Lectures on Yoga and Vedanta given at the Boston Vedanta Society. Vedanta is one of the world's most ancient religious philosophies and one of its broadest. Based on the Vedas, the sacred scriptures of India, Vedanta affirms the oneness of existence, the divinity of the soul, and the harmony of religions. According to Vedanta, God is infinite existence, infinite consciousness, and infinite bliss. The term for this impersonal, transcendent reality is Brahman, the divine ground of being. Yet Vedanta also maintains that God can be personal as well, assuming human form in every age. Vedanta further asserts that the goal of human life is to realize and manifest our divinity. Not only is this possible, it is inevitable. Our real nature is divine; God-realization is our birthright. Finally, Vedanta affirms that all religions teach the same basic truths about God, the world, and our relationship to one another.

Thrilling to have such great spiritual advise on Podcast

I used to attend these lectures by Swami Tyagananda when I was a student at MIT. I missed these for the last 6 years while I have not been in Boston/Cambridge I am so happy that I can listen to this podcast on my daily commute to work, and get inspired as I start and finish each day. Many lectures also best heard many times. The podcast enables re-listening so that I can understand more subtle topics that I might not have fully grasped the first time. Thanks to Swami Tyagananda for this great act of kindness, and to the Boston Vedanta Society devotees for bringing this great weekly experience to those that do not live in Boston/Cambridge or its vicinities. Also congratulations to Swami Tyaganandaji for embracing modern technology for delivering a message that is as old as that stars and the galaxies

This is the best spiritual advice we have heard

Thanks to the Swami for his indepth and very valuable explanantion on the topics discussed here. His hints regarding our daily lives are very helpful. This idea of remembering the Ideal/God during the day are regular intervals is an ancient idea. But hearing it again, put in such simple words, strikes a cord within the heart. Most of all the lectures are purely spiritual and are applicable to one and all. We look forward to hearing more from him and the Vedanta society in Boston. Thank you again.
