Discourse on Gita:Jan 19 to 23 by Vasudevacharya (Dr Michael Comans)
  • A chance to listen to the scholar par excellence

    Vasudevacharya, who is well versed in Sanskrit and has studied in depth the
    sacred texts of Hinduism has delivered lectures in Sanskrit in India and abroad.
    Sri Vasudevacharya (previously Dr Michael Comans) hails from Sydney, Australia.
    He is a senior disciple of Sri Swami Dayananda Saraswati, one of the great
    contemporary Hindu teachers. He will be conducting discourse on Bhagavad Gita,
    chapter 8 and 9 in English from January 19 to 23 at the Ayodhya Aswamedha Maha
    Mandapam between 7 pm and 8.30 pm.

    Sri Vasudevacharya’s journey in spiritualism started when he started his studies
    under the guidance of Swami Dayananda from 1980 to 1983, in Chinmaya Mission
    Ashram. He returned to Australia in 1983 and completed his Doctorate in
    Classical Indian Philosophy at the Australian National University in 1987. After
    his PhD, Acharya served as a faculty of Sanskrit in the Department of Indian
    Studies at the Sydney University.However, in 1995 he realized that his interests
    were “really spiritual and not academic”. In 1998, his guru named him
    Vasudevacharya and gave him diksha. Since then he has been teaching the Bhagavad
    Gita and the Upanishads full-time to the general public.

    Vasudevacharya is the first person in Australia to have taught the entire
    Bhagavad Gita to the general public. He commenced a Bhagavad Gita Jnana Yajna in
    March 1996, at a function inaugurated by Swami Dayananda Saraswati, and through
    regular weekly classes he concluded the teaching of the eighteen chapters in
    October 1997. Since then he has been teaching Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads
    across Australia. He has been delivering lectures in other countries including

    In Australia Sri Acharya has a large number of devoted shisyas of articles and
    books on Advaita Vedanta, the recent being The Method of Early Advaita Vedanta
    (Motilal Banarsidass, 2000). He has also composed an Advaita treatise in
    Sanskrit titled Advaitapratibodha. Sri Vasudevacharya is known for explaining
    Vedantic concepts using simple language and through these concepts he
    demonstrates how spirituality is a part and parcel of everyday life.
