     Vedanta Society of New York (VSNY) is affiliated with the Ramakrishna Order of India. In fact, VSNY is the Order's first Center started by Swami Vivekananda, in 1894. It was an historic event, for the seed of the world-wide Ramakrishna Movement was sown here in New York over a century ago.

     Swami Vivekananda was the first teacher of Vedanta to come to the West, who drew wide acclaim by his electrifying addresses at the World's Parliament of Religions held in Chicago in 1893. After the conclusion of the Parliament, a group of American students interested to learn more about Vedanta gathered about the Swami, and the first Vedanta Center in the West was started in New York City.

     Vedanta Society of New York bases its teachings on the System of Vedanta , especially as explained by Sri Ramakrishna (1836-1886) and his chief disciple Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) and as demonstrated in their lives.

     The Society is one of the number of Vedanta Centers in the US, and is guided by Swamis (monks) of the Order, who serve as ministers.
