Quintessence of Vedanta of Sri Sankaracharya

by Swami Agamananda
A translation of Shankara's Sarva Vedanta Siddhanta Sara Sangraha.
  • 382 pages, Indian paperback

In Buddha we had the great, universal heart and infinite patience, making religion practical and bringing it to everyone's door. In Sankaracharya we saw tremendous intellectual power, throwing the scorching light of reason upon everything. We want today the bright sun of intellectuality, joined with the heart of the Buddha, the wonderful infinite heart of love and mercy. This union will give us the highest philosophy. --Swami Vivekananda

This translation by Shankara of Sarva Vedanta Siddhanta Sara Sangraha is a fine example of Shankara's revival of Vedanta as a rationalistic philosophy. The work is a compendium and precise re-statement of all that has been thought of and set down about the Self from a purely philosophical, Vedantic point of view.

An introduction and brief life of Shankara is followed by the Sarva Vedanta Siddhanta Sara Sangraha in English translation with Devanagari Sanskrit verses.
