Six verses on the theme of spiritual liberation by Sri Adi Shankaracharya, encapsulating the teachings of Advaita Vedanta, or non-dualism. Legend has it that the seer Govidapada noticed a young boy of eight wandering along the River Narmada and asked, "Who are you?". The boy, Adi Shankara, answered with these stanzas, whereupon Swami Govindapada embraced him as his disciple. These verses are highly valued for progress in contemplation practices leading to Self-Realization.
