In Hindu thought, self-knowledge is considered the supreme knowledge i.e., Paravidya.

The Dakṣiṇāmūrtistōtram by Ādi Śaṅkara, consisting of ten hymns is a profound Vedantic text expounding the various tenets of Vedanta. The hymns are in praise of Bhagavan Dakṣiṇāmūrti visualized as the embodiment of self-knowledge. In this Webinar, we will introduce an upcoming course in the Summer Quarter which will systematically unfold the ten hymns, verse by verse, drawing upon Mānasōllāsa and Tattvasudhā, which are commentaries of the original text.

The text describes the reality of the Self as the limitless Brahman in ten hymns, which are linked together in such a way leading to the discernment of the one indivisible reality threading through the individual self, the world, and the causal principle, Īśvara. The text pulls together the philosophical content of the Upaniṣads, the Bhagavad Gītā and the Brahmasūtras – the three core pillars of Vedantic knowledge and presents a comprehensive summary.

Seekers of Self-knowledge are encouraged to join us for this week's webinar.
