Self Inquiry Teachings on Non-Duality,

A traditional Vedanta seminar by James Swartz

Vedanta is not a philosophy or a mystical path. It is a proven means of self knowledge, compiled over thousands of years by countless Indian Seers that systematically reveals the irrefutable logic of the nature of reality to inquiring minds. It is “the knowledge that ends the quest for knowledge” and irrevocably removes ignorance of our true nature as whole and complete action less awareness. Once this knowledge is assimilated and the Self revealed to be yourself, existential suffering ends.

James Swartz, a native of Montana, was a successful businessman who was awakened in the Sixties by a powerful epiphany and made his way to India where he became a disciple of Swami Chinmayananda, one of India’s most respected sages. Since the Seventies James has taught Vedanta to thousands worldwide. He presents the brilliant teachings of traditional Vedanta in a systematic, lively, and humorous manner. James is the author of How to Attain Enlightenment (Sentient Publications) and other books. His website is a major resource of non-dual Vedanta.
