Vedanta study groups

What is Vedanta

Many of us are familiar with Advaita (non-dualism). Less well known is the big picture of the Indian wisdom of which Advaita is part from: Vedanta. The sources of this are the ancient Vedic scriptures, such as the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita

In a small study group a book about Vedanta is read and discussed per chapter. The book below by James Swartz is very suitable for that. There is a Vedanta study group in Arnhem, among others. If you live elsewhere, you can get in touch with other interested parties through this site.
