For over a millennium, Sankara's Vedanta advaitism: nondualism, has been exposed to extensive discussion, debate, and even polemic. In modern times, it has often been viewed as a system of metaphysical thought, involving a set of several subtle, though interrelated, doctrines - which all have the Upanisads at their base.
The book does not just present Vedanta as a system of metaphysical thought. It is essentially an off-beat effort seeking to philosophically analyse the concepts of Atman, Brahman, and the World-which not only count among the fundamental concepts in the philosophic thought of the Upanisads, but also help capture the true meaning, profoundity, richness and beauty of Sankara's advaita itself. Also, in the specific contexts of Sankara's philosophy vis-a-vis the Upanisadic texts.
