Sri Sharadamba
Sri Sharadamba – The divinity of Knowledge

Welcome to the website of Jagadguru Shankaracharya Mahasamsthanam, Dakshinamnaya Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri. The Peetham is the first and foremost of the four Peethams established by the renowned 8th century philosopher saint Sri Adi Shankara, the principal exponent of Advaita (non-dualism). The Divinity of Knowledge, Goddess Sharada, installed at Sringeri by Sri Adi Shankara, graces the Peetham as the presiding deity. Jagadguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamigal, the 36th in the illustrious and unbroken lineage of Acharyas presently adorns the throne of transcendental wisdom – the Vyakhyana Simhasana, the title associated with the Pontifical Seat of the Peetham. The Jagadguru upholds the activities of the Peetham towards the propagation and sustenance of Sanatana Dharma while pervading the lives of many thousands of disciples as their spiritual guide.

Edifying Parables E-Book – Free Download

Free download of the book “Edifying Parables” on the occasion of the Centenary Year of His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Abhinava Vidyatirtha Mahaswamiji

How can we be at peace even in stressful situations? Why are we unhappy even when we have wealth and comforts? Are all the events of our life predestined? Is it possible to overcome destiny and if so, how? If God is just, why do innocents suffer and the wicked prosper? Was Lord Rama justified in killing Vali? How is one to firmly adhere to Dharma and also be pragmatic and efficient? How may we effectively control our anger and how should we deal with those ill-disposed towards us? How does an enlightened Guru spiritually uplift his disciple? How may one avoid being misled by pseudo-gurus? What is the benefit of Karma-yoga and how is it to be practised? How are we to discern the Self in ourselves? How do we comprehend the Vedantic position that the world is illusory?

Answers to these and many other such questions, as also topics such as the subtleties of Dharma, Meditation, Samadhi and the inspiring lives of great ones have been interestingly presented in about hundred parables by His Holiness Jagadguru Shankaracharya Sri Abhinava Vidyatirtha Mahaswamiji of the Sringeri Sharada Peetham. These stories have been culled from His public discourses and personal conversations and included in this book “Edifying Parables”. Sri Vidyatheertha Foundation offers this e-book free of cost to all, in commemoration of the centenary of the great Acharya’s birth.
