Swami Akhandanand Saraswatiji Maharaj
Taitteriya Upanishad Vartikas Swami Akhnadananda Saraswathiji Maharaj Lec 01 Tape1A Lec 02 Tape1B Introduction to Upanishad through Shanthi Path Not knowing One's Own Self is cause for all Bondage & Dependence In desiring things I make myself Petty Shastra regulates indulgence through Dharma Sukha & Dukha are always in form of Knowledge & Internal Mangalacharana Shloka Usefulness of Mangalacharana Taking support of Iswara is not dependence but gives strength I notion alone is caled Samsara One who loves Truth alone seeks to find Truth One Drsta ( Knower) & Many Drsya ( Known) Salutations to that principle not graspable through 5 senses Man can create all else except himself In vedanta, anubhava of Pramtr Drsta is not considered True Mukthi when Brahmatva of Drsta is known Ultimate teaching of Adwaitha – Nothing other than Self

Lec 04 Tape2A/B

Lec 05 Tape3A Lec 06 Tape3A/B Cause for Dukha is Vasana & No end for longing How Ajnana is at root of all bondage Until Antahkarana is shuddha it is impossible to attain Brahmatva Remove vikara ( Raga,dwesha etc) first & then samskara Discussion on Adhyaropa Apavada Respect to others is to make one's own mind become pure Developing a sense of gratitude to all that makes me possible to live Yagna,Puja, Tapas etc to purify antahkarana to receive this Vidya Whatever form is seen is subject to destruction without exception Samsara will not die a natural death Effort is needed to come out of it Sadhana starts with vivechana of Sukha & Dukha Continue in Dharma until Vasanas no longer bother you Vairagya through Doshanuchinthanam Brahmajnana makes Raga & Dwesha mithya but is not hetu for Virag Ashuddha Pravritti at root of all dukha Hate does not destroy other but one's own antahkarana

Lec 10 Tape5A/B All Manovikaras are due to Avidya Discussion on Sadhana – Raga & Dwesha shithilikarana Samsara & Jagat are 2 different things Only samsara needs negation “I am” need not be established by any other means Ajnana is not Jnana abhava but Jnana Vishesha abhava Difference between Parinama & Parimana In Atma neither parinama not parimana

Lec 11 Tape5B Tape6A Lec 12 Tape6A/B

If I am not the body who am I ? As long as identified with limited antahkarana no experience of Purnatva Discussion on Mithya , Karakas Preperations of a sadhaka for Brahma Jnana Freedom in doing, not doing or doing otherwise Discussion on Tyaga Upadhi & Upahitha viveka Role of Dharma in preparing sadhaka for this knowledge Nature of swabhava & how to overcome it – by Tyaga Iswara as Karma phala daatha All raga dwesha only due to non-recognition of Iswara's nature Discussion on Tyaga as a center theme of vedanta Elimination of vasanas only by tyaga Tyaga comes from outside to inside & not vice-versa Drsta has Mukhya samandhikarana with Brahma & Drsya has Bhaada samandhikarana with Brahma You are not living inside the body but in a kalpana of deha Discussion on Tyaga continues as the ultimate moksha sadhana Dharma is to remove pramadha , aalasya etc Removing yourself from all that you are not is Tyaga In anubhava of adwithiya nature of Self “this” is not seperate from“I”. Vairagya is sadhana & Asangatha is swarupa Resolution of paradox – Tyaga or Jnana -which is marga for Amruthathva – both said by Shruthi Tyaga is giving up ownership to its rightful owner This comes with the right understanding – Yathartha Jnana or Prama Ama ( Amavasya) & Prama ( Isavasya) discussion Ananda Mimamsa discussion Ananda as swarupa of self
