Event description

Description

This is an advanced ongoing step-by-step program teaching time-tested, proven Advaita Vedānta (non-dual) teachings to permanently remove the veil of Ignorance. Ultimately leading one to permanent realization of Supreme Reality which all our great sages, rishis and scriptures are pointing to. (aham brahmāsmi, satcitānanda)

It's also for those who've already gone through the Spiritual marketplace. Done it and seen it all. Experienced every transcendental state there is to know about. Yet lights continue going On/Off. "Now all is CLEAR, Now I'm confused!" - despite decades of consistent sadhana.

When repetitively exposed to Vedānta Self-Knowledge, the spiritual search/seeking ends permanently. Because the Supreme Truth (brahman) is directly understood as YOU (tat tvam asi).

Class teachings comprise of selected chapters from Bhagavad Gītā, Upanishads, Panchadasi, and Brahma Sutras.

Class is on-going weekly (don't need to wait until 26 June). See schedule here: http://www.yesvedanta.com/events/

Andre's teacher is James Swartz (disciple of Swami Chinmayananda). Including Swami Dayananda and Paramarthananda (Chennai, India). All four have been some of most precise, articulate and effective non-dual teachers of traditional Vedānta.

Program is adapted and simplified for Western Mind (without inundating you with hundreds of Sanskrit words), while essence of the program is strictly preserved.

======================
TEACHING PROGRAM:
======================

(1) Jiva (You as a body-mind person): There's no skipping the person as is done in Neo-Advaita world. Because the person who you believe yourself to be continues having personal desires, thoughts, doubts and emotions which obstruct Liberation/Freedom/Self-Realization. So we first address this worldly person.

(2) Īśvara (Creation / Maya / God): What is God? How does it creates the Universe? Why does it conceals our Original Identity? Knowledge of Īśvara is the missing key before one can arrive to final and permanent realization as Existence-Consciousness-Bliss (sat-chit-ananda).

(3) Self (Original "I" / satchitananda / brahman): Anyone can say "I'm Liberated". But to DIRECTLY UNDERSTAND this, requires a careful teaching to arrive to this Final Truth often called "Enlightenment" in the West.


======================
QUALIFICATIONS:
======================

Vedanta isn't for everyone. It is NOT for curiosity spiritual seekers moving from one teaching to another.

Only for ages 24+. Because there is a certain life experience required for this to work.

Vedanta is ONLY for those who've renounced or started renouncing the World. Meaning you've come to realize no worldly object/experience (eg power, sex, money, relationships) can provide you permanent satisfaction. It all comes and goes.

You are NOT finding escape from the world. In fact your life should be in order and decently balanced.

And MOST IMPORTANTLY: you have a unstoppable burning desire for Liberation/Freedom, as strong as desire for the next breath.

Knowledge of Sanskrit is not required.


======================
SCHEDULE & COST:
======================

Tradition doesn't allow teaching for money, but freely taught. Motivation to teach for funds/popularity is dangerous. For that reason, teacher has own job. Hence this ongoing program is free.

Address: 4 Rosalind Crescent, Blackburn 3130, Melbourne

Come sharp. This isn't an intro, but ongoing. Program is same quality standards as those who're officially studying it for 2/3 years.
