This realization is the aim of all the Vedanta teachings. Christ said, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." "The kingdom of God is within you." "Be ye perfect."
Although theologians are apt to explain away these teachings in various ways, the Vedantists believe Christ meant what he said. Listen to this remarkable recording and discover how Vedanta goes to the very heart of Christ's teaching. Vedanta came to the West in the late 19th century, not to supplant any religion, but to bring a more tangible spirituality to those who seek it. Its goal has never been to proselytize, but to help man realize the divinity within him.

If you grew up listening to the Sermon on the Mount, this commentary from the Vedanta perspective will enrich your experience of its teachings. The only thing that bothered me was the formal speaking style of the narrator. I imagine his style has won him awards and that other speakers emulate him. But I would prefer a speaker I can relate to. The British theatre trained speaker puts distance between me and the text. I want to be drawn in and the formal elocution does not do it for me.
