Adi Shankaracharya Jayanti

Adi Shankaracharya, also known as Sankara Bhagavatpadacarya, was born in the 8th century AD at Kaladi in Kerala. Adi Shankara is the greatest Hindu saint and Indian philosopher who consolidated the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta. Adi Shankara’s teachings were mainly based on Advaita (Nondualism) – or the unity of Brahman and the soul. Adi Sankaracharya is also regarded as an incarnation of Lord Shiva, who took the avatar to teach and guide the Hindu religion. Adi Shankara learned all of the scriptures and traveled through out India to help Hinduism regain strength and restore the study of the Vedas and other ancient scriptures.

Adi Shankaracharya Jayanti is regarded as Philosopher’s Day and teachings of Adi Sankaracharya’s principles will be conducted at Adi Shankaracharya mathas. Adi Sankara Jayanthi is a great occasion for Hindu devotees to chant Adi Shankaracharya Stotras, meditate, and study Adi Sankara’s great works and realize the principles of Advaita Vedanta.


  1. HINDU RELIGION EXIST ONLY BY THE EFFORT OF THE GREAT SANKARA "Religion is realisation. It is not mere learning, or dialectic." This is the divine message which stands deeply imprinted in the mind of every Hindu. This is not mere fancy. This is not a mental conception. This is not a stretch of imagination. It is not a coinage of the brain. Nor is it a decision arrived at by vehement vituperation and incongruent argumentation promulgated by all ordinary intellectual prodigy.

    It is the bold assertion of the greatest philosopher of India, the Avatara of Lord Siva.

    What can we take him for except Lord Siva Himself, who proclaims authoritatively and undauntedly:

    Jaatam mayyeva sarvam punarapi mayi tatsamsthitam chaiva visvam,
    Sarvam mayyeva yaati pravilayamiti tadbrahma chaivaahamasmi.

  2. We should thank Sankara Bhagavath pada to keep this sanathana dharma viberent only because of His Great effort to save our culture from the savage attacks of pashanda religion in India.Now the threat exists in a different way,others want to increase there number through conversion,for that many personals in the goverenment use there,brain,money and power to gain it. I firmly believe, India is still bear the foreign connections in so many ways and manner.Unless and until Hindus understand there culture and teachings basically ,will do some thing to the world.
