'Vedanta' means the 'end of knowledge'. It presents the philosophy of life and living to combine continual action with enduring peace. Vedanta is the digest of knowledge laid down by sages and thinkers from time immemorial. It belongs to one and all with no distinctions whatsoever. Swami Parthasarathy, the founder of the Vedanta Academy and its chapters worldwide, has translated subtle philosophic themes into practical application for business and living. He is a best selling author, corporate resource and an educator. At 84 he embodies the spirit of Vedanta - Intense Work is Rest. He continues to play cricket as part of the Academy cricket team, winning man of the match awards.
Vedanta equips one with an intellect to meet the challenges of the world. As opposed to intelligence provided by schools and universities. Intelligence helps to make a living, intellect helps to make your life.
Vedanta Institute London hosts annual public lectures, management seminars, weekly classes and general talks in UK & Europe. The weekly classes are conducted by graduates of the Vedanta Academy.
If your new to vedanta, take a quick look some of the talks given on the subject by Swami Parthasarathy. For example the talks on 'Born in Captivity' and 'Virus of Attachment': https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQd_0QkJSV8fwJYZrGvGEQ
