Advaita Makaranda
Advaita Makaranda
Description
Preface

Sri Laksmidhara Kavi in this short treatise of just 28 verses has brought out the nectar of Upanishad mantras. The author through reason and logic establishes the non-dual Brahman, and tries to remove the doubts that arise in our minds regarding the Reality. There is hardly any other commentary on this important work which deserves serious study by all sincere Sadhakas.

In the beginning of his commentary, swami Tejomayanandaji has composed 11 beautiful verses expressing his Gratitude to Paramapujya Gurudev Swami Chinayanandaji. We have added transliteration and word meanings to these verses in the present edition.

Discritical marks have been used for transliteration of Samskrta words in the commentary. Non-English words have been italicized. This will help readers to identify and pronounce the words correctly.

A key to the transliteration and pronunciation has been added in the beginning of the book.

About the Author

Advaita Makaranda, one of the most beautiful texts on Vedanta sastra, is a work of Sri Laksmidhara Kavi. Somehow, people have not come to know of this text; hence it is not as popular as it should be. It deserves our serious study. It is a fact that we know precious little about Sri Laksmidhara Kavi. What we know is that he lived in the late Seventeenth century and was born in Jagannath Puri Ksetra in Orissa. He was a poet in the court of king Baj Bahadur of Kurumachal Pradesh.

Besides Advaita Makaranda, he authored two other texts: Amrta Tarangini which is his short notes on Srimad Bhagavata and Bhagavannama Kaumudi, in which he has revealed the greatness and sanctity of Lord's name and how nama can lead us to liberation. He himself has mentioned at the end of Bhagavannama Kaundi that the same person Sri Laksmidhara Kavi wrote Amrta Tarangini, Bhagavannama Kaumudi and Advaita Makaranda.

On Advaita Makaranda, we find a short commentary written by a great Vedantin- Svayamprakasa Yati. We do not have much information about him but is believed that he belonged to Tiruchi in Tamilnadu. From all his three works, we learn that the teacher of Sri Laksmidhara Kavi was Anantananda Swami, since he prostrates, in devoted salutations, to Anantananda.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
