Vedanta is derived from two words. Veda knowledge and anta end.

The eternal science

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. 

You may have a good standard of living but how is your 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. We aim to establish a higher standard of life in Sri Lanka by making the knowledge of Vedanta available to schools, universities, corporations and the society at large.
