namaste to you all!
For some months I have been reading the postings on the advaita list, and
I´m very impressed by all the learned articles and comments available
here! Some of the list-contributors are familiar to me now - after all, I
have been taking part of your views and arguments almost everyday since
early springtime this year - so I almost feel like I know you in person!
My name is Stig Lundgren. I´m 34 years old and I live in Stockholm,
Sweden. I´m a scholar and teacher at the department of the History of
Ideas, Stockholm university. My main topic as a scholar is 19th century
idealistic philosophy, and I´m working on a book on the swedish thinker
Carl Yngve Sahlin (1824-1917).
However, it is advaita vedanta that occupies my mind most of the time!
My main interest is the "early" vedanta of Gaudapada, Sankara and
Suresvara. Among more contemporary vedantins I am particularly interested
in the brilliant writings of Swami Satchidanandendra Saraswati
(1880-1975), who also is the founder of Adhyatma Prakasa Karyalaya in
I think the Advaita Vedanta Home Page maintained by Vidyasankar
Sundaresan is great. Since there are quite a few more or less
"neo-vedantic" sites on the internet, this traditional vedanta site really
is important for information on the teachings of Sankara and the dasanami
tradition. Jaya Jaya Sankara!!
Very best wishes
