About the Book: 

Sankara bhagavadpada was instrumental in reviving our culture more than 1200 years back. Unfortunately, Sankaracarya has become synonymous with terse, logical and complex philosophy of Advaita; or with Brahmanism a word coined by Western philosophers and a notion that he is relevant only to a particular caste; or with the ascetic way of life that promotes escapism. This book tries to present ¸ acaryasankara as a prodigy discovering his mission; as a person who learnt from many persons and situations, after coming in direct contact with the masses and classes of the society; as a Prophet who had the foresight to select the eligible persons for his mission; as a forerunner who included all persons at every stage of growth in his teachings; as a synthesised of hand, heart and head and most of all, as an inspiration for scaling that peak which lies within each one of us.

Review: 

This is another spiritual gem from the wonderful pen of Shri. T. Raghunandan. I just completed reading this spiritually elevating tribute to the Great Rejuvenator of our Sanatana Dharma when our Bharat was under the tyranny of the mechanical ritualists and the fanatic Buddhists. It was a silent revolution which revived our Hindu culture reconciling the various quarreling sects and awakening the sleeping masses to know their valuable heritage and to lead a noble life of finest human virtues in harmony with all others around and also the mother nature.
Shri Raghunandan has presented the biography of Adi Sankara in a totally unconventional and unorthodox way, may be soaring high in his own meditative intuition. How far the orthodox people will accept this biography is a moot point. However the incidents from the life of the Great Acharya are weaved together into a fine tapestry engaging the attention of the reader throughout its three parts of Volition (Hands), Emotion (Heart) and Intellect and Intuition (Head). Certain incidents are presented in a very logical manner removing the miraculous aspects to make it more human
