Hinduism - What Is The Vedanta Society?

 


The oldest Hindu missionary organization in America, established in 1897 by Swami Vivekananda.

The society stresses the philosophical teachings of Vedanta, which it understands as referring solely to the Advaita Vedanta school, Vivekananda’s major emphasis.

The society’s tone has been nontheistic, nonritual, and rationalist; its constituency has been drawn from liberals and intellectuals, such as the writer Aldous Huxley.
