#11-Carnatic Singing Lesson-Dasashloki

Sri Sankara meets his Guru Govindapadar, who was in deep meditation in a cave on the banks of the Narmada. On seeing the small boy, the Saint asks hims who he was. It was in response to this simple question that Sri Sankara burst out in a set of ten pregnant stanzas explaining the real nature of the Self which alone he was. The Saint realising that Sri Sankara was a realised soul, who had come to him for initiation only to conform to the normal method of entering the Sannyasa Order, immediately accepted him as a disciple. Shri Shankara sums up the essence of Vedanta in dasashloki .

May Shri Shankara leads us from ignorance to Truth by helping us realize the aatman.
