Why Is It So Confusing?
Swami Atmajnanananda

The tra­di­tion of Vedan­ta presents the beau­ti­ful­ly ratio­nal phi­los­o­phy of the one­ness of exis­tence; at the same time, fol­low­ers of this tra­di­tion are often seen to engage in so many rit­u­als, and to wor­ship a pletho­ra of deities. Why all this con­fu­sion? Swa­mi Atma­jna­na­nanda exam­ines this ques­tion in this lec­ture deliv­ered on April 24, 2011.
