Adi Shankara (Paperback Comic Book)
Adi Shankara (Paperback Comic Book)
Description
Back of the Book

Shankara's life may be compared to a brilliant flash of lightning that eradicated many areas of darkness in the life of man. He had an intellect that probed fearlessly, a mind that questioned constantly and a heart that felt deeply. Out of these God-given gifts, and thirty-two years of tireless seeking, arose a great system of philosophy, Advaita, and an inspiring body of devotional literature.

Shankara travelled throughout India, preaching that the Self or Brahman is one - undivided and imperishable. The rest is Maya or illusion. We are told of his historic debate with the sage, Madana Mishra, when the latter withdrew defeated. An even greater story tells us how Shankara, the learned Brahman, bowed to the superior wisdom of a lowly outcaste, accepting him as a Guru.

He established several maths to spread his philosophy. Then, as now, the disruptive forces of religion, race, caste and language threatened to weaken the fabric of the one nation that is India. Now, as then, the teachings of a man like Shankara, who believed in the One Undivided Self, reinforces a sense of unity among Indians.

Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
