Shanti Sadan is a centre of the way of Self-Knowledge, Adhyatma Yoga, and the philosophy of non-duality, Advaita Vedanta.

Advaita Vedanta teaches that the true Self of each individual is not in essence different from the non-dual reality underlying all. Adhyatma Yoga provides practices through which this identity may be approached.

The realization of this identity brings inner freedom, peace, fearlessness and lasting fulfilment.

The practices include ethical living, devotion to truth, study, service and meditation.

From Self-Knowledge Journal: Your Real Nature is Perfection

"The fount and origin of perfection is the innermost Self and this immutable essence is also the hidden source of our worldly joys. It is for this reason that the Self is spoken of in the Upanishads as the dearest element in all experience and that Self-knowledge or Self-realisation is the supreme value of life and its ultimate purpose..."

From Your Real Nature is Perfection in the Summer 2017 issue of Self-Knowledge Journal.
