Advaita Sharada Project Second Release
Jagadguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahasannidhanam released the second version of the Advaita Sharada Project of the Sringeri Math on February 2, 2017 as part of the ongoing Sharadalaya Swarna Shikhara Kumbhabhisheka Celebrations.
The project being undertaken by the Sri Shankara Advaita Research Centre of the Math in association with M/s Sriranga Digital Software Technologies, Mysore, was originally made live on the internet during the Shankara Jayanti 2014 Celebrations and contained the Prasthana-traya Bhashyam-s of Sri Adi Shankara Bhagavatpada as searchable and hyperlinked text.
Being executed under the guidance and direction of Sri Mahasannidhanam and Sri Sannidhanam, the Advaita Sharada Project has now introduced for the first-ever time an elegant interface for featuring sub-commentaries or Vyakhyana-s.
The revamped second release features Vyakhyana-s (Ratnaprabha and Sri Padmapadacharya’s Panchapadika) to the Brahma Sutra Bhashyam and to the Gita Bhashyam. Sri Sureshwaracharya’s Vartikas on the Taittireeya Upanishad Bhashyam are also part of this release.
Other texts include the 14th century work pertaining to the Brahma Sutras namely “Vaiyasika Nyaya Mala” of the 11th Acharya of the Peetham (Jagadguru Sri Bharati Tirtha I), Sri Totakacharya’s Shruti-Saara-Samuddharanam and Sri Hastamalakacharya’s Hastamalakeeyam (along with the commentary by Sri Adi Shankaracharya).
A sub-commentary on Panchapadika titled Vaktavya Kashika, written by Sri Uttamajna Yati, a Sannyasi disciple of Jagadguru Sri Jnanottamacharya, the 5th Acharya of the Peetham has also been included.
Prakaranas of Bhagavatpada such as Vivekachoodamani, Sarva-Vedanta-Siddhanta-Saara-Sangraha and Shatashloki are also featured. More texts, sub-commentaries and features will be added in the subsequent months.
The contents may be accessed at the Project’s website that has been blessed with the Srimukham of Sri Mahasannidhanam.
