Description

The Pancadasi of Sri Vidyaranya Swamin is a post-Sankara Advaita Vedanta classic of great celebrity. Want of an English translation of this gem of the Vedantic literature was keenly felt and hence this publication.

In the present volume, the original text is given in Devanagari script followed by an English rendering which aims to be faithful to the spirit of the original rather than to the letter. Brief explanatory notes have been added wherever the terms and passages seemed obscure. An Index to slokas and a Glossary are appended at the end.

The Pancadasi of Sri Vidyaranya is a comprehensive manual of Advaita Vedanta, enjoying great popularity with those who want to have a clear presentation of the truths of Advaita. There are tow types of Advaita-Works: 1. those that are intended to serve as books of instruction for the flower, and 2. those that seek to show through dialectics that the philosophical positions that oppose Advaita are not tenable. The Pancadasi belongs to the first type.
