A Commentary on Badarayana Brahmasutra Named Brahmatat'tvaprakasika (In 2 Volumes)

S. Kothandaraman (Translator)
“…West knew very little about the spiritual attainments of the Hindu society, its culture and its well-knit philosophy centuries and centuries before the advent of western civilization. It was during the last three centuries that the cultural heritage of the Hindu society trickled to the western countries in a big way. The pilgrim ambassador of India to the Chicago world religious Congress, Swami Vivekananda’s famous lecture about a couple of centuries ago was the beginning of the West takeing keen interest in Advaita.

The act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive. The clearer you understand that on the level of mind, you can be described in negative terms only, the quiker will you come to the end of search and realize that you are the limitless being….”
