The Vision of Vedanta

India 's culture is based on a body of knowledge known as the four Vedas. This knowledge came from rishis, seers, who in states of deep meditation captured the Vedic knowledge in the form of mantras and handed over to the humanity. These mantras came down through a tradition of teacher/student lineage. Much later, a great sage known as Vyasa classified the Vedic mantras into four groups known as Rg-Veda, Yajurveda, Sama Veda & Atharva Veda.

This knowledge, which is said to be not of human origin, formed the blueprints for humanity in terms of how it should live and interact with its environment and the world at large and also gave the vison for ultimate freedom, known as Vedanta, also known as the Upanishads. They teach that there is one consciousness in and through every form of life. It is Brahman. It is awareness. There is nothing else. This is Vedanta. 

Of the many Upanishads available, ten are considered to form a nucleus for the teaching known as Brahmavidya – the knowledge of Brahman.

Later the famous Saint Sankara popularised these ten Upanishads and wrote extensive commentaries on them. His commentaries on the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, and Brahmsutra are known as Prasthana Traya Bhashyam, which contains the essence of Brahma Vidya. These commentaries form the basis of the teaching tradition of Dayananda Ashram and other Gurukulams of Pujya Sri Swamiji.

The teaching programs include Sanskrit language and Paninian Grammar also.
