Adventures in Advaita Vedanta, the philosophy and science of spirit. We are one you and I; are you curious why?..

THE ADVENTURE

HARI OM!

Anyone arriving at any time can simply start at the very first post and work their way through at their own pace.

Paramahansa Yogananda

Hari OM
Story-day is for cultural exploration, puraanas and parables and finding out about leading lights in spiritual philosophy.

We shall this month look at some other leading 'lights' in the Vedantic parampara.

Paramahansa Yogananda (18931952) is considered one of the preeminent spiritual figures of modern times.

Author of the best-selling spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, this beloved world teacher came to America in 1920 from his native India and was the first great master of yoga to live and teach in the West for an extended period (more than 30 years). He is now widely recognized as the Father of Yoga in the West. He founded Self-Realization Fellowship(1920) and Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (1917), which continue to carry on his spiritual legacy worldwide under the leadership of Brother Chidananda.

[NB; although not a Vedantin as such, Paramahansa referred to Advaita as well as Sankhya and Kriya as paths to enlightenment. He is highly regarded and deserves mention here.]
