Vedanta is a complete systematic teaching that sets an individual free from dependence on sentient beings and insentient things. To set yourself free, an inquirer needs to understand the basic teachings. Tattva Bodh is an introductory text written by Shankaracharya that presents the fundamental ideas in the standardized terminology used in all intermediate and advanced Vedantic texts. Without a common language, the direct transmission that removes one's ignorance will not take place. ShiningWorld offers two Tattva Bodh seminars for the price of one. Tattva Bodh means "Knowledge of Truth" and presents reality's fundamental material, psychological and spiritual principles.
