Self Investigation society

We have founded an association called ‘Itsetutkimus’ (Self Investigation society) on February 1, 2023.

The purpose of the association is to continue our Self Investigation activities and gatherings a little more regularly and to add studies where we review, for example, the most important teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, ‘Nan Yar? (Who am I?), ‘Ulladu Narpadu’ (of 40 stanzas) and ‘Upadesa Undiyar’ (Essence of Spiritual Teachings).

We’ve been meeting live or remotely for about six years now, and we feel it’s necessary to take our activities a little deeper into actual teachings and practicing self-research. Although self investigation, like virtually all spiritual methods, is an individual path, sharing experiences along the way is felt to be beneficial. In addition, we can learn from each other and get different perspectives on our own training.

If Advaita Vedanta and the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi are of interest to you, you are warmly welcome to join the Self Investigation society as a member.
