Chandigarh, May 30, 2018
Former diplomat, Rajya Sabha MP and author, Pavan K. Varma’s latest book, ‘Adi Shankaracharya: Hinduism’s Greatest Thinker’ was launched by Shri V.P Singh Badnore, Honourable Governor of Punjab and Administrator of U.T., Chandigarh, at Punjab Raj Bhawan, on Wednesday.
The book ‘Adi Shankaracharya: Hinduism’s Greatest Thinker’ is a well-researched account of the life and times of the child-saint Adi Shankaracharya, who travelled across India to set up of monasteries or mathas, even while giving a form and structure to Hinduism. The book includes a select anthology of Shankaracharya’s seminal writing; and most importantly, examines the startling endorsement that contemporary science is giving to his ideas today. It reminds readers about the remarkable philosophical underpinning of Hinduism, making it one of the most vibrant religions in the world.
