Swami Chinmayananda was one of India's most respected spiritual leaders. A gifted speaker, he taught Indian philosophy in its most ancient and purest form : Vedanta. With brilliance and wit, Swami Chinmayananda gives a rational analysis of these sacred texts, leading seekers to the knowledge and understanding of the true self. Through these videos, you will experience the warmth and love of a great Master sharing his wisdom and joy, and pointing towards your own divinity to help you to discover the unlimited love and light within yourself.\r\n\r\nVedanta is truly the "science of life". Shankara, the great interpreter of vedanta, not only gave us his commentaries on the Upanishads, the Brahma Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita, but also composed many primary texts that introduce the seeker to the joys of vedanta. One of the greatest texts he has written as an introduction to vedanta is the Vivekachudamani, which means "The Crest Jewel of Discrimination".\r\n\r\nVivekachudamani is the cream of the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. It re-educates the student in a systematic way to provide him with a new vision of life. The goal and the path are both exhaustively dealt with in this elaborate exposition of Vedanta by Shankara. Vivekachudamani contains all the guidance a sincere student needs to live a spiritual life and discover his true self.
