In Tattvabodha, Sri Adi Sankaracharya lovingly answers these and many more such questions and introduces the aspiring student to the basic principles of Vedanta – the science of Life. This preliminary text is presented in the form of a dialogue between the Guru and the disciple.
The disciple asks with genuine eagerness and the Guru answers wtih patience, with depth and with precision. Swami Tejomayananda’s commentary on this text is illuminating and answers even unasked doubts of the beginner. His exposition from what it takes to be a seeker to what it takes to make a saint of oneself is masterly.
