***Ask SwamI***

what is Vedanta?

  • Vedanta is a way of life based on a higher view of reality as pure consciousness both transcendent and immanent.
  • Vedanta is the “Integral Science of Consciousness."
  • Vedanta is the “Science of Spirituality” based on the eternal, universal truths and laws of the spiritual world.
