The Essence of Vedanta (i.e. Shedding the Ego)

Monday, September 4th, 2023

A friend sent me this and all I could think about is how well this resonates with Advaita Vedanta in layman’s’ terms.

Caveat: The video advocates for a good time after realizing nothing matters. The “nothing matters” part may be interpreted as nihilistic, but the speaker is also saying that you can find deeper/truer meaning in enjoyment when you realize you are not the focus in people’s lives and your physical life is finite. This is very Vedantic indeed.
