    • Abstract:
      Samkara was the greatest teacher and commentator of Advaita Vedanta Hinduism, a religious and philosophical tradition based on a nondualist, monistic reading of the Hindu sacred texts, the Upanishads. This perspective has been the dominant reading of these writings among Brahman teachers and a widely accepted perspective among Hindu philosophers.
