2 posts in this topic

Dear Friends,

Om Namo Narayanaya,

It is our great privilege that Shri Kailas Ashram Brahmavidya Peeth,

Rishikesh, has started its official website before some days. The link is

www.kailasashram.com .

Kailas Ashram Brahmavidya Peeth is a 115 years old Peetham, where ONLY

Sannyasins (and Naishthika Brahmacharins of course, who are just going to

enter the Sannyasa Ashrama) were allowed to study Brahmavidya according to

Sampradaya Parampara (Guru-shishya tradition), though recently from the last

15 years Grihasthas are also being allowed to participate, if they wish.

Bhagavan Shankaracharya says, "Even a scholar, who has studied all the

scriptures, but has not studied them under Sampradaya Parampara, should be

ignored as an ignorant" (Gita Bhashya 13-2). Kailas Ashram Brahmavidya Peeth

is the ONLY place in India where a person can study Prasthana Traya (Gita,

Upanishads and BrahmaSutra, with Shankara's commentary, Ananda Giri's

sub-commentary and Swami Vishnudevananda's Annotations) under Guru-shishya

Parampara. Today over 110 Sannyasins from allover India study there. All of

them are provided with lodging and fooding facilities. Even today, though

everybody is allowed to participate, the Ashram only keeps Sannyasins.

Girhasthas are just allowed to stay for 3 days or for some who are highly

interested 1 month.

Kailas Ashram has also a publication department, which is publishing one of

the best books in the field of Shankara Vedanta.

Great Saints, like Swami Vivekananda, Swami Abhedananda, Swami Ramatirtha

and Swami Shivananda have studied in Kailas Ashram. Even today saints like

Swami Dayananda (from ArshaVidyaGurukulam), Swami Vishvadevananda, Swami

Chidananda and Swami Krishnananda (Divine Life Society) have a great

adoration towards this Ashram.

Today Kailas Ashram is being directed by H.H. Swami Vidyananda Giri Ji

Maharaj, who is the 10th Peethacharya in the linage of Scholars. At present

His Holiness is 84 years old. He is considered to be one of the greatest

leading scholars in the field of Shankara Advaita Vedanta in India today. He

has also designed three courses, each one of 18 days, to learn Gita,

Brahmasutra and Upanishads. He has also been highly admired by all

present-day political leaders, Like P.M. Atal Bihari Vahpayee, H.M. Lal

Krishna Advani, Shri Murli Manohar Joshi, and VishvaHinduParishad. He is a

leading member of VHP, though he is totally untouched from the present day

politics.

Even today in the age of 84, he teaches Prasthanatraya, each one for one

hour, that makes 3 hours + he does one hour Patha (Parayana, recitation) of

Shankara's Bhashya on Gita.

Kailas Ashram has a very nice temple of Bhagavan Shankaracharya, with all

his four disciples.

I have seen Swami Krishnananda Ji, who is at present a great scholar from

the Divine Life Society, prostrating before him, when he comes to attend a

function in Shivananda Ashram.

I had the greatest fortune of my life to study from him for the last 12

years seince the age of 8. I invite all of you to visit the website and be

involved in the holy

work of spreading Advaita Vedanta.

Loving Regards,

Siddhartha
