Vedanta represents all knowledge I have known and will ever know. It equates the Mystery of life with the Self of Vedantic philosophy, the same understanding but expressed in the culture of India. Based on ancient Hindu texts, Vedanta embraces all possible paths as being valid and true, with there being as many possible paths as there are people. Each personal journey becomes a unique tradition unto itself, our freedom and joy being a personal direction and expression. As we gain knowledge on our path through and for ourselves, the best that can be offered to us supports our own inner wisdom and guidance.
