The Hymns of Shankara

Shankara (Śankarācarya, c. 8-9 century (?)) was one of the greatest philosophers of the India and the great representative of the Advaita Vedanta school of Indian philosophy. His spiritual and philosophical wisdom found its expression both in his vast philosophical work and his poetry. The Hymns of Sankara are a collection of his unique poetry, addressed to the Lord Shiva, the Goddess, Lord Vishnu, or to the pure Self. They have been translated skillfully into Polish language capturing their unique beauty, metrics, rythm, poetic suggestion and sometimes also the original rhymes (like in the case of the hymn 'Bhaja Govindam'). The translation itself is the artistry of Polish poetry.
