Vedanta is derived from two words, veda knowledge and anta end. Vedanta means the culmination of knowledge. It is the ancient Indian philosophy which answers the fundamental questions of life.
This ancient philosophy presents the eternal principles of life and living. It enables a life of mental peace combined with dynamic action in the world. Equips one with clarity of intellect to deal with the challenges of life. Above all, it leads one to the ultimate goal of Self- Realization.
One person smokes a cigarette and finds pleasure in it. Another person detests it. One lady divorces her husband. Another craves for and marries the same man. Therefore, pleasure and pain are not inherent in objects and beings of the world. It is in how you relate to them. Vedanta is the art of relating to the world. Mastering this technique, you lead a smooth, pleasing existence – to yourself and to others. *
Millions of doctors have graduated from medical schools, but one person discovered the cure for tuberculosis. One person found out how to transplant a kidney. Millions of engineers passed out of engineering schools but one person designed the Panama Canal. One person devised the Euro Tunnel. What separates the achievers from the rest? It is the intellect which is distinct and different from intelligence or knowledge gained from schools and universities. Vedanta enables you to develop the intellect – the capacity to think, reason, judge and decide. Only then does your intelligence take the right direction in life making you successful and peaceful in this world.*
