Welcome

The Vivekananda Vedanta Society of British Columbia offers talks, meditation meetings, and devotional singing sessions in the Vedanta tradition inspired by Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda.

The Society’s spiritual adviser is Swami Bhaskarananda of the Vedanta Society of Western Washington in Seattle. There are usually two talks a month given by one of the swamis of the Ramakrishna Order, from either the Seattle center or from another center in the US or Canada.

All are welcome to attend the programs. See the upcoming events here.

Come out into the broad open light of day, come out from the little narrow paths, for how can the infinite soul rest content to live and die in small ruts? Come out into the universe of Light. Everything in the universe is yours, stretch out your arms and embrace it with love. If you ever felt you wanted to do that, you have felt God.

—Swami Vivekananda
