Sanatana Dharma is the time honoured expression of a whole way of life, Indian culture comprises everything that is outcome of human achievement science, philosophy and religion, morals and aesthetics, politics, economics and sociology. It means that Sanatana Dharma is an expression and explanation of a whole way of life, scriptural and secular. The Vedic heritage of Sanatana Dharma is a discipline and a way of life for the development of both the individual and the society with emphasis on character, competence, commitment and concern for excellence.



Adi Sankara, born in India before Jesus Christ, developed this concept by writing his commentary on the ten principal Upanishads, Brahma Suthra and Bhagavad Gita, called the prastana thrya of Indian Vedantic literature.



There are a number of works of literature which strengthen the Advaitha School. These can be broadly classified into two broad categories:


One, literature strengthening the arguments of Brahmasuthra Bhashya of Adi  Sankara and  second, independent works defending the Advaitha  school from attack of rival schools. Advaithasiddi the magnum opus of H.H. Madhusudana Saraswati belongs to the second category. It is a word for word refutation of arguments by Vysathirtha of the Dwaita (Dualism) School.


H.H. Madhusudhana Saraswati is a  bachelor turned Seer of the 15th Century AD from Bengal, India. In addition to this treatise he has done a number of books including a commentary on Bhagavad Gita called Gudharthadipika.


The monogram aims at giving his approach to Advaitha  School by dividing them into 108 topics. This summary gives in the words of the Seer in Sanskrit and English translation suited for western audience.
