Vedanta Yoga is based on the most ancient scriptual texts,. Do you practice Vedanta Yoga? If so do you find benefit from it?
I am aware of Vedanta yoga, and I use some of its practices. Vedanta includes spiritual theology and a number of types of yoga. Actual practices today are mostly built on later interpetations of the Vedas. Philosophically, I find Advaitist Vedanta of great value, and the teachings of Ramana Maharshi are the clearest available in English.
All yoga practices have their roots in the Vedanta. In addition to philosophy (with self-inquiry), one can also practice devotion (bhakti); the path of service, like Gandhi (karma yoga); and physical yoga (asanas, or postures) with breathing (pranayama).
The purifications of yogic practice are beneficial to physical health, and also support concentration in prayer and meditation. That works whether the prayer is Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, or any other type. The benefits are based more on physiological facts than on religious beliefs.
Yoga is actually vedanta!. Vedanta requires study of the scriptures- sastras like Bhagavad Gita- a commentary on the source books - Upanishads! Sankaracharya had written commentary- bhashyas on 10 upanishads like Isavasya Upanishad, Kenopanishad etc.,. They are pramanas.
Upanishad or Vedanta talks about the consciousness as the only reality!
Vedanta says " You are already free, and freedom is freedom from the notion that I am bound."
In your awareness the whole exists" you are the whole" declares Vedanta!

What is the role of women in the Hindu religion and in Buddhism? And are there women who are monks?Just curious. I never see many women involved in these religions as well. I know for example, that the Judaic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) are quite oppressive in this sense so I was...
