Tattwamasi conducts classes to explore the essence of the Vedas through this Guru- Shishya tradition to experience and enliven the magnificent way of life. Learning to chant the mantras and suktas is just a part of the many facets of knowledge sharing that happens in these classes.
Some of the Suktas that would be taught are:
- Dasha Shanti Mantra
- Ganesha -Atharvasheersham
- Shri Suktam
- Purusha Suktam
- Devi Suktam
- Nakshatra Suktam
- Navagraha Suktam
- Durga Suktam
- Surya Suktam
- Narayana Upanishad
- Aruna Pradhana
- Rudra Namaka & Chamaka
- Tattireeyopanishat and much more
His teaching style is Traditional and knowledge comes from disciplic succession. He has lots of patience during the teaching and corrects the chanting as required.

It has been a privilege to be part of the group to attend Bhagavad-Gita, DurgaSaptasati& Veda classes from few years at AtmaDarshan Yoga Ashram. The trainers of Tattwamasi are wonderful with deep spiritual knowledge. He teaches with utmost dedication and also ensures that we continue to practice all our learnings. Looking forward to attend yoga & Sanskrit classes as well.

I always had an aspiration for learning Veda in a formal way... By God's & Guru's grace, blessed to be a student of such a scholar from past 2 yrs& 8 months It's a divine experience to understand the different dimensions of Vedas as our Guru inspires us to expand our knowledge by giving us topics & work on them..

I feel blessed and privileged to attend the Veda Classes conducted by PoojyaGuruvulu. As they say a lifetime is not sufficient to learn & master the Vedas, a mere two hours/week probably won't justify it. But these two hours has brought lot of insight into my life and how I live it. Despite of group learning, there is individual attention given to each student which really helps in learning/correcting ourselves (I have been to classes elsewhere, where I could not see this). Apart from learning the Veda mantras syntactically and phonetically, we get to learn about the semantics and the deeper inner meaning of the mantras and how they can be applied to our way of life. This is one thing which stands apart. Discussions are mutual where thoughts/ideas/arguments of every student is welcomed. We are honored to have a teacher who has immense knowledge in the subject and more importantly how it has to be seen or the practicality of it in today's world of Kaliyuga. It is not an 'Athisayokthi' to call our teacher as 'PumbhavaSaraswathi' owing to the knowledge he has and service being done to propagate it. I hope to continue as his Shishya for as long as I could.

The Tattwamasi teachers are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about every aspect of Veda. Our guru is an awesome teacher who knows how-to train new students efficiently. He is extremely patient and he ensures his student has mastered the lesson accurately. He provides wealth of information which is immensely valuable. I enjoy my weekly lessons and look forward to my classes. I highly recommend the coaching and training with Tattwamasi.

I have been learning Veda and other chantings from the classes of Tattwamasi, close to 3 years. It's been a wonderful learning. Appreciate his dedication and commitment in teaching. It's just not Veda and chantings, we get to learn lot of other things related to spiritual practices. My heartfelt thanks to our Sir for his precious time and best wishes to him for his future endeavours.

“I had been searching for Veda classes for almost close to 3 years. Finally I came across Veda classes conducted in BTM Ganesha temple by Tattwamasi.
It was a perfect match to what I was looking for. Veda Reciting followed by in depth explanation of the Vedas and connecting the inner meaning with Current word with stories and scenarios.
Guruji’s Systematic approach with a lot of patience to hear the students queries and doubts is helping students to keep the focus and enabling them to learn qualitatively.
From Past 1.5 years, I am looking forward to the Wednesday and Thursday evening to the Veda classes and eager to learn new things every day. This has resulted in a new way of looking at life with a lot of enthusiasm and improved concentration”

I have been attending Veda classes since one year. There has been a change in my outlook since then. My understanding of philosophy of Hinduism, its deeper meaning, rituals, the love our ancestors had for the nature, their learning and understanding of the whole universe is simply amazing and it is evident in the shastra's and in Sanskrit literature.
I should thank our Guruji, who has been not only helping us in reciting the verses. He has been explaining us how we have to read in Kannada.(which most of us have not learnt till now) There is a divine flow of energy when we are in the class. He has been instrumental in changing the way I started looking Hinduism. Our Guruji's intention is not just make us recite veda verses, it has been to imbibe vedic culture among his students. We discuss topics from science to literature. Astronomy to astrology from shastra's perspective. It has been amazing till now. But I think the journey has only started.
I should once again thank our Guruji and God for this wonderful opportunity.

I was really interested to learn authentic Veda chanting. However, I did not know Sanskrit so well. At this time I learnt about Tattwamasi. I felt like my search ended. From past nine months I am attending his Veda chanting class in BTM layout Vigneshwara temple. He is a fantastic teacher, with scholarly knowledge. He has deep understanding of the scriptures, rituals. His mastery over Sanskrit language is excellent and commendable. On the top of it a superb human being. He makes everyone comfortable in learning and joyful learning.He gives individual attention to each and every student. By giving some interesting assignments he creates curiosity and keeps us learning more. Overall I am having a great joyful time in learning Veda chanting with Guruji and will continue to learn more……
