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.

    Pujoniyo Maharaj, Pranam neben. Kichhu bhul-truti hoye gele map korben.

    Which one is more important for today's India. Building a Rama temple (I'm not saying not to build, may be 1km away from the place identified, yield and win strategy) or Building a Happy and Friendly relationship with Neighbors.

    As you have mentioned how far should we go back in the history to correct it. If we go back till when Swami Vivekananda born, we would see a different India today. Obviously you can not chant-out-loud in today's atmosphere, you will see lot of Hanumana dancing on the street. Sometime I feel what a false environment we are living in. All nonsense mob psychology.

    Please share your thought this Ram Navami.
    (Just FYI, in my village, last time I saw a new Hanumana temple build next to the Shiva-lingam and now days Ram Navami is more popular event their than Shiva-ratri, just 5/6 years back history).
