What is Vedanta Advaita?

Vedanta is a metaphysical system of thought. Vedanta has to do with the recognition of the essence of Being and with the fact of knowing why things exist and what reality is. It tries to unravel the process of existence and reality, and give shape to the fundamental questions that the human being asks about himself.

Vedanta affirms that the way of knowing and interpreting the world, the answer about the why of things and the solution to the dilemma of existence is achieved through a correct process of understanding and discernment. What is sought is the understanding of what is, since it implies knowledge and knowledge. But it is not a knowledge that is in the books; it is an intransmissible knowledge that operates only when consciousness associates itself, that is, when attention is attended to without any additional element to attend to.

What is Non-duality?

The concept Non-duality is a term coined by the Eastern tradition, specifically by the Vedanta Advaita metaphysical system, whose essential purpose is to name the special type of object-subject relationship that operates in deep states of cognition related to Concentration and Meditation. .

Nonduality is the essence of eastern metaphysical thought. Its description allows the knowledge of the transcendence of the human being. Their analysis enables us to have a clear and concise understanding of the real ordering of nature.

Non-duality is an exquisite idea that can be related to science, art, religion and philosophy. That is one of those strange tools that the investigator encounters when he waves in the depths of the ocean of himself.

Is any meditative practice valid?

Any meditative practice is valid as long as it is carried out under a specific canon that truly directs you to what you are looking for. The basis on which our meditative practice is based is the perception of Non-duality. Any practice that does not offer this cognition and does not seek this result cannot be called meditative practice.

The practice not carried out correctly leads to a state of interior mental perception of suggestion, visualization or thought that has to do with the relational and egoic mind. Meditative practice is a state of Non-dual perception that can be achieved through two basic pathways: the external path, which leads us to perceive information through the senses, or the internal path, in which case the senses do not intervene to perceive thoughts . Hence, internal practice and external practice are considered as tools of self-knowledge.

Is physical posture important in meditative practice?

Physical posture in meditative practice is important only to the extent that the body is comfortable enough not to be caught by the tactile condition of pain due to being too quiet for a long time when practicing. The position, in itself, is not important, since finally the meditative practice is basically based on the fact that the attention is preferably placed on the internal witness of the cognition, and not on the thoughts that emerge internally. However, it is very difficult to place “attention on the caregiver” when the body bothers or when there is pain. To obviate this, a position that is firm and comfortable enough to also prevent sleep is suggested. It should be a posture that invites the practice of internal observation in a clear way, that does not induce sleep drift or generate excessive thoughts. Physical posture is not the ultimate goal of practice, let alone internal practice.
