Arunachala Grace - Not specifically about Advaita philosophy, this beautifully produced blog contains stories, pictures and general information relating to Mt. Arunachala and Ramana Maharshi.

Guruphiliac - is the place to go for debunking and exposure of gurus (with humour). The headline claims "Revealing Self-Aggrandizement and Superstition in Self-Realization since 2005" - and it is still going strong!

Awaken to Nonduality contains book excerpts, extracts from other web publications, thoughts and musings on non-duality from several contributors.

Ganapati-Advaita Ashram is the blog of Nathan Spoon, who teaches at this small ashram in Charlotte, NC. His background includes other traditions such as tantra, Kashmir Shaivism and kuNDalinI but Nathan now teaches Advaita and his blog addresses such topics as practice and self-enquiry.

The Philosophy of Advaita Vedanta - Nonduality contains articles on numerous aspects of advaita. These take the form of short definitions or discussions on terms or discrete topics and the emphasis is on traditional interpretation according to Shankara.

Arunachala and Sri Ramana Maharshi - is the weblog of David Godman, the author of possibly the best book on Ramana's teaching, 'Be As You Are'. Its purpose is to provide 'musings on any matters relating to the life and teachings of Ramana Maharshi' and there are numerous quotations and extracts from related books.

Jerry Katz now has a Nonduality blog. Possibly the most 'active' non-dualist on the Internet, Jerry's writing is always readable and interesting and often thought-provoking, whether reviewing books or films (he seems to read more than anyone I know!) or finding the non-dual in the most unlikely places. Read his fascinating piece on lucid dreams on April 29 '08.

Radiance of Being is the blog of Rodney Stevens. Influenced principally by John Wheeler, he provides pointers, reviews, questions & answers and generally expresses observations on 'simply being' in the present.

Beyond Advaita is the blog of Ramesam Vemuri. Presented in a user-friendly manner, it contains numerous well-written posts pertaining to the way in which science is related to nonduality. Ramesam also has a science-based website.

Advaitananda is the blog of Sundararajan Mohan. Attractively presented, it debates how science is beginning to realize that there is a strong link connecting all parts of the universe, and how that ties in with the message of the Vedas.

Wholeness: the Ground of Being is the blog of Harry Liantziris. 'About' non-duality but influenced by Western Philosophy and tending towards neo-Advaita in style and content.
