Christ taught in the Sermon on the Mount that God can be seen and that divine perfection can be achieved. 

These talks by Swami Prabhavananda present Christ's teachings from the perspective of Vedanta. Christ instructs us to be still and know that we are God. He tells us be perfect, even as the father in heaven is perfect, that the pure in heart shall see God.  All of this makes far more sense when considered from the standpoint of Vedanta Philosophy.

Note that the book is based on recorded classes which we now offer as free MP3 files. It's helpful to have the book and follow along the talk.

Received the order very quickly. I read this book many years ago, and remembered it as quite inspiring, so wanted to have it available to read it again.


Positively the Best!

This is by far the greatest book I have ever read in explaining Christ's teachings from a all inclusive non-dualist perspective! It is the single vest East meet West book I have ever read on Jesus. The Vandanta Society surpasses any other source in achieving this! I can't recommend thus book enough!

The Sermon on the Mount According to Vedanta

I had already read this book twice during Vedanta retreats, and decided to purchase it when I wanted to read The Sermon on the Mount from Jewish, Vedanta, and Christian perspectives. Swami Prabhavananda is so insightful in this book! It is definitely one of my favorite books. The book arrived in perfect condition and rapidly from Vedanta Press.

Review By David S


The way the swami blends east and west seamlessly is wonderful. It explains the Sermon on the Mount in a way that is meaningful and inspiring. I was raised in a Christian tradition but have been embracing Vedanta and this allowed me to find grounding in Christianity and expand into Vedanta. Have read this book multiple times and will be reading it many more. Have gifted it to several others. Highly recommended.

Sermon on the Mount according to Vedanta

Beautiful book! As a practicing Catholic, I appreciate the insights on the Sermon on the Mount by Swami Prabhavananada. I bought this book because I respect Swami and I feel that his translation of Bhagavada Gita was the best.

Sermon on the Mount

I've read it before and this time was a gift. Very inspirational.

Review By David S

Very insightful

This was a wonderful book that melded the Christian and Vedantic theologies seamlessly. It was easy to read and most importantly made concepts which often are obscured with overly complex or Sanskrit heavy language, easy to comprehend. It demonstrates beautifully how all religions are in reality saying the same thing.
