Ramana Maharshi and Shankra are two of the greatest and most important sages in the tradition of Advaita. This book contains some of the major works of Shankara actually translated by Ramana Maharshi. It includes Shankra's famous The Crest Jewel of Discrimination (Vivekacudamani) and Maharshi's Seminal Forty Verses on Reality.

The Shankara consolidated the teaching of the Upanishadic and Brahmana Sutras into a practical philosophy of living leading to the non-dual state of Self-realization. In the Twentieth Century, Ramana Maharshi revived this great teaching and by his exemplary life brought about a world-wide Renaissance of Advaita. In this book, where Ramana translates Shankara, we have a blending of wisdom of these two self-realized sages.
