Meditation in Sankara's (Shankaracharya's) Vedanta
Meditation in Sankara's (Shankaracharya's) Vedanta
Description
From the Jacket:

Meditation is now attracting a great deal of attention in both popular and scholarly circles. But there is still much uncertainty about the nature of meditation. This study seeks to clarify some of the misconceptions which cloud our understanding of the subject. The book examines meditation primarily in the context of the Indian tradition of yoga. For meditation is the very heart of yoga practice. The work is written from the vantage point of Sankara's Vedanta. Sankara is well known as one of the foremost interpreters of Hindu tradition. Yet there are many problems involved with studying this thought. The author reviews critically the ways in which Sankara has been approached.

The publication in 1952 of a commentary on the Yogasutra, attributed to Sankara, has prompted re-evaluation of Sankara's thought. In an influential article, a leading Indologist argued that Sankara was first a follower of yoga doctrines, and then turned to Advaita. This thesis is called into question here. The author disputes the assumption that Advaita is opposed to Yoga and meditation. The book clearly defines the role of meditation in Sankara's Vedanta. Sankara's attitude to yoga is also closely analysed.

About the Author:

The author has taught in the Indian Studies Department at Melbourne University. He is presently at the Australian National University (in the Faculty of Asian Studies), where he teaches part-time, and is working on a study of the traditional accounts of Sankara's life.

Testimonials
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 !
