Shankaracharya Intellectual Giant Complete Works

Whether  Adi Shankaracharya is the incarnation of Lord Shiva is point, better left alone.

There are some who dispute it.

However what one can not dare to deny, is the fact that He was an intellectual Giant ..

Shankaracharya was engaged in an argument with Buddhists on Reality  and the nature of the world.

The main pivot of Shankaracharya’s  Philosophy rests on His assertion that Permanence is Real and Change is Illusory.

For the Buddhists, Change alone is permanent and there is no Permanence.

Totally diametrically opposite  point of views.

Buddhists argue with Shankaracharya thus.

Take a Candle.

It lights up the area surrounding it.

It releases Energy, and loses Energy every micro second.

So when you look at the candle for the second time ,it is not the same as it was as it has expended energy, has changed its size.

In the case of Man, Man changes.

Man goes through the various Ages-Childhood,Youth, Old Age.

So Man does not remain the same.

Every thing changes and nothing is Permanent.

Shankaracharya replies,


But , if , as you declare, every thing changes and does not remain the same, how is it that you identify the Object as such?

Yes, The candle has changed, Changes, Man changes.

If only Changes are there, how is that we recognize them as such?

Because there is Something by referring to which you recognize Objects despite the Changes.

The permanent Reality is Brahman and the Changes are Illusory.

What an argument?

Look at list of works of Shakaracharya whci he completed  in 32 years of His Life.

    When you are driving a car, please ask your Jeeva who is driving. If you are jnanapurva the answer different than Jnanapaschaat. If you are like a salt outside the ocean or like a salt inside the ocean experience is different. Intellect is like a salt outside the ocean. Intelligence is like a salt that is dissolving in the ocean. Buddha was like a salt that dissolved in the ocean whereas those who wrote and argued hundred years later (including non-Buddhist) were like salt outside the ocean. What takes one towards the ocean of Jnana is a state of belonging to the ocean called by various names ( Jnana, awareness, Chetana (reflected awareness or ishwara), Bramha (atma-prakasha) etc…and many more names). Jeeva too is reflected atmaprakash. Think of 10 lightbulbs in the same room. Think which one has different source of electricity. Now, please go back to the car driving. Who is doing the change of time and space with the change of scenes in the 3-D scenery (Drishya Jagat)? What we call movement …. Is it real or an illusion of life.


  2. Anantha Krishna

    I am spell bound on his achievement, that at short period. He is the real guide & Jagad Guru, incarnation of Lord Shiva, saviour of Hinduism.
