9780143064459: The Roots of Vedanta:: Selections From Sankara's Writings

This erudite and wide-ranging anthology offers a panoramic view of Ved?nta in Sankara's own words, with selections from standard translations of his commentaries on the Upani?ads, the Brahma-s?tra (Ved?nta-s?tra) and the Bhagavad-g?t? - texts which together form the scriptural canon of Ved?nta - and an independent treatise, the Upade?a S?hasri, on whose authenticity there is unanimity. Exhibiting a deep empathy with the living tradition, Sudhakshina has selected passages that explain all the important concepts and teachings, including up-to-date deliberations on ?a?kara. Her general and sectional introductions illuminate and demystify the esoteric concepts.
