Description

About the Book:

Sankaracarya: (A.D. 788 - 820) is considered the greatest exponent of Vedanta in Indian philosophy. A corpus consisting of commentaries on the Vedanta Sutras, the Gita and twelve Upanishads about thirty independent tracts, nearly 250 hymns, a Tantric work and a commentary on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras bears the name of Sankara as the author. Sankara's Manisha Panchakam is the very essence of Hindu Philosophy, which preaches Advaita as the Supreme Reality. Starting his religious mission and journey from Kasi, Sankara never looked back. His was a dharma-yatra. His visit to Kanchipuram was an important stage in his tours of religious victory. Sankara, with great vision, brought cultural renaissance in India. He visualized the country as a nation of integrity in all respects. After accomplishing all this in a short span of thirty-two years, Sankara passed away in the Himalayas.

In the present monograph on 'Sankaracarya, the author has given outlines of his biography, mission and philosophy in brief. Selected passages from his works with English translation added at the end increases the value of this title.
