Panchadasi by Swami Vidyaranya Course (All 15 Chapters)

July 28 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until November 24, 2019


Panchadasi is a book of categories dealing with the different aspects of Advaita Vedantic philosophy. The major emphasis is to help the sincere seekers in getting the perfect vision of the Truth without any doubt whatsoever.

The author indicates very distinctly in the beginning of his composition, that this text is composed for the sincere seekers of Truth who have pure minds with single-pointed devotion for knowing the Supreme Reality with total clarity.

Any serious student of Vedantic philosophy is incomplete in his/her studies without a thorough study of Pancadasi.

In these lectures the student gets to be exposed to the sharpest intellect of Swami Vidyaranya's logic… which brings non-duality to a total understanding.

Panchadasi contains 15 chapters. Chapters are classified into 3 sections of five chapters each.

  1. CH1-5 Dealing with discrimination. Sat (existence) aspect of the Truth.
  2. CH6-10 Dealing with illumination. Cit (consciousness) aspects of the Truth.
  3. CH11-15 Dealing with bliss. Ananda (limitlessness) aspects of the Truth.

Therefore, the book as a whole is an exposition of sat-chit-ananda – the nature of the Absolute expounded in precise detail.

Text is based on Swami Paramarthananda's explanations (disciple of Dayananda – Arsha Vidya) of Vidyaranya's original verses. I am also using reference materials from Chinmaya school (Swami Advayananda) and James Swartz (who studied from both Chinmayananda and Dayananda Saraswati).

May ONLY attend if been following Tuesday videos, or attended physical classes in the past.
