His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Chandrasekhara Bharathi was the Sankaracharya who adorned the Sri Sarada Pitha of Sringeri in the Mysore State. It was the first seat of Advaita Philosophy established by Sri Sankara. His Holiness was a saintly personality of great spiritual eminence and profound scholarship in the Sastras. A Brahmajnani of rare excellence, he was frequently lost in Advaitic experience in periods of Samadhi when the luminous glow in his countenance proclaimed his Brahmanubhava.
His Holiness’s discourses on Hindu Religion and Dharma, which were simple in language and lucid in exposition, were punctuated with homely illustrations, and had the power to convince the doubting and convert the sceptic, coming as he did, in the succession of authentic tradition, his is the classical view of Hindu Dharma in its pristine purity. Some of His Holiness’s teachings, faithfully gathered in his book by one of his devoted disciples, has a special value in the context of ignorance, misunderstanding and bewilderment that assail us at the present time, both as individuals and as a society.
His Holiness, reverently adored as a jivanmukta, occupied the Sringeri Pithafor 43 years from 1912. Like a true yogi that he was, he abandoned his body at the end of his life in 1954 in the sacred waters of the Tungabhadra.
