Publisher's Summary

The Sermon on the Mount represents the essence of both Christ's teachings and the teachings of Vedanta, an ancient Indian philosophy that teaches the oneness of life. God lies within us and at the same time is everything we see.

This realization is the aim of all the Vedanta teachings. Christ said, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." "The kingdom of God is within you." "Be ye perfect."

Although theologians are apt to explain away these teachings in various ways, the Vedantists believe Christ meant what he said. Listen to this remarkable recording and discover how Vedanta goes to the very heart of Christ's teaching.Vedanta came to the West in the late 19th century, not to supplant any religion, but to bring a more tangible spirituality to those who seek it. Its goal has never been to proselytize, but to help man realize the divinity within him.

    "Practical and Instructional"

    The insight and ease of communication make this a great book. I learned a lot from Prabhavananda. I listened to it several times and got more out of it each time.

    "Expand & Deepen Your Understanding"

    If you grew up listening to the Sermon on the Mount, this commentary from the Vedanta perspective will enrich your experience of its teachings. The only thing that bothered me was the formal speaking style of the narrator. I imagine his style has won him awards and that other speakers emulate him. But I would prefer a speaker I can relate to. The British theatre trained speaker puts distance between me and the text. I want to be drawn in and the formal elocution does not do it for me.

    "Loved this book! Nice Explanations!"

    the explanations from the vedantic view point are very nice. the narrator did a great job too. I am going to read a few more times to understand it better. I will recommend any devout christian to read this book. it will give them a very good perspective.
