Discover how the crown jewel of Hindu teachings can enrich your life and spirituality.

Guarded for centuries by saints and ascetics in the forests and mountains of India, the universal principles of Vedanta were deemed too precious to be understood by the masses until Swami Vivekananda first introduced them in the West at the end of the nineteenth century.

Today Vedanta’s principles of self-awareness, self-knowledge and self-control are available for anyone who wants to enrich their life by following this ancient tradition. Fusing science, philosophy, meditation and contemplation, these timeless teachings encourage spiritual growth by inviting critical inquiry, encouraging honest doubt and providing realistic explanations of the mysteries of spiritual quest.

This comprehensive guide examines in detail the tenets of Vedanta, its relationship to other spiritual paths and its applications for your own spiritual journey, such as:

  • Re-establishing Contact with the Ultimate Reality
  • Acting in the Living Present
  • Awakening Spiritual Consciousness
  • Mastering the Restless Mind
  • Grasping the Essentials
  • Liberating the Soul
  • And much more ...

From the Inside Flap:

Essential keys to a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life—according to the timeless wisdom of Vedanta.

Vedanta maintains that problems and solutions go together; one cannot exist without the other. If nature presents a problem, it also points toward a solution. In suggesting solutions, Vedanta does not deal with the occult or the miraculous and does not cater to fads, whims, or pious imaginations. According to Vedanta, our happiness depends upon peace of mind, peace of mind on self-control, and self-control on awareness of our true Self.
—from the Introduction

This practical volume examines many of the common barriers to spiritual fulfillment—such as questions about doubt of God’s existence, human suffering, death, and many others.

Using language that is accessible to people of all faiths and backgrounds, this book introduces you to the timeless teachings of Vedanta—divinity of the individual soul, unity of all existence, and oneness with the Divine—ancient wisdom as relevant to human happiness today as it was thousands of years ago.
