Adi Shankara - Amar Chitra Katha

Adi Shankara - Amar Chitra Katha

$6.00 USD

Shankara's life may be compared to a brilliant flash of lightning that eradicated many areas of darkness in the life of man. He had an intellect that probed fearlessly, a mind that questioned constantly and a heart that felt deeply. Out of these God-given gifts, and thirty-two years of tireless seeking, arose a great system of philosophy, Advaita, and an inspiring body of devotional literature.


Shankara travelled throughout India, preaching that the Self or Brahman is one - undivided and imperishable. The rest is Maya or illusion. We are told of his historic debate with the sage, Madana Mishra, when the latter withdrew defeated. An even greater story tells us how Shankara, the learned Brahman, bowed to the superior wisdom of a lowly outcaste, accepting him as a Guru.


He established several maths to spread his philosophy. Then, as now, the disruptive forces of religion, race, caste and language threatened to weaken the fabric of the one nation that is India. Now, as then, the teachings of a man like Shankara, who believed in the One Undivided Self, reinforces a sense of unity among Indians.
