KAIVALYOPANISHAD with Shanker Madan

 

Kaivalyopanishad belongs to the Atharvana Veda and it is one of the most striking Upanishads among the minor ones. Spun from pure philosophy, it is faithful to the tradition of Upanishads, where a student approaches a Teacher demanding knowledge.  

 

Here the student Asvalayana, a learned teacher of Rig Vedas himself, approaches the Creator (Brahma). The Teacher, does not beat about the bush and reveals with minimum words the subtle techniques of attaining the state of Self realisation.

 

This reading, in four weekly meetings in April 2021 is based on commentaries by Swami Chinmayananda and his talks during a spiritual retreat held exactly 20 years ago in Perth in April 1991.

 

About Shanker Madan:

 ‘Initiated into prayers at home and meetings with many wonderful and venerable souls including Swami Venkatesananda and Swami Chinmayananda during the course of this life have shaped the way this life has turned out’.

 

As founding President of the Hindu Temple in Perth and on second stint as President of the Board at IYA, Sivananda Ashram, Perth, Shanker is deeply interested in spirituality, and thinks it will be a blessing to share some time together in discussing a beautiful text like Kaivalyopanishad.
