Advaita Vedanta is the knowledge of reality of self. In the vision of Vedanta, the relationship of the individual with the universe, as also the cause of the universe, is that of undivided oneness. This course is an introduction to the knowledge of this reality. The Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and the Brahma Sutras, analyzed and explained by Adi Shankaracharya, are its foundational texts. The knowledge is brought down to us through an unbroken chain of teachers and students and the effort is to present it maintaining the sanctity of this long-preserved tradition.
