Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya Jayanti ki hardik shubhkamnae🙏
The teachings and life events of Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya have unimaginable vastness and divinity.
He stayed in samsara for merely 32 years before taking Samadhi but accomplished so much that millions couldn’t accomplish in their million lifetimes.
He created more than 300 pieces of astonishing literature including commentaries on Brahma Sutra, 10 Upanishads, Bhagwad Geeta etc.
His poetic works – Stotram, Ashtakam etc when understood leave no doubt in the mind why he is called the Avatar of Dakshinamurthi Shiva (Gyan Avatar of Shiva)
On this auspicious day, make sure to be blessed by his grace by reading/listening/singing his great compositions which from my personal experience have a hidden Divya shakti to take a person in the depth of Gyan and Bhakti Yoga without even the person knowing how he reached there.

Jagadguru was a completely devoted Bhakt of Ma Adi Shakti and his devotion reaches us through Stotrams like Bhavani Ashtakam –

Mahishasur Mardini Stotra –
(Chant and narrated meaning in English)
*this is an invocatory stotra of Ma, hence is one of the most powerful compositions*
He had sakshatkar (darshan) of Mahadev Shiva and Ma Pravati which he composed as Ardha Nareeshwar stotra, describing their grace, beauty and divinity –
His philosophy of Advaita Vedanta can be well understood by the Mahavakyas of Upanishads –
PS – If you are a fan of poetry listen to saundarya lehri with it meanings. It is by far the greatest poetic composition in the world.
