In recent times the universal philosophy of Vedanta has generated worldwide interest and
a desire to know more about this philosophy and its practice. In a world of blurring social
and intellectual boundaries, Vedanta holds hope for a healthy society that transcends
geographical, cultural, and religious differences..
This book is an attempt to portray the essential features of Vedanta without venturing into
its philosophical intricacies. This difficult task has been achieved by Pravrajika
Vrajaprana, a nun from the Sarada Convent, Santa Barbara, USA, in her clear and
concise account of the universal principles of Vedanta.
This volume was originally published by Vedanta Press, Hollywood, in 1999. We are
grateful to them for having given us permission to publish it in the Indian subcontinent.
We have made some changes in this book to suit the Indian readers.
Nowadays we need more emphasis put on harmony like that found in Vedanta. We
believe that this book will inspire its readers to create a harmonious society free from
divisiveness of any kind.
Vedanta is a distillation of everything that is clearest wisest and most compelling in the Hindu religious tradition.
And because one of Hinduism’s core beliefs is in the validity of all paths to God Vedanta itself holds up a kind of mirror to every other religion as well allowing us to see what is clearest wisest and most compelling there too.
I hope this succinct and immensely readable overview will find a wide, wide audience.
