'VEDANTA' literally means 'the end of the vedas' - The upanishadic teachings at the end of the vedas.
Man's seemingly logical and rational perception is based on inputs gathered from the five senses which are at best, imperfect in collecting data and at worst, illusory and misleading.
Are there other instruments of perception in the human system which can be activated?
Many of the principal Upanishads convey the idea that our finite and conditioned minds cannot touch that which is infinite - the supreme being.
The Kena Upanishad, begins with the question - Who is it that originates thought when we say that the mind thinks? who is it that sees when we say the eye sees?
This is the definitive screen biography comprising the life, experiences and teachings of Sri M—the spiritual guide, social reformer and educationist. Born into a Muslim family in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, his transformational journey, from a young boy to a living yogi, is a fascinating story symbolized by single-minded discipline and dedication.
Kathopanishad comes as part of the Yajurveda. It is the story of Nachiketas, son of Vajashravas asking some important questions about existence. This ancient story, which has been mentioned in various other scriptures, is discussed in the Kathopanishad in detail so that it helps one understand the deeper aspects of being. Kathopanishad is one of the ten principal Upanishads.
Is reaching our spiritual goal a matter of time, effort or grace?
Sri M: I am convinced that it is all three that matter. Without grace there will be no effort. Once grace is received and effort begins, it then depends on who makes the effort and with what background it is made. Depending on that, the time required is decided. The more the effort is applied, the more grace is attracted; they are all interdependent.
