Shri Adi Shankara's time on Earth was brief, but his contribution to the world was immeasurable. A poet, philosopher, and reformer of India's age-old monastic order, he composed many of India's most renowned spiritual treasures. Among his most acclaimed Vedantic works, the Bhaja Govindam stands alone in its ability to rouse the reader from the illusory state of ordinary human consciousness. For this reason, it has also been called moha mudgara,'the hammer that crushes human delusion.” That its origin was nothing less than pure, divine compassion is undeniable. In the Bhaja Govindam, Shri Adi Shankara cuts through to the heart of the human dilemma. Reminding us that God is the only unchanging principle of permanent bliss and happiness, he implores us, “Love God, love God, love God, O fool!”
