Another Great Vedanta Teacher

I want to recommend a Vedanta teacher. If you have not yet come across Swami Sarvapriyananda, spiritual leader of the Vedanta Society of New York, I suggest you check him out. He has a large selection of lectures on YouTube.

He is engaging, organized, and has an incredible amount of knowledge. He addresses the challenges of the individual person — the seeker — without ever letting the true, pure non-dual message of Advaita Vedanta be muddied.

He is currently posting an in-depth series on
the introductory text Aparokshanubhuti (Self-Realization), which is a great place for beginners to start, as well as for seasoned Vedantins to gain deeper insight. I also enjoy his open question and answer sessions. Of course, this is all material you are familiar with, if you have been studying Vedanta with James Swartz or another teacher. But sometimes just a slightly different wording or a different example can make a new connection in your mind.

Vedanta really does what it promises to do. It offers a means to liberation through preparing the mind, so that the knowledge of non-dual reality can appear. When the knowledge appears in a prepared,
sattvic mind, all doubt is vanquished, and suffering ends.
