The following are the sections of the Advaita Discourses part of the site: -



There are a number of sets of essays/extracts discussing aspects relating to the path of Advaita.There are discourses from many other current writers and teachers, although some of these have contributed so many essays that spearate sections have been created for them, with their own menus.

There were around 600 essays of varying length as of Oct 2010. From March 2012, the site has begun to add new material. (Contributions are invited - please use the Contact Form.)

Links to all essays will be available soon at the Blog site.
