Positive Philosophy of Swami Brahmananda Saraswati

Since ancient times India is a place of tradition of saints, rishis, gurus and religious traditions. There are several religious sects, philosophies, traditions etc. which emphasis on different types of ideologies which developed here time to time. Six orthodox systems, three heterodox systems and several traditions of Vedanta tradition played an important role in imparting religious, philosophical teachings in this region. Various devotional poets, religious mendicants, renowned men and women of spirituality, and local holy men and women wear no religious tags, and their teachings and lives continue to be an example to the common realm of humanity.  Beside this several social revolutionary or social thinkers spread their ideas for social, religious, educational changes in the society. Within them Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Jyotiba Phule, Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Dayanand, Swami Vivekananda, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, S. Radhakrishnan, Raman Maharishi etc. Swami Brahmananda Saraswati is one from the religious-Vedanta tradition who contributed through his religious teachings and social activities. Here we will study his basic ideas which are important for our society and nation.
