Shankara was a great towering personality who, within the course of a short life of thirty-two ears, brought about a thorough revolution in the social, religious, spiritual, and philosophical life and thought of India.

He laid the foundation of modern Hinduism on a composite, comprehensive, and all-inclusive universal basis. He had such a brilliant mind, scientific viewpoint, and rational approach that he appeals to the people of today.

He appears just as modern, in many respects, as if he were living today, for he was concerned with eternal universal thoughts. Some of the special problems that he dealt with in those days are here even today, and the solutions that he suggested are applicable even now. That is why he appeals to all modern people as well.

Shankara was a great illumined sage, philosopher, scholar, and poet; he was also a man of action, a great reformer and organizer, and a stabilizer of society by the resuscitation of ethical and spiritual values. Let us pay our humble homage to this luminous personality of vast universal dimensions, who even now serves as a beacon light of great brilliance to both India and the world.
