About the Book:

First time in the history of India, in 1958, a Sankaracarya visited West. The author, His Holiness Jagadguru Sankaracarya Sri Bharati Krsna Tirtha of Puri, went to America at the invitation of the Self Realization Fellowship, Los Angels, to spread the message of Vedanta. This book is a compilation of some of his discourses delivered there.

These discourses by a saint-yogi and master of ancient Indian scriptures, also well-versed in modern sciences, give the essentials of Vedanta. They combine authenticity of thought with simplicity of language. Being couched in the contemporary idiom they will be found to be particularly suited to the modern mind. Though addressed to American audiences, the discourses carry a message of eternal truth and of universal application. The steps of spiritual inquiry and the paths of God-realisation outlined in them will be of immense practical use to the readers in their quest for the Supreme.

About the Author:

His Holiness JAGADGURU SANKARACARYA SRI BHARATI KRSNA Tirtha was the pontifical head of the Govardhana Pitha, Puri, one of the four monasteries founded by the great Sankara in the hoary past. After a brilliant academic career which involved study of Sanskrit, Mathematics, Philosophy, History, English Literature and Science subjects, he studied Vedanta from the renowned Jagadguru Sankaracarya Sri Sivabhinava-Nrsimha-Bharati at Sringeri, and practised vigorous yogasadhana in the nearby forests where he also discovered the hidden meaning of the Ganita-sutras of the Atharva Veda. He adopted sannyasa in 1919.

His Holiness was an orator, a religious preacher, a scholar, a philosopher-yogi and a Saint. He was an authority on Hindu scriptures. He also studied scriptures of other religious with the humility of a devotee, and preached the essential unity of all religions.

In 1953, His Holiness founded the World Reconstruction Association - a secular organisation with the object of reconstructing the society on moral lines. He attained Mahasamadhi in 1960.
