Adi Shankara

When I was traveling in India I first learned of this great spiritual powerhouse. Adi Shankara single-handedly revived Vedanta (Hinduism) in India after Buddhism had taken hold of most of the sub-continent. In his short life of just 32 years he traveled all over India engaging in philosophical debates. He extolled the supremacy of the Upanishads and “non-dualist” thought and was able to recognize and distinguish the importance of the 13 most read Upanishads.Adi Shankara (9th C. Indian Mystic)

    I feel drawn to this blog. I also am interested in the religion of India, and have been for a very long time. Contemporary political and social issues mean little to me, because, if Shankara is correct, they are completely unreal and undeserving of serious attention. I wonder what Wolfananda thinks about that.
    Hoping for an answer, or comments from other visitors to this blog, David

    Adi Sanaka, saved Hinduism from the onslaught of Brahmanism, Buddhism and Jainism.

    On one side, he preached Advaida [One alone ] and still he wrote the most beautiful prayers to God.

    He made Hinduism what it is today. My hats are off to him and his great accomplishments.
