A compilation of English translations of the discourses delivered in Tamil by His Holiness the Sankaracharya of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetha and from material gathered during privileged interviews with His Holiness.
An itinerant ascetic that he was, traversing the country on foot, His Holiness held large audiences in thrall by the discourses that he delivered in Tamil in such sweet simple words which are the despair of the pedant and the delight of the innocent. His exposition of Hindu religion, some of which are reproduced in this compilation, have a classical fidelity which one misses in modern 'liberal' treatments.
The reader will be amply rewarded by a careful study of its contents which show the raison d'etre of many doctrines and tenets of Hindu religion not generally understood in their proper import.
