Sub title: Selections from Sankara's Writing
Author: Sudhakrishna Rangaswami
This erudite and wide-ranging anthology offers a panoramic view of Vedanta in Sankara’s own words, with selections from standard translations of his commentaries on the Upaniṣads, the Brahma-sutra (Vedanta-sutra) and the Bhagavad-gita—texts which together form the scriptural canon of Vedanta—and an independent treatise, the Upadesa Sahasri, on whose authenticity there is unanimity.
Exhibiting a deep empathy with the living tradition, Sudhakshina has selected passages that explain all the important concepts and teachings, including up-to-date deliberations on Śankara. Her general and sectional introductions illuminate and demystify the esoteric concepts, providing a holistic perspective of Vedanta and making it eminently accessible to the modern reader.
