Vedanta is one of the world’s most ancient religious philosophies and one of its broadest. Based on the Vedas, the sacred scriptures of India, Vedanta affirms the oneness of existence, the divinity of the soul, and the harmony of religions. Truth is one, as the ancient Vedanta scriptures proclaim; sages just call it by various names.
Vedanta is the philosophical foundation of Hinduism. But while Hinduism includes aspects of Indian culture, Vedanta is universal in its application and is equally relevant to all countries, all cultures, and all religious backgrounds. Truth is truth no matter what culture it is wrapped in.
We draw our inspiration from the Vedanta philosophy as interpreted by Sri Ramakrishna, one of the world’s most spiritually illuminated teachers and the inspiration for the Ramakrishna monastic order. Although not officially affiliated with the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, the Ramakrishna Vedanta Association of Thailand was founded in 2004 by Swami Damodarananda, a senior monk of the Ramakrishna Order, and currently is overseen by Swami Samachittananda, spiritual head of the Ramakrishna monastery in Singapore. We are registered with the Royal Thai government.
