More about the Course

Many in this world are merely 'existing', some 'surviving', a few really 'living', a rare few 'living happily' and the rarest, 'outliving life' itself. Jivanasutrani – Tips for Happy Living gives practical ways to live happily and even outlive life. Pujya Swami Tejomayananda's easy-to-remember 'life-sutras' and lucid exposition can effortlessly transform us from the 'ordinary' to the 'extra-ordinary'.

Jivanasutrani are aphorisms on life. This is not a serious text of a Vedantic subject matter, rather it shows how to look at life from a Vedantic standpoint. Therefore this course enables one to apply Vedanta in daily life.

A total of 16 video sessions by Pujya Swami Tejomayananda, divided into 7 lessons, are made available to the registered students.
