Vedanta Sadhana: Application in Daily Activities

Indica Moksha (Advaita Academy) is pleased to announce the 4th edition of ‘Global Festival of Oneness’ (GFO2023) celebrating one of the foremost thinkers and socio-cultural-spiritual architects of Indian civilization – Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya Bhagavadpada.
Since last three years, we have been hosting the Global Festival of Oneness on the occasion of Shankara Jayanti as a one-month long online celebration of the life, works, and legacy of the Shankaracharya who is the most exceptional and revered teacher in Advaita Sampradaya.

The festival has been conceived as our tribute and show of reverence towards the entire Advaita Guru-Parampara that starts with Bhagavan Sadashiva, has Adi Shankaracharya in the middle, and is still continuing with our own Shrotriya and Brahmanishta Acharyas today.
This year also we are celebrating the month long festival from April 25 till May 24. The festival will feature nearly 50 Sages, Scholars, and Seekers who will share about Acharya Shankara’s life, philosophy and the relevance of his teachings today.

There will be two sessions every day.
The morning session (7:00am-8.00am IST) will focus upon a thematic treatment of Shankaracharya’s Prashtana-traya Bhashya and his other works aimed at benefiting serious seekers of Vedanta.

The evening session (7:00pm-8.00pm IST) will focus upon highlighting not only the life and contributions of Shankaracharya, but also on ‘Applied Vedanta’, how Advaita is relevant today in different fields.

Interested should register for the zoom session. Register once & attend to all sessions

In this session Dr. Nori Sivasenani Ji will speak on Sankara’s Vedanta Sadhana: Application in Daily Activities


Dr. Nori Sivasenani

Dr. Nori Sivasenani is an MBA from IIM, Ahmedabad who is presently working as a Data Science Manager in Microsoft at Hyderabad. Hailing from a traditional, observant family, he studied Sanskrit formally by taking a sabbatical from his work. He completed MA in Sanskrit (Gold Medalist) from Osmania University and then did an M. Phil in Translation Studies from University of Hyderabad, studying Sanskrit to English translations in Vedanta. His Ph. D. in the area of Philosophy of Grammar and Advaita Vedanta was completed under the guidance of Mahamahopadhyaya Prof. Korada Subrahmanyam in 2016, under whom he studied Vyakarana and Mimamsa extensively along with Vedanta. Following the footsteps of MM Korada, and the traditional framework, he uses a holistic approach to a given issue applying concepts from all the Vidyasthanas and not restricting oneself to the field subject at hand. This can be seen in all his works ranging from an estimate of Swatii Tirunal to the Philosophy of Kalidasa or the interaction amongst Vyakarana and Mimamsa, with ultimate effect on Vedanta in examination of a simple sandhi (Dadhyatra is not dadhi atra). His areas of interest are Vedic studies, Vedanta, Vyakarana, Mimamsa, and Dharmsastra He also discovered that Sabarasvamin's understanding of sound propagation matches perfectly with the modern scientific description. He served for many years on the Executive Committee of Sura Bharati Samiti, Hyderabad which is involved in the propagation and promotion of Sanskrit, apart from publishing many books in Sanskrit and translations from Sanskrit. He is the Vice President of Nori Charitable Trust, which amongst other things, has been conducting an annual Bhagyanagara Veda Sabha for the last eighteen years in Hyderabad, where Vedic scholars from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh participate. He taught courses in Linguistics, Translation Studies and Sanskrit at under-graduate and post-graduate level in Osmania University (Nizam College and Arts College), University of Hyderabad and Telugu University as guest-faculty and part-time lecturer, apart from teaching Sanskrit to many students at Sura Bharati Samiti and elsewhere and delivering lectures for the ePGPathasala on a wide range of topics. He recently translated the Sarva Vedanta Siddhanta Sara Sangraha from Sanskrit to English, which is available at https://stage.srirangadigital.com/sss_advaita/display/prakarana/sarvavedantasiddhantasarasangraha. His other works are available at https://uohyd.academia.edu/SivasenaniNori
