The near and dear do bring some cheer in life, but these relationships do cost as it brings a lot of fears and tears which will in time disappear. However, there is one and only one thing which is the nearest, the most beloved, the very source of happiness, which never leaves us and is completely free! It is the undotted 'I', my very own dearest Self. It is 'my own sweet home', the only one I truly own.
Vedanta introduces this ever sweet Self to me and makes me truly Self-centred, and that is its beauty and fascination. Empowered by Self-knowledge Arjuna became victorious, Buddha became Enlightened and Swami Chinmayananda became loved and revered.
Vedant Madhuryam - My Dearest Sweet Self is one more beautiful composition of Swami Tejomayananda, himself a Master exponent of Vedanta. The verses and the commentary give us a taste of the sweetness of Vedanta and compelling reasons why we should study it. Why wait for the twilight years of life, when you can be happy here and now.
