Welcome to Advaita Utsav

International Conference

Oneness is the most sought after in the variously divided contemporary world. The thought and practice that contributed and has potential to contribute further to oneness is Advaita, the non-dualism. The word Advaita has been variously translated into English so far. Among these 'Non-dualism’ is closer to the etymological meaning of the word 'not being two, but oneness or singularity is the essence of every thing'. Adi Shankara, the fountain-head of the spread of the Advaita school of Vedanta is a great integrator. He integrated the two branches of Mimamsa, the discipline of Vedic hermeneutics. Dharma-oriented or Karma(duty/action/ritual)-oriented branch is known as Purva Mimamsa or Mimamsa. Moksha (consciousness/essence)-oriented branch is known as Uttara Mimamsa or Vedanta.

Both of the systems interpret Vedic statements from worldly as well as transcendental point of view respectively.
