Experience deep peace and connect to the love and consciousness that underlie everything

Advaita is a philosophical and spiritual tradition of self-realization. At the heart of Advaita is the concept of unity. The Sanskrit word Advaita means "not two," or nondual. This philosophy asserts that there is something essentially good, intelligent and awake in each of us—and that something is no different from the essence of this creation.

Advaita’s approach is fundamentally experiential. Deep peace and connection to the love and consciousness that underlies all can be understood and experienced with guidance, practice, and self-examination.

Four Key Points

  • Advaita is our foundation. It serves as the basis for our philosophical teachings and practices at the Advaita Meditation Center.
  • Advaita is practical. This 3,000-year-old tradition still presents clear, practical guidance for living an effective and fulfilling life.
  • Advaita transcends a religious framework. It is a philosophical and spiritual tradition of self-exploration and self-discovery.
  • Advaita can lead to self-realization. In other words, Advaita can awaken us to the full, joyous unity of the consciousness shared by all.
