Profound Timeless Wisdom: Tattva Bodha Zoom Webinar Series

Tattva Bodha is a prominent text in Advaita Vedanta that has been widely studied and revered for its timeless wisdom. The term “Tattva Bodha” literally means “knowledge of reality” and it is considered to be one of the most important texts of Vedanta that helps in understanding the nature of the Self, the world, and the ultimate reality.

The Advaita Vedanta philosophy is based on the fundamental principle of non-dualism, which states that the ultimate reality is one without a second. It asserts that the individual self (jiva) and the ultimate reality (Brahman) are not two different entities, but are essentially one and the same. 

Not only is Tattva Bodha a complete manual for liberation, but it also introduces the most crucial terminology and concepts that are essential for a deeper understanding of texts like Bhagavad Gita, Brahma Sutra and Upanishads β€” should you undertake them in the future.

Therefore in this immersive webinar series, led by Vedic and Sanskrit teacher Andre V. β€” you will be systematically and carefully guided through the text so your understanding is aligned with it's clarity. Each lesson builds upon the previous until you've grasped it intimately.

After registration, you'll receive the verses PDF document.

Teachings are based on Swami Dayananda's Tattvabodha book, and Swami Tejomayananda's Tattvabodha book, which we highly recommend you get on Amazon

  3. Oh rats. I am in Los Angeles time and I was planning on joining your the Tattva Bodha group tonight. I see I should have gotten on LAST night at 10:30. I am listening to you now. I hope I can still come next SATURDAY. I am a serious student. Kerry

  4. Hello Andre,

    I did not register as I thought the class would not be recorded. I am on East Coast, USA. I happen today to revisit here and see in these comments you may have recordings available. If possible, I would very much like to register to watch them. I tried the link above and sent me to a rather strange message. Thank you.
