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.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
