“If you master Bhagavad Gita, what is the need for a pile of scriptures,'' says Mahabharata. The Bhagavad Gita is the quintessence of the entire upanishads, immensely practical and thus the most popular of all the scriptural texts. It is an unparalleled self-transformation tool. By mastering the wisdom of the Gita, one truly masters the mind, life and the world!
We are able to see, hear, taste, smell and touch. What is that which makes this body, essentially inert, sentient? What makes our senses, mind and intellect function? Rarely we wonder and ask about this Cosmic Phenomenon that provides us with life and its many and varied gifts. Some rare individuals wonder and for them begins the journey towards the Self. The Upaniṣads reveal to us that in truth we are beyond life and death, good and bad; that we are the supreme Brahman, the highest Reality. Inclusive of all, excluding nothing, this ultimate Reality of life when realized through the triple means of śravaṇa, manana and nididhyāsana (listening, reflection and meditation) reveals the Self as source of all Bliss and Knowledge within. This Realization when once owned by us, even for a moment (sakṛd api), then there is no turning back to our old ignorant state of living. The entire universe becomes one’s own abode, and comes to be experienced as a glorious expression of the Self. Come revel in the Upaniṣads, bask in its knowledge, discover yourself and become fulfilled. What are you waiting for?

His Holiness Swami Chinmayananda, the founder of Chinmaya Mission, initiated a unique method to study Vedanta through easy Vedanta lessons. The Chinmaya International Foundation (CIF) already offers Foundation and Advanced Vedanta Courses and Sanskrit Courses for home study through Online and Postal modes. Pujya Swami Chinmayananda was indeed the Gita Acharya of modern times. His commentary on the Bhagavad Gita, ‘The Holy Geeta’, is acclaimed as a philosophical masterpiece and a manual on spiritual life. His lectures which he termed as Gita Jnana Yagnas, meaning transformation through the fire of knowledge, rather than the age-old Vedic practice of purification through a ritualistic havan presided over by a priest, did transform an entire generation. CIF feels blessed and privileged to now offer the Bhagavad Gita Course to students of Vedanta, spiritual seekers and to all those who wish to live a life of quality and perfection. You may choose either the Online or Postal mode to study the Bhagavad Gita Course. The study material for both is the same regardless of the method by which you receive the lesson. There is no need to change your faith, religion, or spiritual master to study this Course.

The materials of study for both Online & Postal courses are the same, whether correspondence is via email or post.
