Kaushik Chevendra - PraNAms and congratulations for being interesting in trying to understand Vedanta. The first suggestion is to study Vedanta under a sampradaya teacher if you can find close by. If you are in touch with Shree Subbuji, he himself can guide you. There are posts the text like Tatva bodha and Vivekachudamani - Go back to these series and start studying them. Questions will arise just jot them down but continue with your study. Most of the time these questions get resolved slowly. Have a faith in the Lord Shiva that you like. I am sure He will guide you slowly.
Instead of posting your questions on the list, you can ask the questions in a private mail to one of the learned members. They will respond to you until it is clear to you.
With Best Wishes

And I got to know about the different schools of thought.
Then as advaita alone considers shiva as supeme I started reading upon it.
I realized the purpose of life should be only attaining knowledge. When I
started reading more and more I saw the objections of other schools on
I started reading shri subbu sirs blog daily and also contacted him
regarding few things. He suggested I join this group. I had already been
reading from the archives and saw the knowledge in the group. And I joined
it. But when I ask a few questions I didn't get proper responses sometimes.
Even though I say in every post that I am a beginner and I will correct my
answers with the elders knowledge I got condescending answers.
Where can I ask my questions? No one in my family is versed in vedanta.
None of my friends even know about vedanta. This was my only hope of asking
the questions and gaining knowledge. Is it wrong? I ask beginniner
questions because I am one. The reason I asked my latest question was
because I was disturbed by the concept of eternal hell for believers for
I have decided I won't ask any more questions or post any answers.
I will just read the knowledgable answers from the elders.
