Vedanta, as an epistemological methodology, does not fit into any of our usual Western theoretical categories because it is not theoretical. It is also not just an Indian philosophy. Vedanta is rather a vision that transforms our lives because it transforms our way of seeing everything. Vedanta is a means of knowledge, a method of inquiry in which the subject matter is oneself. The cognitive transformation it offers frees us from human suffering.
