Author : Adi Sankaracarya, commentary by Swami Chinmayananda
Vivekchudamani is the cream of the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.
By developing the quality of discrimination, a power solely accorded to man, one can distinguish between the eternal and the temporal, which in turn opens the gateway to peace and happiness. Vivekachudamani, literally translated as the ‘Crest Jewel of Discrimination’ is a compendium of 580 verses on the ways to know, understand and reach Brahman, the Reality in us.
It re-educates the student, systematically provides a new vision of life. The goal and the path are both exhaustively dealt with, in this elaborate treatment of Vedanta, by Acharya Sankara.
A deep study of Vivekachudamani, ensures no other help is needed for leading a spiritual life and guiding one to self-improvement.
Composed by the Sage, Adi Sankaracharya, Vivekachudamani is in the form of a dialogue between the student and the Teacher, with the latter guiding the student along the spiritual path.
Swami Chinmayananda’s commentary is the perfect companion for advanced students walking the spiritual path in understanding its timeless wisdom.
