Past Courses

This multi-part course is conceptualized to have a three-part series.

The first part of the series, namely, ‘Scriptures and Saints’ begins in January 2010 and is expected to be completed by December 2011. The course will be taught at Belur Campus and by the monks of Ramakrishna Order. The prospectus for the Part I of this course is available in pdf format for download.

(Please refer to the admission notice for exact dates.)

We feel that it is pertinent to make the class lectures available online for free download to benefit wider audience over the world wide web.

Sridhara Swami's tika on Srimad Bhagavad Gita will be used for traditional interpretation. For modern interpretation Swami Ranganathananda's book ‘Universal Message of Gita’ along with lectures of Swami Vivekananda on Gita appearing in Volume-1 of ‘Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda’ shall be followed.

For this course we shall be following the book ‘Jnana Yoga, Advaita Ashrama, Kolkata’
