Our service to the community focuses on the dissemination of Vedanta via the following avenues: weekly classes, youth programmes, talks, retreats, corporate workshops and our annual lecture tour. The daily study of Vedanta develops the human intellect which is the capacity to think, reason and judge before acting. A developed intellect restores peace and happiness within the individual.
The work of our foundation is inspired by A. Parthasarathy or Swamiji, as he is affectionately known. A. Parthasarathy is the pre-eminent philosopher and author. In the course of six decades of selfless service to humanity. Swamiji’s outstanding contribution has been to infuse the eternal wisdom of Vedanta into modern life for peaceful and productive living. In 1988 he founded the Vedanta Academy wherein he imparts Vedanta knowledge to young students from all over the world.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
What People Are Saying
I find the teachings of Vedanta very scientific and methodological. It enables me to practice self control and discipline with the knowledge of an exact science. This has brought about immense happiness and joy in my life. Looking for higher ideals and higher purposes when I do things, it has automatically attracted abundance and peace in my life, without me even asking for it.
I have been a student of the Vedanta course for 2 years and as an expat living in Asia it has been one of the greatest gifts. The course is very well structured, gradually building up the material from easy to grasp ideas leading into a more complex philosophy step by step.
Another benefit of the course is how it teaches you to do constant self reflection and self improvement which becomes a life saver along the way. I really believe this subject should be taught to everyone no matter your age, background, religion as this knowledge is universal and applicable to all of our lives..
Undoubtedly, the Vedanta courses were the most surprising, unexpected additional benefits of moving to Kuala Lumpur. I’ve been introduced to it through my wife because of its symbolism to Hindu gods, which was beneficial for my art at the time, but gradually I’ve discovered so much more behind it; the self-reflection and personal development that completely changed my way of living and looking at things. It also helps that the frequency, dynamic and the quality of the classes are very consistent providing a rich source to contemplate on, so it’s something to rely on, helping you through everyday life.
I have attended a series of Vedanta classes and have read a number of Swami Parthasarathy’s books. I have found the Vedanta philosophy extremely useful in managing stress levels and growing my business. It has enabled me to be an effective leader while being a guiding force for me in mentoring the entrepreneurs of the start-ups that I have invested in. All in all, it has made the process of living life a lot more meaningful and fulfilling.
Without getting to know the subject personally, many people may think Vedanta is related to abstract philosophical concepts or Hindu studies. But in actuality Vedanta provides a very methodical and practical approach on self-development and self-realisation which can be applied to all aspects of life, be it work, businesses, relationships, self-management, etc.
I’ve had the opportunity to attend the weekly classes conducted by the Vedanta Centre since last year and I’ve benefited immensely from the classes. Vedanta is the ultimate subject about life and self-management. Most of our negative emotions such as stress, strain, anger, attachment, etc. arise from the activities of our mind and our inability to dissociate from identifying ourselves to the external world, be it material possessions or the people around us.
The subject sheds light on the various constructs of our faculties: physical body, mind and intellect; and the need to develop our intellect to “supervise” the activities of the mind. The subject encourages us to think, reason and question our actions in our day-to-day life and not to fall foul of the herd instinct.
The textbooks are written in a manner that is easily digestible and understood by the laypersons. The teacher is knowledgeable and aids the students’ understanding by giving ample examples from our day-to-day life. I highly recommend this subject to everyone!
