What is Vedanta

The Vedanta Centre is a branch of the Ramakrishna Order in India. Its main objective is to spread the universal message of Vedanta. Vedanta is an ancient philosophy of India from which many schools of Hinduism and Buddhism have evolved. It teaches that our true nature is spiritual and that we may realize this directly through practices such as;

  1. Devotion & worship (Bhakti Yoga),
  2. Learning & self-inquiry (Jnana Yoga),
  3. Reflection and meditation (Raja Yoga) and
  4. Serving God in mankind (Karma Yoga).

These are the “Four Yogas” taught by Swami Vivekananda, as first mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita. The Centre teaches the ancient teachings of Vedanta in a modern way, as propagated by Sri Ramakrishna and his most illustrious disciple Swami Vivekananda. The motto of the Ramakrishna Order is, ‘for the liberation of the self and for the good of the world’. Like all the centers of Ramakrishna Order, the Vedanta Centre is also engaged in preaching the spiritual truths and serving the society. The aim of the Centre is to bring a better understanding of the concepts of Vedanta and its application in practical life. Weekly programs and classes are conducted with this aim in view.
