Vedanta for the West compiled by Christopher Isherwood


Vedanta goes on to. assert that, beneath this appearance, this flux, there is an essential, unchanging Reality, which it calls Brahman, the Godhead. Brahman is Existence itself, Consciousness itself. Brahman is also said to be that almost indefinable quality which is called in the Sanskrit language "Ananda," and in the Christian Bible  "the peace of God, which passeth all understanding " "Ananda" may be translated not only as "peace" but also as "bliss"; since this absolute peace, when it is known beneath all flux, appearance and unrest, must give the only permanent kind of happiness”
