- ZOOM CLASSES – YOU CAN JOIN AT ANY TIME: WEDNESDAYS THROUGHOUT 2023
WEDNESDAYS THROUGHOUT 2023
We warmly invite you to a series of ongoing, online classes on various scriptures of Advaita Vedanta, which are being offered by Advaita Vedanta Ashram Europe.
The classes will be taught by Satchitananda, based on the Teachings of the world-renowned Advaita Vedanta Teacher, Swami Paramarthananda, who is Satchitananda’s Guru.
Satchitananda has personally received the approval and blessings of Swami Ji to offer these classes based on his teachings, and students can download the transcripts of Swami Ji’s teachings that we will be covering from https://arshaavinash.in/index.php/books-by-swami-paramarthananda/
We begin with an 8 – week beginners course studying the transcript of Swami Paramarthananda’s talks called ‘INTRODUCTION TO VEDANTA’, which is based on Adi Sankara’s TATTVA BODHA.
After the 8 week course is completed, the beginner’s class will then transform into an intermediary class.
The intermediary class will study the transcript of Swami Paramarthananda’s talks on Adi Sankara’s ‘VIVEKACUDAMANI’.
The intermediary class will start in May 2023. You do not have to have attended the beginner’s class in order to join the intermediary class, though some basic understanding of Advaita Vedanta, will be useful.
For advanced students, our intention is create a class on Sundays, that will study the Ashtavakra Gita, Ribhu Gita and so on. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
In each class, Satchitananda will answer any questions that students have about the text in order to reveal the deeper. Through Q & A, students will have a great opportunity to clarify their understanding and to remove any doubts they may have. Q & A will be followed by a guided meditation allowing us to gain deep experience of the essential meaning of the truths we have discovered.
Please prepare for the class by studying the section of the text that will be covered in the class. You can download the relevant PDF’s from https://arshaavinash.in/index.php/books-by-swami-paramarthananda/
Classes will be via ZOOM. They will be every Wednesday at 6pm Greek time. The next class will be on Wednesday the 29th of March. Students can join the course at any time. There will be regular term breaks.
18:00 – 19:00 [Greek time];

From Satchitananda’s biography:
“He teaches with humility and aims to guide students towards a profound understanding of Non-Duality and even Beyond Non-Duality to the experience of their True Self/Nature as Awareness. He aims to reveal our Ever-Present but veiled Bliss, Harmony, Peace, Presence, Awareness. The Ultimate Truth is Awareness full of Bliss, but even this is only a pointer because What There Is – Is Beyond any concepts.
Since 2012, he did not feel he needed any more practice and IT was something that he just knew. He is permanently convinced in the recognition that there Is Only Brahman-Awareness and Abides As That.”
In 2020, outside the Vidyashankara Temple at Sringeri Math, His Holiness Sri Vidhushekhara Bharati Swamiji initiated Satchitananda into a sacred Shiva mantra and gave him permission to pass this on to his students. This is the first time in history that a Grihasta [family man] has received such an initiation [and permission].
In keeping with tradition, classes will be offered on an optional donation basis. You are very welcome to make a donation, however it is entirely optional and in no way a pre-requisite for attending the class.
Although donations are optional, do consider making a contribution, as all donations will go towards the establishment of our residential Ashram in Greece. Without donations, our vision will not be possible.
