Tattvabodha is a short text by Adi Sankaracharya that explains and unfolds the entire Advaita Vedanta to us in an easy to understand manner, in the traditional teaching method of ancient Indian culture of Guru-Shishya Paramparaa. It is an excellent text to start study of Vedanta and I am told that it is the very first text taught at the AVG Gurukulam’s 3 year Vedanta course each time.
Tattva Bodha is easy to learn and also to recite. Teachers recommend to memorise the verses by heart as each verse is a lesson in itself and will come handy to students like us in our day to day activities. It is rightly said that in this wonderful text we can find guidance on every topic that concerns our daily lives, relationships and conduct in general.
Swami Paramarthananda, a leading contemporary teacher and exponent of Vedanta from the AVG Paramparaa has given detailed, extensive lectures on this text and a student Shri Raghu Ganapathy ji has painstakingly transcribed every single lecture and presented it to us in book form, published and put up for free download by Shri N. Avinasilingam of Arsha Avinash Foundation www.arshaavinash.in Thanks to this effort, this monumental work is available to us all. Lets avail of this learning opportunity by downloading this text.
A small 10-page PDF booklet “Summary of Tattvabodha” by Shri N. Avinasilingam is also very useful for an overview. Download it here
