Reflections of a Scholar-Practitioner in the Tradition of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda

Concerns Raised by the Phenomenon of the scholar-practitioner

This personal essay will focus on various issues which arise when one is a scholar-practitioner in a spiritual tradition. My specific focus, because it is the tradition in which I practice, will be the Vedānta tradition of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda: sometimes referred to in scholarly literature as ‘Neo-Vedānta,’ but more properly as Vijñāna Vedānta.
