Making Vedanta relevant to today’s children

One doesn't have to ignore Vedanta until one reaches a certain age, or level of experience. The attempt here is to present a case study of practically implementing the education of basic Vedantic concepts to children. The case study shared is of a weekly Sanatana Dharma school run in the … Hindu Temple for the past 2 years. The authors put in perspective their attempts to transmit the Vedantic underpinnings of Indic Hindu culture in the process of teaching the traditions of the Sanatana Dharma from India at weekly classes for members' children using contemporary methods of presentation.

Western Identity — Ours and Theirs…Part I

ABSTRACT

The attempt here is to discuss the Westernized Identity over multiple articles. In the beginning we discuss the relevance of this for the Non-Westerner, specifically the Indian. Then we discuss external, i.e. Geographical Sociopolitical & Military aspects of it. The idea of “The West” is so implicit in any discussion, that we forget there is a simple and well-documented history behind the construction of “Western” identity. Much of this series of articles will try to look at a broad overview of this history, i.e. the history of the interaction of ‘The West” with “The Rest”.
