About the Book
‘Adi Shankara- the Jagadguru’ gives a brief account of the life, works and philosophy of Adi Shankara, a remarkable genius and a spiritual giant who lived more than 2000 years ago and whose impact the world feels even today in resurrecting the lost glory of the real Vedic path and Vedic Dharma of ancient India. The intention of the author in writing this book is to give a taste of the great ancient thinking, and also to give a glimpse of the wonderful exponent of Advaita Vedanta to those who have no knowledge about him who was a great bhakta, a real Karma Yogi and a practical philosopher all rolled in one and about whom our country should really feel proud of. It is an effort to induce the readers to go deep into the subject after reading this book that at best gives only an outline of the Advaita Vedanta, which is the most popular philosophy applicable to the modern rational mind. It is hoped that this book will help in elevating the mind of one and all alike and pave the way for a happy and peaceful family, society, nation and the world with alive and let live attitude.
