Course Introduction The Chinmaya International Foundation (CIF) already offers a Foundation Postal Vedanta Course and an E-Vedanta Course. In spite of the overwhelming responses for these courses, there has been a growing need for an advanced course that gives an in-depth understanding of important Vedantic concepts. To fulfill this long-felt need, CIF is pleased to announce its Advanced Postal and E-Vedanta Courses. The materials of study for both courses are the same, whether correspondence is via mail or e-mail.
Course Objective The primary aim of this one-year home-study course is to provide clarity and depth to your Vedantic study. All important Vedantic concepts dealt with in the Prakarana Granthas, such as Vivekachudamani, Atma Bodha, Tattva Bodha, Vakya Vritti and Panchadashi are covered in a series of 24 detailed lessons.
Course Eligibility Any individual who seeks to have an in-depth study of Vedanta is welcome to join this course. It is not required for students to have completed CIF's Foundation Postal or E-Vedanta Course to register for the Advanced Vedanta Course.
Course Duration This is a one-year home-study course with 24 lessons to study and 24 questionnaires to answer. Students are required to complete 2 lessons in a month at the rate of one a fortnight.
Course Rewards The study of the Advanced Vedanta Course will give you an in-depth understanding of Vedanta with a thorough grounding of the basic terminologies and concepts. Reading of the scriptures is to be undertaken hand-in-hand with subjective discipline. This alone will lead to spiritual progress. The Course explains the sadhanas (spiritual disciplines) that are to be followed in our day-to-day life. These sadhanas will bestow purity of mind and single pointedness of intellect that are most required for peace and happiness in life. You will also learn the true meaning of meditation and learn the art of its practice.

  "I was very very happy. Everything was explained very nicely. I was able to get a very clear overall view and understanding. It was never boring. One thing that became very clear is that this knowledge is going to be repeated till I become That." - Naina Bhoot, Advanced E-Vedanta Course, Los Angeles, USA "Now I realise that true pin-pointedness of mind can only be achieved if life is lived on the path of truth and righteousness which in turn will help in meditation and vice versa – a sort of VIRTUOUS CIRCLE. This concept was truly cleared by the extensive Vedanta course." - Satish Kumar Menon, Advanced E-Vedanta Course, Dubai "I have started interacting with situations and people with much more ease and a positive frame of mind. I feel Vedanta should compulsorily be taught in schools for all children so that they can achieve better success in their career, profession and family life." – R. K.
