This is not a religious site, because Advaitam is not about religion.  Advaitam emphasises the basic nature of any human being, regardless of caste, creed or gender.  Advaitam transforms a person to a new self-confident person. The aim of this site is to focus on the facts and truths hidden in the precious scriptures, and also help others to realise the same.

We must salute and thank the ancient Rishis, who lived in caves and found such marvelous truths, by meditation and passed on their knowledge to us, through scriptures. Else we will always remain ignorant.
