Sri Shankaracharya: Life and Philosophy
By Swami Mukhyananda, 144 Pages, Hardcover.
Sri Shankaracharya, an exponent of Advaita Vedanta, is one of the greatest philosophers of India. He was a brilliant thinker and vigorous debater, who reconciled the conflicting sects prevalent in his time, and refuted the harmful, negative systems of thought, thus reviving the Sanatana Dharma and rescuing the foundering Vedic culture; and he placed the Vedanta philosophy on unshakable scriptural and rational foundations. A careful study of his life and philosophy will reveal Shankara's immense contribution to world thought, and dispel the myths and wrong ideas still held about him.
