Intimate Experience of the Reality

Aparoksanubhuti, an original composition of Sri Adi Sankaracharya, is an introductory text explaining the fundamental concepts and terminologies used in Vedanta, the Indian science of Life. Literally meaning the “Direct Experience,” it is a hands-on book for anyone who seeks the essential nature of Reality and Existence.
