The Method of Early Advaita Vedanta A Study of Gaudapada, Sankara (Shankaracharya), Suresvara and Padmapada
The Method of Early Advaita Vedanta A Study of Gaudapada, Sankara (Shankaracharya), Suresvara and Padmapada
Description

From the Jacket

This is unique work discussing the teachings of four of the great Advaita Acaryas: Gaudapada, Sankara and his two disciples, Suresvara and Padmapada. The firs three chapters are concerned with the teaching of Gaudapada. These chapters refer to most of the verses of the Gaudapadakarika and one chapter specifically deals with the influence of Mahayana Buddhism on the though of Gaudapada. The following three chapters discuss  the teachings of Sankara. Two topics in particular are given extensive treatment: Sankara's understanding of the nature of God (Isvara), and the way Sankara views the role of the sruti in leading to liberation. The writings of recent scholars, such as Paul Hacker, are examined in the context of various topics. The final two chapters are devoted to an explication of the teachings of Sankara's two best known disciples, Suresvara and Padmapada.

The author combines close textual scholarship with the perspective of one is a teacher (Acarya) within the tradition of Advaita. This work will prove useful both for the student who wishes to obtain clear and detailed information about these four Acaryas, and it will also be of value to one who is seeking to develop their own spirituality within the Advaita tradition.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
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!
