The Time of Acharya Sankara

  • Dr R. Subramony Associate professor and Head in English The Madura college (Autonomous) Madurai


It was the time when Buddhism was on the decline in India after flourishing for nearly a thousand years. In the midst of the prevailing degenerate religious and social conditions, Sankara was fired with the zeal of re-establishing the supremacy of the Vedic religion and philosophy in all its purity and grandeur and cleansing society of all accretions and excess by assimilating to it the good points in Buddhism that were in harmony with the Vedic teachings.
