Vedanta is the new age dharma that rewrites the rules of religion based on old philosophy and direct spiritual experience. What exactly is religion? A set of beliefs that pitch one against the other but the reality is that there is one single consciousness that prevades all the universe including you. Realizing this through direct experience is what Vedanta stands for. As an indivdual moves on the spiritual ladder, the individual changes from within and that flowering of the consciousness will be felt near and far. Your perception will change and you will flow with nature or consciousness in total harmony and it will bring harmony to your internal and outer orchestra which is divided and fragmented at the individual level. Just look what is happening in your mind and surroundings, its all restlessness and chaos. No doubt, your lives revolve around work while other relationships fall apart and the competitive scenario is such that if you loose focus, you will loose that too. But it leads to disconnection with other people and nature and by the end of your life, you are your shrunken self.
