Vivekachudamani literally means ‘crest jewel of wisdom’. It is an important original work of Sri Sankaracharya, one of the greatest sages of Ancient India.

Endowed with lofty and sharp intellect, he wrote many incisive commentaries on great standard works of Hindu philosophy. But they are beyond the reach of those who have not attained a high proficiency in Sanskrit and other collateral philosophical disciplines.

Here in Vivekachudamani he distils the quintessence of what he taught, that is, the non-dual Vedanta or Advaita Vedanta in easy Sanskrit verses whose sublimity of content is matched only by their lyrical beauty. Each verse is presented here with a free-running English translation.
