Vivekacūḍāmaṇi – The Crest-Jewel of Discrimination
Saturdays at 8:30 AM Pacific Time
Vivekacūḍāmaṇi, the Crest Jewel of Discrimination, is a popular book of Advaita Vedanta. Through a dialogue between the spiritual seeker and teacher, Ādi Śaṅkarācārya unfolds the deeply personal and transformative vision of one’s inherent freedom as taught by the sages of ancient India.
Gently but systematically guiding the student through an exploration of the truth of oneself, the world, and the Sacred, the guru reveals the cause of suffering and the means to gain freedom from it.
The text is intended for one seeking Mokṣa – the removal of erroneous self conclusions which lead to endless struggle in one’s life, and gaining the direct recognition that one is even now what one seeks to become.

Tuesdays at 7:30 PM Pacific Time
Ātmabodha means the direct recognition of the truth of oneself. This vision of one’s innate wholeness is discovered through an inquiry into the veracity of the limited self-conclusions we entertain about ourselves.
