This book is translated for the first time into English by Samvid and it is published on the birthday of Sri Sankaracarya. The Acharya's commentaries are better known than his original writings and this title is one of the lesser known works.Prabodhasudhakara, like other works of Sri Sankaracharya, is complete in itself. It is a poem in nineteen sections consisting of two hundred and fifty-seven verses, taking the human being as he is through a spiral of eighteen steps, to the doors of the Divine Grace.Apart from the literary grace which marks all the works of the Acharya, Prabodhasudhakara is a compendium of Sadhana synthesizing Jnana, Yoga and Bhakti in its sweep.
