  • New  Non-Dualism & Personality - Video

    "Non-Dualism" is one of the most misunderstood, misquoted and abused Vedantic philosophical terms thrown about the American spiritual scene today. In this highly philosophical talk, Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya explains the philosophy and history of Non-Dualism, as well as many of the philosophical issues revolving around this important concept.

    How can the Absolute be simultaneously described as saguna (with attributes) and nirguna (without attributes)? How is it possible for Consciousness, as an ontologically unitive locus of awareness, to exhibit the transformative modifications necessary in its manifestation of will (sankalpa)? How does the ontological One become and reconcile the functional Many? Does the non-dual nature of the Absolute preclude personality (vyaktitva) and qualitative variegatedness (vishishtatva) or necessitate it?

    In this amazing talk, Sri Acharyaji separates authentic Vedantic truth from made-up New Age nonsense.

    The highest culmination of the entire tradition of Yoga spirituality is the process known as prapatti, or atma-nivedana, complete self-surrender to the Divine in pure, loving devotional consciousness.

In this incredible video, Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya - the greatest living guru and representative of the Sanatana Dharma tradition alive today - reveals to us what is the nature of the path of surrender.
