Knowledge alone can give us a sense of detachment, without which life is a bondage and freedom only a dream.

Foundation Vedanta Course


Swami Chinmayananda, the founder of Chinmaya Mission, initiated a unique method to study Vedanta at home through easy lessons. These lessons are made available from Chinmaya International Foundation (CIF). Both postal and online modes of study are available. There is no need for one to change one’s faith, religion or spiritual master to pursue the course.


The primary aim of this Home Study Course is to introduce you to the timeless Vedantic Philosophy and to enable you to apply its priceless wisdom in your day-to-day life. The philosophy of Vedanta empowers an individual to face the situations and problems of life, be it in profession, family or interpersonal relationships, with ease and dexterity. This, in turn, enables peace of mind and efficient living.


Any individual who seeks to know the Vedantic Philosophy and earnestly wishes to apply it in his life is welcome to join this course. Sanskrit knowledge is not required for this course. For taking this course ‘online’, basic computer knowledge is required.
