Saundarya Lahari, although traditionally viewed as a text on Srividya Upasana, was always plagued with contradictions amongst commentators as to the true meaning of the verses and consequently a few of them question the very authorship of the work by Śankara.
With an inspirational insight to view the verses in the right order (from 100 to 1), the author managed to unearth the treasure of true essence of the work, rather than just a hymn in praise of the Mother.

Finally, one can see a refreshing commentary based on pure Advaita Vedanta and supported by quotes from Upanishads on a text authored by Sri Adi Śankara. A rational explanation for the unconventional layout of the text as well as the intent of the work as blueprint for meditation is detailed in this book.

About the Author

Deeply influenced by the teachings of Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda and several Swamijis associated with the Chinmaya Mission, Gouri Shankar Gumma has spent more than 26 years studying various Hindu scriptures and other philosophical texts.
An engineer by qualification, he has been working for an MNC and had the opportunity to travel and work in different countries. Wide travel and interaction with like-minded people expanded the perception and ability to keep an open mind to gain the right Vedantic knowledge, without being affected by the dogma.

The author has been awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Brahma Vidya for the original thesis written on Adi Sankara’s Saundarya Lahari.
