LET US BE HINDUS

Swamiji’s very first address to the Poona audience at the 1st Gnana Yagna.

WHAT IS RELIGION

The science of all sciences, it guides us to the Knowledge Absolute.

VEDANTA – THE RELIGION OF DETACHMENT

Each one of you now please ask this question to yourself ”Who is this I?”

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ABSOLUTE

Let us see for ourselves what is our relationship with the Absolute.

THE PATH

We are here today to seek a source for all life, the one Reality behind all appearances.

GOD AND ME

Without Ishwara Bhakthi no progress is possible. It is an absolute necessity.

THE LAW OF KARMA

Each moment we are preparing ourselves for the lives yet to come.

FALL AND RISE OF MAN

I am using today a board and chalk since the subject is not easy.

THE UPANISHADS

The Upanishads are revelations; not the products of mind & intellect.

KENOPANISHAD

Suppose a few of you and this Sadhu go for a walk on a moonlit night...

TEACHER AND TAUGHT

To a seeker, a Guru is as absolutely an unavoidable necessity.

SELF PURIFICATION

Stop the mind! Then there is no world, Samsara. Wake yourself up. That's all.

SINCERE PURSUIT

Where can this land of Truth be? What is the world beyond the horizon?

CHAINS THAT SHACKLE

Mind and intellect are to be considered as Chappals to keep away.

THE SEER

The Knower knows the Known and it equally knows the Unknown.

MIND IS MAN

This light that illumines the mind giving a semblance of Reality is ‘Chit’.

A CAUTION

We outcasts in the Atma Loka cannot be given a direct darshan of Reality.

PURE TRUTH

You can only meditate yourself into it. The merger of "I" and "you" is possible.

THE DREAM MIRAGE

The Intellect throws a pool of reflected Atmic Glory called the Ego.

KILL THE EGO

This achievement is within the scope of every mortal; the real fulfillment of life's journey.

THE GOAL

Learn to see the one Truth that lies self-evident in all names and forms.

HERE AND NOW

Man can rise to God-hood even while he is in the body. Here and Now.

THE INNER ESSENCE

We must continue our pursuit expecting nothing, hoping nothing…

CONDITIONED BRAHMAN

The Idol is the means. Self-Discovery is the goal. Confusing the two leads to sorrow.

SELF PERFECTION TECHNIQUE

Austerity, restraint and dedicated work; these are the foundations of It.

NOTE FROM SWAMI CHINMAYANANDA

No funds to print the Kathopanishad talks.
