Narada Bhakti Sutra Every Sunday
10:30-11:30 AM
Venkat Menta (menta.venkat@gmail.com)
Puran Lahoti (puran.lahoti@gmail.com)
"Love is a link that connects, a force that attracts, a fascination that seizes, and a clasp that grasps. Therefore, when one establishes himself in the relationship of devotion with the Divine, he steps up into a realm of his own, having his own enchantments and personal experiences”

Swami Chinmayananda’s commentary on Narada Bhakti Sutra dances with the nuances of an ecstatic and enduring relationship with the Lord of one’s heart that becomes the bed-rock of a devotee’s life. This Devine Love is all-consuming yet purging and freeing in its impact.
Bhaja Govindam Every Sunday
10:30-11:30 AM
Padma Dilip (padma1025@gmail.com)
Dr. Jaishree Chitluri (chitluri.jaisree09@gmail.com)
Composed by the great saint Sri Adi Shankaracharya, BhajaGovindam is one of the most lucid yet insightful works of Vedanta. The BhajaGovindam belongs to the class of stotras. However, as the verses contain deep Vedantic thought it is often included as a prakarana, introductory text. Although small, it is a prominent composition of Shankara’s that teaches the fundamentals of Vedanta. Its style is simple, and its melody makes it appealing to people of all ages. Each one of its 31 verses is a pearl of wisdom that is relevant to our lives.
Kaivalya Upanishad Every Sunday
11:45 AM -1:00 PM
Milind Pradhan (milindkpradhan@yahoo.com) Kaivalya Upanishad belongs to the Atharvana Veda. Its poetic diction, systematic development of thought - at once clear, concise and scientific arrangement of highly philosophical ideas make it one of the most striking minor Upanishads.
True to the Upanishadik style where Masters consider the story form as a conversation between the teacher and his disciple as the most apt devise to make the subject easily intelligible, in this Upanishad Ashvaalayana, the great teacher of Rig Veda is a disciple and Lord Brahma, the Creator himself, is the teacher, which makes this the most valuable amongst the minor Upanishads.
Self-Unfoldment (As Needed) Every Sunday
11:45 AM -12:45 PM
Madhu Venkatachalam (madhu43016@yahoo.com) We all are already happy and whole, except that we do not know it. Once some of our wrong thought patterns are undone, we can experience greater happiness than we ever even dreamed of. Self-Unfoldment is a compilation of the writings and transcribed talks of Swami Chinmayananda, one of the foremost teachers of Vedanta of our times. As he unfolds the teaching, he reveals to us the path to our own inner unfoldment.
