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 — should you undertake them in the future.

Therefore in this immersive webinar series, led by Vedic and Sanskrit teacher Andre V. — 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

  1. Sorry , I am a bit confused here . I think I have missed the first class because of the time difference . What time in EST, should I be tuning in , if I am residing in Toronto , Canada ? I do not see the zoom link either . Thanks for a reply .

    1. Hi. Indeed. We had a time-zone change on the same day of Webinar. So some didn’t come at right time. It’s 3:30PM Melbourne time. That’s 12:30am Toronto time on Sunday.

  2. HI Andre – What chapter or video number are you going to teach on Oct 1? I want to catch up on all the previous classes before I join.

    1. We finished Causal Body verse (kāraṇa śarīram kim, कारण शरीरम् किम् ). Next Sun = 3 states, avasthātrayam kim अवस्थात्रयम् किम्

  3. Namaste Mahodaya Andre:
    Hope all is well with you .
    I attended my first class on Tattvabodha on avasthātrayam, and the simplification of complex content accompanied by effective pedagogical skills is indeed gratifying. Staying fully “conscious “ with the difference in Canadian time zone at 1:30 am is a challenge but tapas is necessary for one ‘s growth . Is there a recorded version of the lesson ? I appreciate if this can be posted and shared .
    धन्यवादः ईश्वरस्य आशीर्वादः च
