"Sankara is the foremost among the master-minds and the giant souls which Mother India has produced. He was the expounder of the Advaita philosophy. Sankara was a giant metaphysician, a practical philosopher, an infallible logician, a dynamic personality and a stupendous moral and spiritual force. His grasping and elucidating powers knew no bounds. He was a fully developed Yogi, Jnani and Bhakta. He was a Karma Yogin of no mean order. He was a powerful magnet."
"There is not one branch of knowledge which Sankara has left unexplored and which has not received the touch, polish and finish of his superhuman intellect. For Sankara and his works, we have a very high reverence. The loftiness, calmness and firmness of his mind, the impartiality with which he deals with various questions, his clearness of expression-all these make us revere the philosopher more and more. His teachings will continue to live as long as the sun shines."
"Sankara's scholarly erudition and his masterly way of exposition of intricate philosophical problems have won the admiration of all the philosophical schools of the world at the present moment. Sankara was an intellectual genius, a profound philosopher, an able propagandist, a matchless preacher, a gifted poet and a great religious reformer. Perhaps, never in the history of any literature, a stupendous writer like him has been found." - Swami Sivananda.<< More>>
If we listen to Vedanta, soon afterwards we get the feeling that
we are brahma-jnanis; we get the feeling that we are well
versed in Vedanta. And it is in developing this feeling that your
ajnana (ignorance) has succeeded in deceiving you. Maya
has attained victory. For this is the worst type of ignorance, and
it means that the more you get the superficial outer knowledge,
apara vidya, book knowledge, the deeper becomes your
pride and the deeper becomes your delusion. You think you are a
jnani, and thus your pride grows, your delusion
increases, which means you have gone deeper into the darkness of

“Yoga is eternal life in the soul or
spirit. It transmutes a man into divinity. It brings a message of
hope to the forlorn, joy to the depressed, strength to the weak and
knowledge to the ignorant. It is the secret master-key to open the
realms of eternal bliss and deep abiding peace"
