The Vivekacudamani of Sankaracarya (Shankaracharya) Bhagavatpada (An Introduction and Translation)
The Vivekacudamani of Sankaracarya (Shankaracharya) Bhagavatpada (An Introduction and Translation)
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.

About the Author:

John Grimes has taught at universities in the United States, India, Canada, and Singapore. His publications include: A Concise Dictionary of Indian Philosophy, Problems and Perspectives in Religious Discourse: Advaita Vedanta Implications: Ganapati: Song of the Self: and The Naiskarmyasiddhi of Suresvara. He currently resides and teaches at the Kodaikanal International School, South India.

Fotis, Greece

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
