A serious and comprehensive introduction to Vedanta and its principles.
220 pages, US hardback
The principles of Vedanta are scientific because they are verifiable and repeatable, democratic because they foster individual freedom, universal because they apply to all people of all time, pragmatic because they focus on human problems and development, and psychological because they relate to human experience.. from the first chapter.
Guarded for centuries by saints and ascetics in the forests and mountains of India, the universal principles of Vedanta were deemed too precious to be understood by the masses until Swami Vivekananda first introduced them in the West at the end of the nineteenth century.

Review By Karen Sic-Cua
The Vedanta Way to Peace and Happiness
Swami Adiswarananda packed all the accumulated wisdom of his life as a spiritual leader and a monk of the Ramakrishna Order into this slim volume. Every page is valuable and there is much to ponder, much treasure from a trusted source. I recommend this book highly.
