Weekend With Wisdom: Voice of Vedanta by Vijaya Jayaraman

Let’s climb together step by step in the spiritual ladder towards Self-knowledge through studying Atma Bodha, a Prakaraba Granta written by Adi Sankara.

This knowledge when followed by sadanas will lead the seekers to Self Realization, the ultimate goal, (Parama Purushartam) of human existence.
