Review By Lynn D Napper

Sankara's commentaries on the Prasthana Traya

This is a reference book, not a novel. A review doesn't make much sense. Obviously an enormous amount of work and research went into the writing of this book. I trust that the research is valid. I bought the book so I wouldn't have to do the research myself.
