Vedanta Kesari May 2015 -  writes about the book

The author of this book has deftly avoided getting into the waters of controversy regarding dates and times found in the other biographies. She has based her work on Madhava Vidyaranya’s Shankara Digvijaya and has presented to us a fascinatingly cogent story of this great phenomenon.

It is an authentic account of Shankara’s life and works and will be counted among the finest monographs on the subject.

The author does not just dryly narrate the course of events; she richly stuffs the events with concepts and ideas that keep evoking the reader’s choicest feelings. The  Upanishads, the  Brahma Sutras,  Bhagavad Gita, Shankara’s mesmerizing compositions, his treatises, his stotras, the gods and goddesses of the Vedic pantheon, quotes of other saints and thinkers all intersperse the description of events.
