself. This transformative knowledge is capable of destroying the mula avidya (fundamental ignorance) that is the ultimate cause for all suffering. Thus the Daskhinamurti Stotram is moksha shastra, a scriptural teaching that can by itself lead to one’s liberation.

Swami Asutoshananda, a monk of the Ramakrishna Order will deliver the weekly lecture in Tamil every Monday at the Math Auditorium. The lecture will begin at 5.30 pm. All are welcome. Please refer to the monthly calendar for more information

Kathopanishad Lectures in Tamil by Swami Suprajnananda

All Upanishads are written in Sanskrit, and the commentary by Acharya Shankara is taken as the most authentic. Upanishads are based on the dialogue between a realized soul acting as the Teacher, Rishi, and a sincere seeker of Truth who approaches Him as a disciple. In Katha Upanishad the teacher is Yama – Death Himself – and the student is a young Nachiketa in his teens. This Upanishad is one of the most popular Upanishads for its simplicity and clarity in making the subject matter regarding the highest truth easily comprehensible. It consists altogether of 120 verses.

Swami Suprajnananda, a monk of the Ramakrishna Order delivers a weekly lecture in Tamil on Kathopanishad, every Friday at the Math Auditorium. The lecture will begin at 5.30 pm. All are welcome. Please refer to the monthly calendar for more information
