〰️ About Vedanta 〰️

At the center of Vedanta (one of the world’s most ancient spiritual philosophies, based on the sacred scriptures of India) is a simple idea, that all is one. The eternal, formless, sacred ground of being, known as Brahman, takes form in the field of time as matter, energy, and consciousness. In this sense, everything is Brahman, including us. This beautiful and challenging portrait of reality makes the whole world a holy place and our own lives temples.
