guru-disciple paramparas1 of India are like malas2 strung with gems;each jewel is precious and invaluable.Still, some shine with an attention-commanding splendor.Sri Adi Sankaracarya was such a diamond.Sri Sankara's accomplishments were many, but he is singledoutbecausehisbrilliant commentaries on the prasthana-trayam—upanishads, the Bhagavad-Gita and the Brahma Sutras—crystallized the Advaita Vedanta Darsanam3 forever, establishing it as the ultimate Indian schools of thought.His various opponents—including the Purva Mimamsakas, who professedthat theVedas'primeteaching was the performance of rituals for the attainment of heaven and otherworldly splendor—were knocked flat, as Sankara laid bare the defects of their philosophies with his one-two punchof scriptural authority and logic.As per tradition, once defeatedby Sankara,they becamehis disciples. 

his commentaries on the prasthana-trayam have been translated into dozens of languages and are today studied throughout the world.The acceptance of Advaita Vedanta as the ultimate truth professed by the Vedas has become so widely accepted that the word Vedanta itself has become a synonym forAdvaita.With each passing year, the vision of Advaita Vedanta gathers more and more acceptance .

Not only did Sankara acknowledge the necessity of such practices for purifying the mind, but he also made outstanding contributions to them, including methods for conducting puja, the division of the Hindu pantheon and its worship into sixmajor categories, and the composition of Sanskrit hymnssuchasSaundaryaLahari, Sivananda Lahari and the Mahishasura-Mardini Stotram.Sankara's sole desire was to lead mankind to the ultimate realization: the supreme reality of the universe, of God and of all beings is one and the same—an eternal blissful consciousness.Yetinhis wisdom,Sankara understood that, for this transformative understanding to dawn, the above-mentioned preparatory steps were needed in order to purify and refine the mind.Thus, the advaitin accepts dvaitic methods while always trying steps, we must have the thought within usthat whatever wesee isall one.The real experience that 'everything is one' may come in its own time.But from the beginning we have to develop the thought that this isthe truth.”

In order to ascend to a sarvajna-pitham—the Seat of the all-knowing—one must submit himself to, and satisfactorily answer, all questions posed by the a body of philosophical pundits, representing all schools of thought and fields of knowledge

What is Avatar?

The Supreme Power periodically assumes form to bring the erring humanity back to the right path.Without impressing all his pervasive spirit, he incarnates by choosing form, place and time.The form and nature it takes will depend on the cause and circumstances leading to the incarnation.Avatars differ in the vehicles or medium through which they manifest themselves according to the supreme need.It is understandable that whenever we see the emergence of a great personality of the eternal principles and values ​​of life and religion and the emergence of a great personality of advocacy or supernatural power, we are right to call it an incarnation.The ultimate goal of incarnation has always been the re-establishment of religion, right values ​​in the world.Accordingly, we accept Shri Adi Shankaracharya as the ‘incarnation’ of Lord Shiva.of our country.We wish to apply the genius of Adi Shankara, even if we cannot even describe the mystical people known as Shankara!

The need for an incarnation of Shri Shankar Bhagavatpada Acharya

When the Vedic reconciliation with the latter was in jeopardy, due to the necessity of rejuvenation and re-creation of his wisdom, Adi Shankara moved forward like a majestic lion across the country and turned other lions into his power and even killed the hardened ones.Choose the path illuminated by the Upanishads, such a powerful leader was needed when Hinduism was almost smoking in the tempting spread of atheistic views and as a result Hindu society became divided and divided into numerous sects and sects making everyone a champion.Engaged in various new issues and mutual quarrels and endless arguments.

It was in such a chaotic intellectual environment that Shri Shankara brought his life to the attention of a non-dual Brahmin of the Upanishads.It is very well understood what any one man must have had to do in those days, when the modern conveniences of mechanical transport and the means of propaganda were unfamiliar.

A peer mystic

Even as a peerless mystic, Adi Shankara could have integrated his purpose only with the lucky ones.He can also be perfectly flexible and stay away from it all.Yet, he chose to illuminate the divine path in a way that suited the ability of the hearer, the undisputed commoner, to present wisdom to the common people as well.He was fully aware and fully aware of the intricacies of the unknown, yet he was humble and discerning, as only true great people could be.

 in his well-equipped arsenal.An excellent thinker, brilliant intellect, a great personality with a vision of truth, thoughtful faith and a heart desiring to serve the nation, sweet emotional and persistent logic, Adi Shankara was the right spiritual general to become a champion because of the Upanishads.It was really a huge program that at the age of 32 he completed in just a short span of 20 effective years, he finished his work and continued his expression.
From masculine prose to female soft songs, from warrior verses to dance lyrics, in the hall of Upanishad critique or in the temple of Brahmasutra performances, in the theater of his Bhagavad Gita discourses or in the open flower fields of his devotional songs and his thoughts.Was dancing on.But Penn alone could not have won the war of culture for our country.He showed himself to be a great organizer, a visionary diplomat, a courageous hero and a relentless servant of the country.

Numerous rituals before the arrival of Shri Shankar encouraged obscure systems that boomed for reform.Shri Shankara completed this task.He gave them a new, pure and purposeful outlook.By working through its own tradition, each system or denomination was helped to discipline the behavior and practice of the mind, in order to be able to progress with a higher stage of truth.Evil was purified in the practice of rituals and with the possibility of leading to its rotary to understand the Upanishad ideal, each denomination was assigned a place that could be described as a ‘union of faith’.Reform of religious beliefs and practices leads to improvement of character and social respect.

