What students are saying

“This knowledge has changed the direction of my life making me better at everything I do. If you want a truly fulfilled life without stress, there is no knowledge like Vedanta.”

“I had everything any person would want in life: wealth, family, career, but was still looking for real satisfaction and direction. Vedanta gave me that clarity of purpose that is so important in life

“I never thought it was possible to learn the deep wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita verse by verse so clearly and logicially. The knowledge is taught in a way that I can actually apply in day-to-day living. Thanks to Gautamji for guiding us through this incredible experience!”

About the classes

New! The Holocaust of Attachment

Beginner-friendly class

The lack of intellect has caused the mind’s uncontrolled attachment to sense objects, family, wealth, status, religion, practically everything. This deadly attachment has reached epidemic proportions and the world is consumed by stress, strain and disharmony. Study of this book will help understand this problem in-depth and develop the solution,  which is the resurrection of the fallen intellect. A powerful intellect alone can control attachment and generate peace and harmony in the individual and society.
