According to Shankara, it is the ignorance of our real nature that causes suffering and pain. The desire for happiness is essentially a longing to awaken to who and what we truly are. Through the path of self-knowledge, Shankara clearly teaches how to awaken from an ignorance created by the mind, and abide in the peace of our true nature.

One of the Classic Books to Read
I especially like this book since it is written in good English without the trappings of a traditional Sanskrit translation. This is a book best read slowly and thoughtfully.
