Summary of the VEDIC WISDOM program

The Vedic Wisdom program is a fresh look at life in the ‘Material world”.

Starting with the common misconception that I am this body, the program brings Ancient Knowledge into today’s conception with some fresh perspectives on the scientific understanding of ‘who’ and ‘what’ we really are.

This program provides a progression of understanding from social perspectives to enlightened realisations.

Without taking a religious position of ‘FAITHS” but rather a universial awareness that we all share many common factors that surpass the social designations, that keep us locked in the bodily conception of life, we explore our eternal relationships.

Much of the program is dedicated to the understanding of the eternal charactoristics of the soul as apposed to the temperary nature of the body.

This show will gradually evolve into the understanding of the five interrelated factors of; nature; the cosmic manifestation, the individual living entities, karma or activities, time; (the duration of the material manifestation), and the Supreme Lord Sri Krsna.

This wisdom is derived from the VEDAS, the oldest scripturs known.

And it is delivered to us through the Disciplic Succession, an unbroked chain of spiritual masters and disciples that are delivering this wisdom from their introduction, many millinium ago up to this very day.

Join me, your host Advaita, every day for a thought provoking review of this timeless wisdom, VEDIC WISDOM.

Advaita Das is the spiritual name given to me by my spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. I was fortunate to meet Srila Prabhupada on several occasions after several years of searching for the meaning of life and the truth about right action.

In the western countries we have all the facilities to achieve most things, so I was inquisitive to know what is the right objective for one to achieve. Since I had a good education and the freedom offered in America, rather than proceeding on a ‘trial an error’ basis I wanted to know the goal and proceed directly rather than waste time.

As the saying goes ‘when the student is ready the teacher appears’ So after reading so many books on philosophy, religion, self realization and yoga one day I got to read one of Srila Prabhupada’s books. I was immediately impressed with his wisdom and clarity on the subject. His teachings not only covered many of the issues I had learned about but further explained vast areas that no other scholar had touched upon. His introducing the Krsna Consciousness philosophy to the world was an amazing revelation of the highest truths.

This started a period of intense study and inquiry that opened my perspective of reality with huge leaps forward in a very short time. This in itself was a testament to the absolute nature of the teachings of Lord Krsna.

After only 6 months of serious study I entered his temple in San Francisco that solidified many of the perspectives I hold most dear today. I participate wholeheartedly in all of the programs instituted by Srila Prabhupada as recommended to purify one’s consciousness and fix the mind in the mood of devotional service to Krsna.

The knowledge imparted by Srila Prabhupada forms the basis of my program, Vedic Wisdom.

On our show listeners can get the understanding imparted to me, and all of Srila Prabhupada disciples, as to the most significant truths that are worth achieving while one has this human form of life.

Subjects such as the explanation of this material world, the truth about the eternal nature of the living entities, the factual understanding about the Lord Sri Krsna, the influence of time and the results of actions we perform and the reactions that they cause, are all discussed on Vedic Wisdom.

The process of purification of our contaminated consciousness from living in this material nature is clearly explained so we can revive our lost spiritual consciousness. This is the prerequisite for returning to the Spiritual World to be in association with the Lord and His eternal associates. This is the type of subjects we discuss on our programs.

The significance of the Hare Krsna Maha Mantra in the process of purification is also the subject of many of our programs.

So you are invited to listen to the Vedic Wisdom and consider the Vedic knowledge for yourself. We hope you will join us by hearing and chanting the Maha Mantra, the great mantra for deliverance;

Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
