Another of the items I am overdue in dealing with is to post the PDF of 
the English translation of this  work very kindly provided by our member 
Shri D.V.N. Sharma.  Shankara Jayanti which was today in the U.S. seems 
like an appropriate time to make it available.

It is an epitome of the teachings of Advaita Vedanta written in Sanskrit 
in 8 chapters.  (Supposedly there were originally 12, but the last 4 are 
not available in print.)  The author is the famous Swami Hariharananda 
Saraswati aka Karpatra Maharaj.  Swami Ramananda Saraswati translated it 
into English.

A notable thing about this work is that it was held in great esteem by 
Shri Ramana Maharshi who normally didn't care for written shastras.
