Understand authentic Hinduism directly from one of the most revered Hindu spiritual leaders of the twentieth century. This book consists of selections from the more than 2,000 discourses of Kanchi Sankaracharya. It covers the topics of prayer and virtue, Hindu metaphysical truth and the conflict between traditional Hindu dharma and modernity. A sage in the Shankara tradition, he was one of the most beloved and honoured spiritual figures of the twentieth century in India and much of Asia and Europe. But, despite high praise from the likes of H.R.H. Constantine, King of Greece and Indira Gandhi, former prime minister of India, he is not as well known in the West. This book, therefore, has the distinction of introducing both the sage and his spiritual legacy to the Western world in the form of an irreplaceable introduction to Hinduism in today's world. This book consists of selections from the more than 2,000 discourses of Kanchi Sankaracharya. It covers the topics of prayer and virtue, Hindu metaphysical truth and the conflict between traditional Hindu dharma and modernity.
