Vedanta, Ishvara and the importance of devotional practices - James Swartz - Yoga of Love, Vedanta

Vedanta: means of knowledge based on the upanisads or
knowledge that ends the quest for knowledge. Modern advaita
teachers and qualifications. Arguments from satya viewpoint
and from the mithya viewpoint. Example of Ramana Maharshi,
his spiritual experience and the knowledge he got from it.
Knowledge is the only way to get free because I am already
free. But I am ignorant of this fact. You know you exist and that
you are conscious. But you don‘t know that you are limitless
and free. Vedanta helps you to remove the notion that you are
incomplete. The scriptures reveal something to you that you
already know. Swami Chinmayananda: gurus are temporary
psychological aide. Verse 36: One achieves devotion by
worshiping the Lord ceaselessly. Every action becomes a
worship if you offer it to the Lord. Be a caretaker of all the
things borrowed by the Lord. Verse 37: One achieves devotion
by hearing and talking about the Supreme Lord’s special
qualities, in every relationship. Avoid gossip. The world is a
shining reflection of the Lord‘s glory. Go back to the source
whenever you see an object. Isvara is both the intelligence and
the matter for the creation. Everything is Isvaras body. Two
creation teachings: projection teaching and cause and effect
teaching. Mandukya Upanishad. Location of objects teaching.
You love love. We have to know that objects are love even
though they don‘t look like love. You should question what you
see and look deeper.
