Swami Chidananda Thoughts on Vedanta

The atom bomb of Vedanta is the way to relate yourself to the world of appearance of names and forms. Vedanta wants you to disappear. Vedanta wants you to reduce yourself to a cipher, become nothing. Losing yourself, you gain the whole universe. Holding on to yourself, you lose everything. That is the paradox of life. Those who want to cling to the life of this little ‘I, enter into spiritual death.
When this Vedantic knowledge is gained one remains in total unshaken equanimity, peace and acceptance. One becomes Sthiraprajna.
