All the Upanishads are the cows; the milker is Krishna; the cowherd boy, Partha (Arjuna), is the calf; men of purified intellect are the drinkers; the milk is the great nectar of the Gita.
The taittirīya upaniṣad (3.6.1) states:
From Happiness, indeed, all these beings originate;
Having been born, they are sustained by (the pursuit of) Happiness;
they move towards and merge in that Happiness (in the end).
The Vedic scriptures clearly state that the purpose of life is to seek Happiness. Inevitably all human beings pursue Happiness unconsciously as if it’s programmed in our DNA.
Giving up all karmas, take refuge in me alone. I will release you from all Karmas; do not grieve. This teaching is never to be taught to the one who has no religious discipline, nor to the one who has no devotion, nor to the one who is not willing to listen, nor to the one who finds fault with me. - Bhagavad Gita (18.66-67)
In his commentary on the bṛhadāraṇyaka upaniṣad (3.3.1), śaṅkara describes ignorance to be threefold:
1. jñāna abhāva - absence of knowledge
2. saṃśaya - confusion or doubts
3. viparīta - contrary notions
Texts From The Scriptures
O unblemished one, two kinds of steadfastness in this world were spoken by Me in the days of yore, through the Yoga of Knowledge for the men of contemplative nature and through Yoga of Action for the men of action.
Brahman is Reality, Knowledge, and Infinity.
Centre for Yoga and Vedanta, Singapore is an organisation for the assimilation of Self-Knowledge (ātmajñana) and the teaching of contemplative practices (dhyāna & dhāraṇā) taught in the Veda.More Info
The teachings of CYV will be rooted in the tradition of Vedanta as taught by the following teachers:
- Swami Dayananda Sarasvati (Arsha Vidya Gurukulam)
- Swami Satprakashananda Sarasvati (Atma Vidya Vanam)
To provide traditional and authentic Vedic wisdom that facilitates Self Knowledge.
The Centre adopts the traditional teaching methodology (adhyāropa apavāda) to unfold Self Knowledge and provides guidance with an enlightened dependance on the teaching rather than the teacher.
