Since time immemorial there has been a continuous attempt by humanity to comprehend the mysteries of life. There have been many sources of knowledge to draw from. The Vedas are records of the ancient and respected Indian tradition of wisdom.
The Vedas are the oldest records of wisdom pertaining to human existence and evolution. Nearly one billion people throughout the world consider these writings to be sacred. At the same time the Vedas are the least understood and accessible of all ancient holy texts. In spite of the fact that there has been extensive commentaries by scientists, philosophers and other scholars, the Vedas remain mystical and confusing for many people. To study the Vedas in a most practical way we will make use of what has written in the Upanishads.
The Upanishads are an integrated part of the Vedas and the aim of this study is to obtain insight into their deeper significance and into the invaluable merits derived from their practical applications into daily life. Furthermore, this wisdom is an excellent tool to share it with others as a coach/consultant in the practical field of a spiritual life.
This Academical Study Program on Vedic Sciences is composed for students and adults who wish to broaden and deepen their understanding of the Vedic Sciences. After this study one can integrate this Vedic wisdom in any consultant- or coaching practice.
In this intensive study we deal especially with the eternal wisdom of the Upanishads. We learn that the Upanishads contain all of the wise teachings necessary to comprehend existence, creation and human evolution and also how we can successfully apply this knowledge into our daily life.
This course consists of modules, whereby each module is again subdivided into study units. The successful completion of each module gives the student a certain number of study points. At the end of each module a test requiring written answers and consisting of 10-15 questions about the study material will be given to the student.
The program has been individualized (enabling one to be flexible in time and intensity) and is an on-line course which has been formulated by the Dutch University College and allows one to study at home.
One can start anytime with this study.
The study can be done part-time and encompasses a 1,5 year period involving an average of 10 study hours a week for a duration of 63 weeks = 630 studyhours necessary for study + questions = 360 studyhours + thesis = 250 studyhours = 1440 studyhours, which gives 51,5 ECTS points (European Credit Transfer System). Depending on the time available for study, a shortening or lengthening of this study tempo is possible.
Following the successful completion of this study a DUC-diploma Master Consultant Vedic Sciences & Upanishads will be granted (conform Master CVSU).
