Nehru Centre talk: Does that mean I am God?: Understanding Vedanta?
8 South Audley Street
London, W1K 1HF
A talk by Dr Nick Sutton of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies
Vedanta is today the predominant form of Hindu religious philosophy and has been so for many centuries. But what does Vedanta actually teach? And how accurately do the writings of Shankaracharya reflect the ideas of the Upanishads on which Vedanta is supposed to be based. In this talk we explore these and other questions with particular emphasis on the Vedantic notion of inner divinity and what that implies for human life.
