As part of a 21-volume series, this edition points out that Vedanta is not a religion, as such but a religion itself in its most universal and deepest significance. Buddhism is virtually Hinduism, experienced and spoken by Gautam Buddha and properly channalised and perfected as a reformist movement.

The Vedic Sages and Buddhist Saints had much in common in their practice of yoga. The Buddha emphasized the need for the mystical realization of the sage through deep meditation and called upon his disciples to follow the path of renunciation and yogic discipline; many Buddhist saints possessed supernatural powers through yoga. The Buddha also taught that all existence is subject to the law of karma, that rebuth is the lot of man, and that suffering is due to attachment-beliefs which were commonly held in his time by followers of the Vedas.

Buddhism’s one of the numerous offshoots of the Vedic religious tradition. It wanted to project the enlightened one (Buddha) far above the natural gods of the Vedas. There is now a substantial interest in the world in Hinduism and its offshoot Buddhism.

Some of the greatest discoveries by our Vedic seers are the invention of what we call the decimal system and binary systems of numbers. The entire span of modern mathematical and computer science is based on this discovery made in India. All parts of spiritual exploration are valid, and there are no such things as hereby and blasphemy. This is what make Hinduism pluralistic. Any accommodation of a belief system that denies one’s freedom of choice and of conscience is fundamentally incomplete with Hinduism.
