Description
About the Book

This is a logical presentation of the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta. The language used is simple and lucid and the explanations with th``127e help of common day to day illustrations make the book very interesting and informative even to a casual reader. The author has successfully used even mathematical equations to prove the central theme of Adviata Vedanta that the "Jeevatma"(the Seeker) and the "Paramatma" (the Sought) are one and the same all the time and that truth is only required to be known and understood. This is a valuable book for one and all.

Preface to Third Edition

This new edition of one of the most famous books of the author, 'The Great Equation', is being brought by Sri Jnanananda Bharathi Grantha Prakasana Samithi, will be welcomed by one and all, who would like to know in clear terms what exactly the philosophy of advaitais.

The learned author, Sri Jnanananda Bharathi Swamigal was well known in his poorvashrama as Sri R. Krishnaswami Aiyar, Advocate, Tirunelveli (Tamilnadu).

Having been born as the eldest son of the great Sri G. Ramachandra Aiyar, Advocate, Tiunelveli(who was known later as Sri Ramananada Saraswathi Swamigal after he took sannyasa), Sri R.Krishnaswami Aiyar nurtured his inborn desire to study Indian Philosophy and mastered it at a very young age. He had a flair for explaining it to others through lectures and in writing in a very lucid manner, in Tamil, Sanskrit and English. He led a very simple sastraic life throughout and spent his last years as a paramahamsa sannyasi in the village of Mannadimangalam near Madurai till he passed away in the year 1975.

His translation in Tamil of the Sankara Bhashyam on Brahmasutras, and commentaries on some of the prakasana granthas of Sri Sankara Bhagavatpada are voluminous and all of them have come out in print.

Among the books written by him in English are, An Introduction to Vedanta, Outlines of Vedanta, Thoughts from the Gita, The Great Equation, Dialogues with the Guru and The Call of the Jagadguru. All of them have gone through many editions because of the richness of their contents, the simple and lucid style of writing and above all the authenticity.

This edition has been blessed by His Holiness Sri Bharathi Theertha Mahaswamigal,Peetadhipathi of Dakshinamnaya Sri Sharada Peetam of Sringeri.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
