Vedas are sacred scriptures of ancient India. The philosophy that is contained at the end of these texts is called Vedanta. The word Vedanta is composed of two root words: “Veda” (knowledge) and “anta” (end of), which implies the philosophical conclusion that exists at the end of Vedas. This Vedanta philosophy prescribes to the thought that Self-realization is beyond the limits of intellectual knowledge.
Vedanta is the universal religion that goes beyond caste, creed, race, and color and is truly applicable to all human beings. It posits that God is infinite existence, infinite consciousness, and infinite bliss. It resides in the heart of every living being as a divine Self, which is pure, stainless, and ever blessed. The main tenet of Vedanta is to realize this divine self and manifest divinity in one’s life time.
