Vedanta and Yoga

Lectures and classes on Vedanta and Yoga given at the Ramakrishna Vedanta Society in Boston, USA, by Swami Tyagananda, who is a monk of the Ramakrishna Order. Vedanta means the essence of the Vedas (veda+anta). Although popularly identified with the basic scripture of the Hindus, Vedas are really neither “books” nor essentially “Hindu.” By Vedas is meant the accumulated treasury of spiritual laws discovered by enlightened beings. Vedanta stands for spiritual wisdom that transcends borders defined by religion, culture, race and nationality. It is possible to perceive Vedanta as a spiritual tradition that simultaneously respects and transcends all religions. The practices of Vedanta include prayer, worship, meditation, spiritual study, and selfless service. Vedanta respects all spiritual traditions and encourages everyone to learn from the teachings offered by the prophets and teachers of all religions.

Vedanta stands for spiritual wisdom that transcends borders defined by religion, culture, race and nationality.

These Arati Songs comprises four hymns of praise and supplication to Sri Ramakrishna and Sarada Devi.
These Arati Songs are sung every evening in almost all the centres of the Ramakrishna Order in India and abroad. They are also sung in the homes of many devotees.
The Songs are available on various websites including the Belur Math website

The third hymn is dedicated to Sri Sarada Devi. The Candi, also known as the Durgasaptasati and the Devimahatmya describes the exploits of Sakti or Devi (Power Divine or Mother Divine). The 3 verses of this hymn are actually part of Narayani-Stuti (10-12 Chapter). Since Sri Ramakrishna, at the end of the sodasi-puja to Sri Sarada Devi, on an auspicious day (to mark the end of his spiritual practises) offered his rosary at her feet, symbolizing the fruits of all his sadhanas (spiritual practise) and chanted these three verses, they have now become associated with her.
