Tantra is primarily a technique-based interpretation of spiritual practice, as compared to the philosophical nature of Veda/Vedanta. Still, like the Vedanta, tantra has no single coherent doctrine; rather, it developed within the context of the various religions that adopted its methodology (Wallis 2012, p. 26, 27).

Adi Shankara, the famous Advaita (non-dualist) Vedantin of Medieval India, summarizes the gist of Vedantic philosophies as follows: Brahman is absolute reality, unborn and unchanging. Brahman is the selfexistent, the absolute, and the imperishable. Brahman is indescribable. It is at best Infinite Truth, Infinite Consciousness, and Infinite Bliss (Satchidananda). Brahman is free from any kind of differences or differentiation because being non-dual there is no second Brahman. Brahman is often described as “not this, not this” (Sanskrit: neti neti) since Brahman cannot be correctly described as this or that.
