The Nirvana Shataka

Manish Modi who runs the wonderful Hindu Granth Karyalay bookshop specialising in Jain and Indic literature has just sent this: “The Nirvana Shataka by Adi Shankaracarya, is arguably the most beautiful verse in the entire Vedic tradition. Reflecting closely the Dravyayarthika Naya of Jain teacher Kundakunda, the lyrics are hauntingly beautiful, and combined with the melodious singing, the effect is divine.” Best on full screen and external speakers!
