Vedanta - The Timeless Philosophy

Vedanta is derived from two words, Veda means knowledge and anta means end. Vedanta means the culmination of knowledge. This ancient philosophy presents the eternal and universal principles of life and living. These principles transcend the barriers of race, religion, caste and creed. The study and practical application of Vedanta helps one to develop clarity in thinking, purity of emotion and dynamism in action. Thus Vedanta provides the technique to achieve success and peace in all aspects of life – professional, social and personal. Above all it ushers one to the ultimate human perfection, the state of Self-realisation.

Standard of Living vs Standard of Life

Science improves the standard of living by providing better comforts, amenities and facilities. Whereas Vedanta improves standard of life by reducing stress and bringing peace and happiness.
