This book is a reliable compendium covering the whole gamut of philosophical problems and metaphysical issues concerning the system of Sri Shankaracharya’s Advaita Vedanta. Besides referring to the philosophical conceptions and arguments as available in Shankara’s works, it also attempts the exposition of the arguments and ideas of the eminent post-shankarite philosophers.

This work is a thorough exposition, based on original Sanskrit sources, of the fundamentals of Advaita Vedanta as a whole, distributing the book in chapters related to different philosophical topics. The author also refers to some of the modern criticism against Advaita Vedanta by the protagonists of Dvaita Vedanta and Buddhism.
