A world of mystery surrounds the circumstances of Adi Shankara’s life. With scanty records of birth and whereabouts and death, He is worshipped by Advaita Vedantists to this day. The great teacher is said to have traversed the length and breadth of India as early as the 8th century and founded 4 monasteries. In the painting that you see on this page, He is shown towering over His disciples in one of His mathas.

The great Shankaracarya (acarya is Sanskrt for teacher) is seated on a stool of jewel-encrusted gold. His handsome face pours forth with divine wisdom. There is remarkable expression, an undeniably lifelike aspect, in His eyes and the corners of His mouth. There is prasadam before Him in bartans (utensils) of gold and an army of monks devoted to making arrangements. A deity housed within an ornate mandapam, and a band of disciples along the curved foreground devoted to bhajana-kirtana.


The gesso work is extensive in this Tanjore painting. Superimposed with ample proportions of gold, it is inlaid with miniscule bits of glittering stone which resemble jewels. It is symbolic of the fact that knowledge begets plenitude.
