SURESVARA Sri, translated by A J Alston
Realization of the Absolute
The Naiskarmya Siddhi of Sri Suresvara
An English translation of Suresvara's presentation of the pure non-dual teachings (Advaita Vedanta), with reasoned-out explanations to help us understand them.
Suresvara was, according to tradition, a close disciple of Sri Shankara, and entrusted as head of the first of the four great monasteries established by Shankara.
Shanakara and Suresvara account for all of experience without in anyway compromising the non-duality of the supreme Reality. According to this view, all our difficulties arise from lack of knowledge of our true nature, and all limitations are resolved completely and forever by Self-knowledge, which is Realization of the Absolute (Naishkarmya Siddhi).
The text shows why methods that do not give rise to knowledge cannot overcome the illusion that causes limitations and suffering, and presents the right way of reasoning and reflection that leads to discovery of the real principle within. The text consists of 422 verses in four books, with a commentary by the author, that looks ahead to the coming verse.
