Introduction to Sankara's Advaitism
Introduction to Sankara's Advaitism
Description
From the Jacket

This book aims to give an exposition of basic tenets of Advaitism as propounded by Sankara in a succinct yet comprehensive manner. It is often claimed that Sankara looked upon the world as a Maya or illusion and rejected Karmayoga. It has been clearly brought out how these widespread beliefs are unfounded. Separate chapters have been earmarked to exposition to Sankara's major works like Vivekchoodamani and his seminal commentaries on the Gita, the Upanishads and the Brahma Sutras.

This book highlights the tremendous contribution made by Sankara to the evolution of Hindu metaphysics. It is hoped that through this publication even a lay reader will be able to appreciate why Advaitism has been aptly described as the acme of the Indian philosophy.
