Why suffering?

About the Presentation

Why is there so much suffering in the world? Is there a way of out of suffering? How to reconcile the inequalities between one person and the other? Vedanta attempts to answer these and related questions by positing the overarching theory of the Eternal Self, undiminished by the changing phenomenon.

About the Presenter

Swami Atmeshananda is a monk of the Ramakrishna Order, started by Swami Vivekananda in 1897. He is presently in charge of the Vedānta Centre in Springfield Lakes, Qld.
