Sri Sankaracharya was one of the brightest minds in the firmament of medieval Hindu philosophy and a mighty force in the restitution of numerous thoughts and beliefs. In fact, he was deeply attracted towards asceticism at an early age. He was a erudite scholar, a very fine orator and could discuss any thing with deep knowledge and confidence. He wrote on the principles of Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and the Brahma Sutra. He opined that there is but one God and he alone is real, all else is Maya (illusion). The theme contains thirteen chapters and the appendix. They include his early life, tours of various regions of India, master and disciple, his philosophy, amidst the Himalayas, divine purpose, Vedanta philosophy, his teachings and last years of his life. This work would be useful for teachers, scholars and students in India and abroad.
