Dharma Talk Video 2.2.17

Dharma Talk, A Traditional Vedanta Study Group 2.2.17 (Video)


Dakshinamurthy – “दक्षिणामूर्ति is an aspect of the Hindu god Shiva as a guru (teacher) of all types of knowledge. This aspect of Shiva is his personification as the supreme or the ultimate awareness, understanding and knowledge.” Wikipedia

Below you will find a video link, the first of a two part introduction to Vedanta “The Big Picture,” filmed at True Nature Healing Arts, in Carbondale, CO. This is the second year of our Vedanta Study Group. In the first we explored “Essence of Enlightenment,” by James (Ramji) Swartz. Following this two part introduction we will read “Introduction to Vedanta,”by Swami Dayananda.

Opening chant shared in the video:

sadashiva samarambhaam 

from the first guru, pure existence/consciousness,

shankaracharya madhyamaam

down to Shankaracharya in the midddle

asmad acharya paryantaam

and my teacher at the end

vande guru paramparam 

I prostrate to guru-disciple tradition


isvaro guratmeti  

Isvara, my guru,

murthi bedha vibaghine

is beyond form and duality

vyomavad vyapta dehaya 

beyond space and the body

Dakshinamurthtiyaa namaha

I bow to Isvara in the form of Dakshinamurti, the one who brings self knowledge


sarva vedanta siddhanta

the import of all Vedanta texts

gocharam tamagagocharam

is beyond the known and the unknown

govindam paramanandam

it is limitless bliss and unborn light

satguru pranatoshmahaam

I worship that reality as my guru
