Description
About the Book

This is the question being explored in the Vedas, Indian writings of antiquity.

Bhagavad Gita summarises these thoughts in eighteen chapters.

Chapter 2 reduces that summary into seventy two verses. Among the many commentators on Gita, Sri Shankara stands out as the foremost proponent of the non-dual view. ‘Swami Chidananda Puri has translated that from Sanskrit to Malayalam and provided an explanation of his own. This is a translation of that.

About the Authors

Swami Chidananda Puri is a renunciate, having been called to the order in 1989, after years of study. He established the Advaitashram at Kolathur, off Calicut, India in 1992. At- tached to the ashram are an orphanage, a school and another house for like minded people who choose to live there. A unit of the Ashram functions in Palakkad. He also runs a similar ashram in Mehmadabad, Gujarat, India, which was entrusted to him by his Guru on his passing away. With no fund-raising plans, the whole thing runs on charity. The website of the dsh- ram is https://advaithashramam.org

Swamiji runs regular classes for the trainees in the ashram and monthly classes in ancient Indian wisdom for the genera! public which are well attended. So are the three annu- al residential programmes each lasting a week. He also runs a busy lecture schedule outside the dshram.

He has authored several books, beginning with short explanations of concepts and leading to commentaries on the works of great Gurus like Shankara. The University of Cali- cut, Kerala, India has made him the Visiting Professor in the Chair for Sanatana Dharma Studies. He has been awarded several titles and prizes by many organizations.

The translator:

Vijay Chandran has a Masters Degree in English Lit- erature and began his career as a lecturer in English in the colleges under the University of Kerala. Later he joined the Indian Administrative Service and served the Central and State governments of India in various capacities, retiring as Principal Secretary to the Government of Kerala. After a few more years of work involving consultancy to international organizations like the World Bank, he lived in U.K and Czech Republic for about 12 years, giving lectures and readings on spirituality and teaching Sanskrit to beginners. Now back in India, he is engaged in translating the works of Swamiji into English.
