What is Vedanta?

Vedanta is a complete system of knowledge that improves the entire personality — physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. Originating in the Himalayas thousands of years ago, Vedanta presents eternal principles that promote mental health and wellbeing. These principles can be applied in your home, in your office, and in society at large. With Vedanta you achieve the elusive combination of happiness and success.

Our Teacher in Perth

Meredith Forder is a Vedanta Practitioner, who has spent over 25 years studying and researching the ancient wisdom of Vedanta and how it benefits modern-day health and happiness. Meredith first came across Vedanta in 1992 when she read a book called the Vedanta Treatise and met the author A. Parthasarathy at a retreat in Perth, WA. Six weeks later she was at the Vedanta Academy in India, where she lived and studied for six years. Today Meredith heads the work of Vedanta Institute Perth, a non-profit organisation working to promote mental health and wellbeing in Perth and around Australia.

Vedanta Yoga

Yoga is not just breathing exercises and postures. Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means to unite. The implication is that we have separated from our true Self. Vedanta, through the 3 Yogas plus meditation, unites us with our Self. The 3 Yogas are Karma, Bhakti and Gnana Yoga. Vedanta prescribes these 3 Yogas as essential pre-meditative practices that prepare your mind for meditation, so that you can meditate effortlessly.

Our Inspiration

A. Parthasarathy has written 12 books and addressed audiences around the world, including Nasa, Google and Microsoft. His academy in India, teaches students how to live a both peaceful and successful life.

I’ve founded five businesses, taken one public, and read hundreds of books on management. What amazes me is Swamiji’s ability to cover all that and more in one seminar.

Time spent with Swamiji and Vedanta allows you to remove the veil through which you experience everyday life and become exposed to a world of positive living, action and peace.
