Remembering Adi Shankara.

ಶಂಕರ ಜಯಂತಿಯ ಶುಭಾಶಯಗಳು.
Adi Shankaracharya, 788CE - 820CE, born in Kalady (in present day Kerala), died at the age of 32 in Kedarnath (in present day Uttarakhand). Remembering him on his birthday. A renowned philosopher, founder of Advaita Vedanta, poet, nationalist,travelled length and breadth of the country several times,  great organiser, established four centres of learning in four different directions of the country, an extraordinarily creative writer with over 300 texts to his credit - all in such short span of life. His is one of the finest intellect the country has seen. A pride of India. May we be continued to be inspired by him and his teachings.
