Religion and Human Nature

Keith Ward

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the view of Advaita or non-dualistic Vedanta on human nature. Advaita Vedanta proposes a ‘one self’ view of human nature. Swami Vivekananda, one of its greatest teachers, has once proclaimed to accept all religions as true and compared different religions to different streams all leading to one sea. That sea being Advaita, non-dualism, and all-inclusive unity that embraces all religious diversity yet at the same time reduces it all to the level of appearance.

Keywords:   Advaita Vedanta, human nature, one self, Swami Vivekananda, non-dualism, religion
