Swami Chinmayananda, the founder of Chinmaya Mission, initiated a unique method to study Vedanta at home through easy lessons. These lessons are made available from Chinmaya International Foundation (CIF). The primary aim of this Home Study Course is to introduce you to the timeless Vedantic Philosophy and to enable you to apply its priceless wisdom in your day-to-day life. One could choose the Postal or Online mode to study the Foundation Vedanta Course. The materials of study for both the courses are the same, regardless of whether you receive your lessons by post or online mode. There is no need for one to change one's faith, religion or spiritual master to do this Foundation Vedanta Course.
