Special Lectures


Dr Mani Dravid gives special lectures during Vijayadasami every year.These have

been ported under Special Lectures.




HH Appiah Dikshita wrote this book and this was republished by the Samithi at

Hyderabad.Polagam Sri Rama Sastrigal wrote an introduction to this book ending with a prayer on Ambaal.


Sastrigal based his lecture on this master piece.(Refer MD_CMD)




In this lecture Sastrigal covers Upanishad,Brahmasutra as well as Geetha and

aptly covers importance of this Upanishad among the ten principal Upanishads.




During Sankara Jayanthi in 2007 Sastrigal gave a lecture on .Brahmasuthram based

on Annambhatta’s vritti.Again Polagam Sastrigal had written a bhoomika and his lecture

was based on this masterpiece.A supplementary lecture was given at Narmada flats and

both have been ported here.(MD_BS)

I am glad to inform you that our own web site for Advaita Siddhi and the Upanshad Bhashyas

has now been established and has become operational under the following reference:



Some improvements are required and these will be done progressively.

After reaching the site, interested users have to register themselvesf with email ID in order

to listen to or download the lectures. Facility to download upto five files per day has been provided.


I would like to thank all the volunteers who have worked with me to realise this project. Sri.PN

Sundaresan deserves special mention; he has been recording and editing the

the Advaita Siddhi lectures. We are confident that with the support of all, we could record the lectures

using better  technologies and provide audio tracks with better quality
