There is a question if there is something called as Sankara's Vedanta. He explained his point. I will say that there definitely is such a Vedanta. The reason I say this is because if there is a stream of thought which says that Vedanta is the end of the Vedas, then to claim that Dvaita and Advaita is one, is very difficult. Advaita is the straight opposite of Dvaita. When both these are also Vedanta, then it is is important to raise Sankara's Vedanta as a separate stream. Because more than 20 pandits who wrote commentaries for the Brahmasutra, never found in it the kind of t

However, at the worldly level, it is a subject that can certainly be a matter of debate, or discussion or argument. Anyway, will start by explaining the circumstances that brought Swami Chidanandapuri, the individual, to this event. A per...

There are two videos which demonstrate some principles of sound and how they are used.

This is an important video by Rajiv Malhotra on Indic Inner Sciences and how they have been appropriated by the West to create a whole host of practices with Western perspectives and yet no credit given to India at all in the end. Those of you who do American-style yoga or "mindfulness meditation", please understand where these practices really originate from - Hinduism/Buddhism. There is the danger of the digestion of Indic technology from Inner Sciences into Western practices that would be and (some) are already trademarked or copyrighted exclusively to the "originators" of knowledge who merely did the following: 1) studied the knowledge 2) picked out what was acceptable to the Western/Christian mindset 3) took that acceptable knowledge ...
