An Introduction to Shankaracharya’s Prabodha Sudhakara
Prabodha Sudharaka is not commonly known treatise on Advaita Vedanta composed by Sri Adi Shankaracharya. Prabodha means awakening. Sudhakara means the ocean of nectar. Our real nature is existence-conscious-bliss absolute. But we have forgotten our true nature and suffering in darkness. The moment we realize our true nature we experience bliss. This idea is well developed in the text.
Prabodha Sudhakara consists of 19 chapters comprising 257 verses. Arrangement of chapters is very interesting. It begins with gross body, moves on to sensory organs, then the mind, dispassion, revelation of the Self, maya, subtle and causal bodies, experiencing non-dualism, enlightenment, devotion, meditation, becoming one with Saguṇa Brahman and Nirguṇa Brahman and finally the Divine Grace for absorption unto Him.
