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.

Testimonials

Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi
Florence Ambika, USA
I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