His message in a nutshell

The message contained in the elaborate discussion in Shri Shankara’s bhasyas is often conveyed in a verse or in a half-verse to ten verses in a century of verse.He has reconciled with the potentially contradictory findings of the Upanishads and in the unified view that he has presented the eternal, the moral, the whole of consciousness is Brahman, without one another.What is uncertain (and transcendent) by His power and calls it Maya or Mitt, appears as the universe, conditions, time, etc. by space, which are always changing.The jiva is not separate from the whole Brahman, but seems to be separate and subject to limits due to upadhi.Degree boundaries are unrealistic like explanations and unlimited space that looks like room space, pot space, etc ...

Once the conditioning factors are eliminated, life is seen as one with Brahman, as taught in the Upanishads.The liberating knowledge of this unity is Mukti or Moksha.Karma and bhakti help in the attainment of knowledge from afar by giving the necessary mental purity when done with a spirit of devotion to Iswara.

In his commentary on the subject of meditation, Shri Shankara has clearly distinguished the qualification between "trying to increase the peak of yoga" and "doing the same".He says that one who has practiced yoga has to maintain this instrument, that is, until the purification of the mind is sufficient to maintain the instrument readiness, one has to perform all the karmas with devotion as a devotion to God.

He has declared in many places that even the obligatory deeds performed in the Nishkma spirit have virtue as fruit.He said that no karma, devotional service to God can bear fruit, indeed such dedication should give the necessary mental purity as well as make the work fruitful.He uses the word "falsankalpasya chittavikashephetuvatat" - in this Gita commentary, that is, the mental narrowness that clings to the fruit of actions.So any doer who has given up mental attachment to fruits is a yogin, his mind is focused, not distracted.Therefore karma should not be ignored.
Even though Brahman alone is the absolute fact (Parmarthika), the knowledge of the objective universe - mistakenly the highest stand point - is considered to be the kind of truth related to worldly affairs e.g.Retained to keep water in it.

In each of the various schools developed in the past Shankara era, the influence of Shri Shankara’s teachings is in one form or another.Its message boils down to the formula - natural growth, which includes what is consistent and co-exists with what is incompatible.

Some examples of Acharya's immense kindness

Although gifted with miraculous yogic powers, the old masters never had time in their lives to write their autobiographies.Self-sufficiency was the very spirit that governed their lives and activities.And yet Shri Adi Shankara was not opposed to using his yogic powers for the temporary upliftment of the unfortunate, for example, a hymn in praise of Goddess Mahalakshmi, who makes the poor woman permanently rich through the instant creation of the Kanakdhara hymn, which makesthe goddess.To shower his bounty on the house in the form of a golden amalak.Such are the examples of Shankara's innate, boundless compassion in his short but effective life.The lotus flower blossoming under Shri Sanandana's feet, when he crossed the fragrant Ganges at the sound of the master's voice, the other people in the group also walked towards Botman, it is known.The leadership here, indeed demonstrative, yet remarkably silent and effective use of his yogic powers to emphasize the virtues of Shri Sanandana, who definitely deserved the grace of his Guru.

Future plans for the incarnation of Shri Shankar Bhagavatpad Acharya

Another notable aspect of brilliant leadership is the vision and versatility that Acharya Shri Shankara did not express in any sense, was proficient in all the scriptures, Razor was endowed with sharp intellect and was dedicated to conveying his message to all, Shri Shankar's futuristic vision isclear Working methods for giving.Through international travel, direct contact with the people results in the establishment of four living centers of spiritual education to cover the whole country.

Establishing 4 maths in four quarters of our country, opening temples, organizing meeting halls of education, this mighty master left nothing behind in maintaining his achievement.Of the four monasteries in the east and west, two were established by the sea, while in the north and south, mathematics was established in mountainous areas.Shri Sureshwaracharya, a native of the north, was made in-charge of the monastery in the south, while Totak from the south was sent to Badri in the north.He made it mandatory that the Namputis of Kerala should worship at Badri, while the Brahmins of Karnataka were assigned to Nepal.Similarly he appointed Maharashtra Brahmins to worship at Rameshwaram.This shows how broad-minded he was when it came to leadership in matters of national interest.

Men of realization are of two classes.Some continue in a state of self-neglect.They are accused of spirituality at the tips of their fingers and they peacefully spread spirituality to others.

Others prefer to live in the world, but it is not of the world;They love men and the objects of the world, not in the work for themselves, but for the infinity in them.By living in their closeness, by talking to them, one can understand more than what the scriptures provide.

Lord Krishna Teaching Bhagwat Geeta

Lord Krishna Teaching Bhagwat Geeta In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna says that a person can atone for his sins in many ways like penance, charity, etc. But there is no faster, faster way to atone for sins than devotional service to God / Lord Krishna. In relation to the Bhagavata Purana and the Bhagavad Gita, both elaborate on the assurance that devotion to Lord Krishna is the supreme purifier for all the sins that a person commits in the course of life. 'Aapi Chet Su-misconduct Anointing mother Sadhu Samyag Vivasito H S S (Bhagavad Gita: Chapter IX verse 30) Through verse 30 above, God is telling Arjuna that even though the most sinful person worships him with full devotion, he only considers him as a saint because he resolved correctly in his life is. So many times we also think that we have committed many sins in life and how God will accept us, but here God makes it clear that once a person is devoted to them, then that person is not a sinner Go
