‘An Intro to the Vedas and 10 Upanishads’ by Tavamithram
- An open mind, a deep desire to learn about life and existence, and a fairly good knowledge of the English language.
- A mind that is free from bondages of any kind of organised religion that would prevent them from acquiring knowledge.
In order to learn an organised religion, you need to read one or more of its prime scriptures, learn the dos and don’ts by heart, make up your mind to blindly believe in one or more theistic beings, and pledge your allegiance to the religion and your obedience to the clergy.
On the other hand, all that a person who intends to study the Vedas needs is an open heart, mind and soul. The journey through the Vedas is spiritual and intellectual, which takes a seeker through the different stages, right from the early learning stages to that of being a Self-realised person. The ultimate goal is Self-realisation.
However, due to various reasons, in the name of religion, devotion, and spirituality, different kinds of practices have emerged over a large period of time. These have succeeded in leading seekers far away from the Vedas, of which, the Upanishads are the summit and contain the core non-dualistic philosophy.
It is quite natural for people who decide to study the Vedas and Vedanta to consider taking lessons from great teachers. However, in the busy lives that people lead these days, finding the time or even the right teacher becomes a major stumbling block.
This programme is aimed at enabling seekers to acquire an overview of the non-dualistic philosophy, the Vedic and Upanishadic 'god concept,' the greatness and advanced way of thinking of ancient sages of the Vedic and later periods, and to take the first step towards comprehending their own innate Divinity.
I wish you a spiritually enriching and enjoyable journey through this short programme.
Jai Shri Krishna.

An avid seeker and ardent lover of Life, People, Children, Animals, and the whole of Nature.
As a person who has been blessed with a highly eventful and colourful life with multiple visits to the edge of life due to major injuries, and one who has had the opportunity to study multiple languages, the subject of philosophy, religious scriptures of major religions of the world, and numerous people from different walks of life and backgrounds, I celebrate every moment of the greatest wonder called LIFE.
I consider it my Karmic duty to share with others my secrets to acquiring instantaneous peace of mind and happiness and teaching people Vedanta in a way that is easy to comprehend, imbibe and apply in one's own life.
