Bhaja Govindam the immortal classic of Adi Shankaracharya holds the gist of all his Vedantic works. This new book based on the classic titled Bhaja Govindam: Follow Your Heart by Chandrika is a translation along with an explanation elaborating the relevance and adaptability of each verse in Bhaja Govindam to the present day world.
Adi Shankaracharya’s Bhaja Govindam, also known as Moha Mudgara or The End of Illusion, is a collection of thirty-one verses in Sanskrit. It looks at the eternal question of man's quest for happiness in a world that is transient and filled with delusions. Bhaja Govindam speaks of man's weaknesses – lust, anger, greed and attachment – and the steps needed to overcome them.
Apart from the translation and explanation, the book contains an exhaustive biography of Adi Sankara, his contribution to Hinduism and a chapter on the relevance of Bhaja Govindam today.
The translation and commentary is by Chandrika, who has a background in academics and teaching for over two decades. She is the author of another translation, Srimad Rajchandraji’s Atma Siddhi.
