My translations of works of Adhi sankara

Not open for further replies.


For the past ten years I have been doing translation of various stotrams,. I have so far translated 600 stotra rathnas. I am now trying to look back as to that I have done.

Possibly the greatest contribution to the stotra literature has come from Adhi Shankara. His utter sense of devotion , simplicity in choice of words, fluency and very musical writings have endeared his writings to all his devotees. I had the good fortune to translate some of his great works in to English and they are:-

Dear Shri Ramachander

Greetings . You have done a monumental work with patience and perseverance. No success either in the material world
or in the spiritual path is possible without these qualities. Perseverance is continued application to anything which
one has begun. With steadfast pursuit you have translated 600 stotra rathnas which is a difficult task. With good command
over english, good understanding of each and every sanskrit verse, unquestionable bhakti towards Adi Shankara
dedication and devotion you have accomplished this objective. I pray to Adi Shankara to bless you for long life and
robust health for very many more years.

with best wishes
