Welcome to a study of Satya advaita Experience of the author

First, Satya Advaita is a process, a yoga, of seeking the truth by oneness with truth. It is not a Vedanta as yet another conception of the end to the Vedas that started in Hinduism thousands of years ago: Veda' means the Vedas, the revealed knowledge of what reality consists of, the character of the being, being 'Bheda' and Anta' meaning the 'End', that is the final chapter in the developing evolution of Hinduism. It is a individual journey of life, perfected to attain the highest level of truth. The truth realised by the auther is a Vedanta, named and redefined as Vishista-Advaita Vedanta.

It just so happens, that I got allured into conducting this search for the Nature of Reality. It started 23 years ago from a set of visions that I experienced which was coupled with my utterances and activities in responding to colleagues and senior management at the Institute that I worked in, and from which I was dismissed from service for being blameworthy of gross misconduct.

It lead me on a search for the truth about myself and my actions as constituting a story with a meaning, for it is a real-life story, not a work of fiction that can rest on the book shelves.

I explored all my actions in light of those early visions which could never be discarded as psychiatric hallucinatons that had rendered me in mental hospital on two occasions over this period and I still regarded as a mental patient by the State having to taking anti-psychotic, anti-depressant, and mood-stabilising medications to this day.

No one can take what I say seriously but I have survived till the age of 64, so am still living in the Community and not in a mental hospital or a prison even for all my conduct, and still have my pension to get me bye till I die.

So I have decided to write out my thoughts here on what constitutes my experience that I define under the yoga philosophy of Satya Advaita. The diehard seeker of the truth will find that it does lead to the ultimate realisation of the state of human endeavour that is encapsulated under the Vedanta called Vishista-Advaita Vedanta. I hope to condense all my previous assessments with a renewed focus on objectivity so as not to mislead anyone reads this pages.

Yours sincerely
