Jnan Yajana - Prasthan Trayee Parayan ( Nov 24, 2019, to Dec 7, 2019):  The Prasthan Trayee Parayan was organized as a part of Amrut Mahotsav Celebration of Pujya Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj. A grand starting session of Prasthan Trayee Parayan  was on Nov 24, 2019, in the holy presence of Paramadrsh Vedanta Peethathiswar Sri Swami Bhaskarananda Saraswati Ji at Chidananda Dhyan Mandir, Sivananda Ashram, Ahmedabad. Pujya Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj gave an inaugural speech and enlightened all. About more than fifty Saints, Mahatmas, Mahamandleshwers, and Bhramcharis as well as devotees attended this sacred JanaYajana. Pujya Sri Swami Sarvananda Giriji was the Pramukh Acharya and had led the entire Jana Yajana.  It was full twelve hours of daily program schedule that included recitation of Brahma Sutras, Ten Principal Upanishad namely; Isha, Kena, and Katha, Prashan, Mundaka, Mandukya, Tattiriya, Aitareya, Chhandogya and Brihadaranyaka, Bhagavat Gita and Sri Vishnu Sahsranama and two hours of discourses on “MANDUKYA UPANISHAD” and Mandukya Karikas by learned scholars from 4.30 pm to 6.30 pm.

It was a spiritual feast for the devotees to listen to great MANDUKYA UPANISHAD and its explanatory treatise Mandukya Karika by Acharya Gaudapada. The Mandukya Upanishad mantras provide us with the staple food for our intellect by enunciating the Truth while the Karika graphically reveals to us a line of inquiry and thinking with logic and reason to find out that Truth.

The statement “Brahma Satyam Jagat Mithya" – Brahman is the only reality and all the others are mithya or illusory, an unending dream” puts in a nutshell the entire non- dualistic philosophy of Adi Sankara and his teacher’s teacher Gaudapada. But any person even with a minimum intelligence is bound to argue how this everlasting universe perceived by him and others like him day in and day out in the waking state be a dream? The response to this question is very meticulously investigated and expounded in the great MANDUKYA UPANISHAD and its explanatory treatise Mandukya Karika by Acharya Gaudapada.

 The 12/13 days of Prasthan Trayee Parayan was concluded on December 6, 2019. Concluding Ceremony was graced by Rev. Sri Swami Parmeshwaranandaji Maharaj ( who is 96 years old ) from Sadhana Sadan, Haridwar, and H. H. .Sri Swami Viditatmanandaji Maharaj of Tatva Tirth, Ahmedabad.
