In my opinion, paying for the course is no different from going to the
store and buying a book. Especially, when you can ask questions in return,
and get answers, unlike in a book. The knowledge is priceless, accepted.
That should not mean that it should not be structured or terms set for its
access. It's human tendency to value something more only when you have to
part with something else. Especially money. In olden days, one had to wait
for the teacher to accept you as a valid disciple to ask the question. You
can end up waiting 10 years to ask one question. None of us today are
qualified (or even ready!) for that level of discipline.
Just my 2 cents.

hariH OM !!
Do the members think that a eVedanta course which
seeks/suggests minimum $ 350 per year be promoted ??
Can the knowledge of Vedanta be sold in 24 e-mail
capsules and concluded with a certificate (for what
purpose !! ). Do whatever you can to defeat any trend
of minimum fee/donation based Vedanta education. Let
us tell everybody that Vedanta is priceless Knowledge
of the great Rishis of yore and practiced now by
Om Namo Narayanaya !!
