Vedanta has been heavily contaminated by Hinduism, or at least by the prevalent form of Hinduism. In its own right, it is one of the most beautiful things to have happened in my view - after the invention of language and before the advent of industrial revolution.
The only problem - it's not for the masses. When something is not appealing to the majority, it becomes very difficult to keep it alive, especially in its pure form.
Anyway, I'm not a purist, and if something is actually enhanced by having anything added to it, it is not bad either.
But that doesn't happen always.
In the subsequent pages, I'll be trying to present mainly the non-religious, non-emotional, maybe non-attractive form of Advaita Vedanta that many, but not all, of its proponents practiced and preached. I beg your pardon for any mistakes I make and will greatly appreciate your advice and suggestions.
