This is a pre-recorded free video course on Vairāgyaśatakam. In these lectures, Ms. P.R. Gayathri explains the kavya in simple Tamil, focusing on the the beauty of the Sanskrit language and the depth of the content of the work.
Vairāgyaśatakam is one of the three series of hundred verses on renunciation. It is a masterpiece by the king turned into ascetic Bhartṛihari. Vairāgyaśatakam is the wisdom of a person who experienced the momentary nature of all phenomenon and created some very poetic ślokas or aphorisms to describe the real nature of life.
” These Shlokas can generally be grouped into ten divisions: condemnation of desire, futile attempts to abandon sense-objects, condemnation of poverty of a supplicant attitude, delineation of the evanescence of enjoyments, description of the working of Time, comparison of a king to an ascetic, control of mind by stimulating wisdom in it, discrimination of the immutable reality from the mutable, worship of Lord Shiva and the ways of a self-realized ascetic.” – Swami Sivananda Saraswati
