Description
About the Book

This is a logical presentation of the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta. The language used is simple and lucid and the explanations with th``127e help of common day to day illustrations make the book very interesting and informative even to a casual reader. The author has successfully used even mathematical equations to prove the central theme of Adviata Vedanta that the "Jeevatma"(the Seeker) and the "Paramatma" (the Sought) are one and the same all the time and that truth is only required to be known and understood. This is a valuable book for one and all.

Preface to Third Edition

This new edition of one of the most famous books of the author, 'The Great Equation', is being brought by Sri Jnanananda Bharathi Grantha Prakasana Samithi, will be welcomed by one and all, who would like to know in clear terms what exactly the philosophy of advaitais.

The learned author, Sri Jnanananda Bharathi Swamigal was well known in his poorvashrama as Sri R. Krishnaswami Aiyar, Advocate, Tirunelveli (Tamilnadu).

Having been born as the eldest son of the great Sri G. Ramachandra Aiyar, Advocate, Tiunelveli(who was known later as Sri Ramananada Saraswathi Swamigal after he took sannyasa), Sri R.Krishnaswami Aiyar nurtured his inborn desire to study Indian Philosophy and mastered it at a very young age. He had a flair for explaining it to others through lectures and in writing in a very lucid manner, in Tamil, Sanskrit and English. He led a very simple sastraic life throughout and spent his last years as a paramahamsa sannyasi in the village of Mannadimangalam near Madurai till he passed away in the year 1975.

His translation in Tamil of the Sankara Bhashyam on Brahmasutras, and commentaries on some of the prakasana granthas of Sri Sankara Bhagavatpada are voluminous and all of them have come out in print.

Among the books written by him in English are, An Introduction to Vedanta, Outlines of Vedanta, Thoughts from the Gita, The Great Equation, Dialogues with the Guru and The Call of the Jagadguru. All of them have gone through many editions because of the richness of their contents, the simple and lucid style of writing and above all the authenticity.

This edition has been blessed by His Holiness Sri Bharathi Theertha Mahaswamigal,Peetadhipathi of Dakshinamnaya Sri Sharada Peetam of Sringeri.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
