Dharma Moolam Introduction to Deivathin Kural
Sri. Ra. Ganapathy was blessed to receive Maha Periyava’s divine grace and remained close to Him absorbing the essence of His discourses and meetings with scholars and great many devotees. He is the author of the seven volumes of “Deivathin Kural” in Tamizh, an eternal treasure, compiled from the discourses and discussions of “Kanchi Maha Periyava”. The seven volumes were published over a period of twenty five years between 1975 and 2000.
We have made every effort to reproduce Acharya’s ideas from select chapters from Dheivathin Kural. Any perceived deviation is completely unintentional and regretted. Also, these are Acharya’s ideas as given in the particular chapter in the book and may not convey his ideas in entirety.
This program aims to introduce select topics from Deivathin Kural through weekly Zoom sessions in English. Topics covered for the first season are 1. Introduction to Sanathana Dharmam and Vaidhika Dharmam, 2. Dharma and Society, 3. Dharma and Family, 4. Acharam and Aharam, 5. Guru Tattvam and 6. Sri Shankara Charitram.
This is approximately a 12 Week long program starting from 31st January 2021. Total number of sessions will vary based on how much of a given topic is covered in every session. Each session is 1 hour long with ~45 mins of lecture in English and 15 mins of question-answer sessions.
Who can attend?
Anyone curious to know about Sanathana Dharma and wants to know the teachings of Mahaperiyava with motivation to follow the teachings can attend. Especially parents who want to introduce Sanathana Dharma to kids by leading the prescribed way of life would benefit a lot. We intend to make these sessions in such a way that Parents who attend the session can then teach them to their kids in their own pace.
