The Atmopadesha Satakam is the most important work composed by the Guru in Malayalam. In this work, he lays bare and restates the essential content of Vedantic wisdom. This re-visualization is suited for the mindset of modern and scientific age, and may be considered a truly original contribution to both Vedanta Philosophy and Modern Philosophy. Woven into its fabric seamlessly is an analytic-synthetic examination of human consciousness, as well as a critique that indicates the essential and universal content shared by all religions. The present commentary, being intended for beginners, is simple and lucid.
