TRUTH – of all words ever spoken by man, perhaps, the only word, ever shrouded by mystery, yet at the same time glowing bright with astonishing clarity! Truth has forced man to think, compelled him to chase it, made him love it. In his quest for Truth, man has sacrificed his life, waged wars over generations and given up his valued possessions only to become wandering seekers. The search for Truth has made great men of mere mortals, yet, for Truth alone brothers have fought, friends separated. Truth has attracted man for ages, at times to take all away from him, at others to fulfill him. Man loves the Truth, and at the same time he fears it. He strives to know the Truth, yet he avoids it. Just when He thinks he is closest to attaining it, the Truth again becomes a distant dream, beyond the reach and scope of the ordinary. Strange indeed are the ways in which the Truth reveals itself. It remains unattained by seeking, yet seekers alone find it. And stranger still is the Truth itself..It is this search for Truth that forms the highest salvation for mankind. It is the realization of this Truth that forms the keynote of the International Vedanta Society.

The Essence of IVS

    • Nothing exists except Brahman , Atman or God, which is one without a second.
    • Brahmajnana , Atmajnana or God-realization is the sole purpose of life. The Guru alone can impart this Knowledge, hence, devotion towards the Guru is indispensable.
    • The Embodiment of Love, Bhagavan is the life force and core of the International Vedanta Society.
    • To spread awareness about the nature of the Self, to make people aware of the existence of God and the process by which to attain It, is the sole objective of the Society.
    • The medium of spreading the essence of this subject is Love, and the chanting of Mahamantra ‘Hare Krishna’.

Five Divine Commands

    • Practice Vedanta daily.
    • Preach Vedanta daily.
    • Take food in return of work.
    • Be sincere in the service of Guru.
    • Shed your life in worship of God.

Our Achievements

'Salvation of the self and well being of the universe'

Serving society

Service above Self is the natural outcome of the practice of religion. We have dedicated our lives to the spiritual awakening of society in its entirety. Love is our way. Love, our medium. It is in love alone that the true nature of the Self finds spontaneous expression.

Preaching Vedanta

Advaita Vedanta forms the essence of our being. In all our activities, be it a public discourse on the subtle verses of the Upanishads or the organization of a medical camp for the residents of a remote village, it is Vedanta we preach, Vedanta we glorify, Vedanta we manifest.

Establishing Harmony

Vedanta explains the diversity of life as the apparent projection of one reality. This knowledge alone, validates the saying, “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” and motivates our drive to restore harmony in a world divided on the illusory lines of religion, race and nationality.

Logo of International Vedanta Society

The waters of the ocean represent the mind, much like the tumultuous tides of the ocean though only near the shore.  Similarly our mind seems restless on the surface, creating  chaos only on the outer periphery. Due to the agitations created by and within the mind, it appears to be a distinct entity. But, deep within, the mind is like the ocean- calm, serene and blissful.

The distant horizon shows the ocean merged with the endless sky, which represents the all pervading nature of the Self or Consciousness. In the likeness of the ocean, the mind too is ever merged with the Supreme Consciousness.

Motto of International Vedanta Society

आत्मनो मोक्षार्थं जगद्धिताय च (Sanskrit) – Atmano Mokshartham Jagaddhitaya Cha

Salvation of the Self and well-being of the universe. (English)

 Liberación del Ser y bienestar del universo. (Spanish)

Our Scriptures state this to be the goal and motto of the life of all human beings. Liberation of the Self from all the bondages of the world by virtue of the knowledge of Brahman is the first and foremost aim, yet at the same time, welfare of the world is what follows next, not as a duty, but as a direct consequence of the love that emanates spontaneously as a result of the realization of oneness with the Universe.
