In this course, we will all take the opportunity to get a taste of the nectar of the Upanishads. We will not try to go deeply into one or two specific Upanishads, and neither will we try to do a systematic survey of the contents of the 10 or 108 Upanishads. Instead, we will approach the Upanishads with a reverential curiosity, and try to get some glimpses of their glorious vision in a way that leaves us hankering for more.
Along the way, we will gain familiarity with some of the most important themes and ideas of Vedanta such as the guru-shishya parampara, the spectrum of approaches of karma-upasana-jnana, a framing of self-knowledge in the context of practical modern life, and some hints about how to approach a further detailed study of the Vedantic literature.
The topics of the various sessions will blend into one another, examining some key ideas and terms. Then picking certain shlokas and ideas from important Upanishads such as the Katha, Taittareya, Shwetashwara, Chadogya we shall illustrate ideas which helps us to get a sense for the style and the message of the Upanishads.
