Introduction to Ishopanishad

Online Certificate course



Īśopaniṣad is one of the short Upanishads with only 18 mantras that captures the entire gamut of Hindu philosophy and worldview. 

It not only enunciates upon the ultimate goal of life, namely Moksha, but also charts out different courses of life that a person can choose and the kinds of destination such life-courses would lead one to. 

The short but deep Upanishad sheds light upon opposites such as: Karma and Jnana, Avidya and Vidya, Manifest and Unmanifest, Kramamukti and Jivanmukti, etc. 

This course is for anyone who want to become familiar with the roadmap of Vedantic pursuit.

  • A comprehensive introduction to the philosophy of Upanishads.
