Life and Teachings of Adi Sankaracarya (Hardcover)
Sold By: DK Printworld
Short DescriptionsDr. George Victor studies comprehensively Sankaracarya’s teachings on Vedanta — his views on scripture, perception and inference as pramanas or standards of knowledges; his explanations of the relation between Brahman and atman, Brahman and äsvara, maya and the world; and his concepts of jnana marga, karma marga and moksa.
Vedanta is recognised as the leading philosophy of the Vedic tradition. A major proponent of Vedanta was Shankaracarya who laid the basis for the propagation of Vedanta before the beginning of the Middle Ages. His contribution has been so immense and significant that often Vedanta has been interpreted as synonymous with Advaita Vedanta of Shankara.
