Vedanta Center of Atlanta

Dear Devotees and Friends,

This Sunday morning at 11am Br. Shankara will give a talk via Zoom on Setting Aside the Mirror. Join us online, and participate in the discussion!


Because Covid-19 Delta variant infections are occurring even in fully vaccinated people, your Center is again closed to the public until further notice. There will be no in-person activities for now. And please, no visits to the Center unless you make arrangements in advance. As our priority is to keep our devotees, friends and residents of the Center safe, we may raincheck visit requests until a safer time.

Sunday's Talk, Oct. 17th

Join us via Zoom at 

Sage Vasistha told his student, Prince Rama: “O my dear child! How strange is this world-bewitching maya! Being deluded by this maya, one cannot know the Self; though the Self has pervaded all through the limbs of the body. … As (a stage set) or as the mirage water in the desert, are not true, in the similar manner this observable universe is not true.”

To explain what he means by “not true,” Vasistha says:
“This creation, which is merely of the form of a vibration of consciousness alone, is dissolved by accurate knowledge and arises again with false knowledge — just as the false knowledge of the snake arises on the rope.”

According to Vasistha, this vibration of consciousness IS maya, which he describes as illogical, dreamlike, illusory, and deliberately delusory or deceptive, like a magic show.

Your mind is the mirror in which this magic show is reflected — and without spiritual work you may never truly believe it is “but a dream.” As a determined jnana yogi, you can learn how to set aside that mirror and realize the all-pervading, ever blissful Self that is your true original nature. This is what we will discuss on Sunday morning.
