Description
From the Jacket :

Advaita Vedanta is one of the most important and widely studied schools of thought in Hindu philosophy and the Vivekacudamani is one of the most important texts in the Advaita tradition and the most popular philosophical work ascribed to the great Indian philosopher, Sankara. Sankara (c. 650 - 700) is considered to be a giant among giants and probably the most venerated philosopher in India's long history.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
