“Classic Advaita and Radical Advaita
are two different interpretations
of the principles of Non-Duality.
Classic Advaita emphasizes the idea that
individuals are one with the universe
and the universe is within them,
but acknowledges that individuals
may not feel enlightened
and may be seeking guidance.
It offers practical guidance
and has teachers who
provide instruction to students.
On the other hand,
Radical Advaita maintains that
individuals are already enlightened
and there is no need to seek anything,
as there is no ‘little me’ that is separate
from the present moment.
Instead of teachers,
it has speakers who offer a descriptive message
and may come across as confrontational.
Some people resonate with Radical Advaita’s message,
while others do not.”
