Complete Works of Sri Sankaracharya (Sanskrit) - 20 Volumes


Adi Sankaracharya (788-821 CE) was a great saint & philosopher who consolidated the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta, a sub-school of Vedanta. His teachings are based on the unity of the soul and Brahman, in which Brahman is viewed as without attributes. He hailed from Kalady of present day Kerala. Sankara travelled across India and other parts of South Asia to propagate his philosophy through discourses and debates with other thinkers. He founded four mathas (monasteries), which helped in the historical development, revival and spread of Advaita Vedanta. Adi Sankara is believed to be the organizer of the Dasanami monastic order and the founder of the Shanmata tradition of worship.

His works in Sanskrit concern themselves with establishing the doctrine of Advaita (Non-dualism). He also established the importance of monastic life as sanctioned in the Upanishads and Brahma Sutra, in a time when the Mimamsa school established strict ritualism and ridiculed monasticism. Sankara represented his works as elaborating on ideas found in the Upanishads, and he wrote copious commentaries on the Vedic Canon (Brahma Sutra, Principal Upanishads and Bhagavadgita) in support of his thesis. The main opponent in his work is the Mimamsa school of thought, though he also offers some arguments against the views of some other schools like Samkhya and certain schools of Buddhism that he was partly familiar with.

The Works of Sri Sankaracharya [Memorial Edition], 20 volumes published in 1910 by Sri Vani Vilas Press, Srirangam, remains to this day the standard collection of the complete works of Sri Sankaracharya. It includes Sri Sankaracharya's major commentaries as well as his other works, as given in the list below.

1. Brahmasutra-bhashya
2. Brahmasutra-bhashya
3. Brahmasutra-bhashya
4. Upanishad-bhashya, vol. 1: Isa, Kena [2], Katha, Prasna
5. Upanishad-bhashya, vol. 2: Mundaka, Mandukya, Aitareya
6. Upanishad-bhashya, vol. 3: Taittiriya, Chhandogya 1-3
7. Upanishad-bhashya, vol. 4: Chhandogya 4-8
8. Upanishad-bhashya, vol. 5: Brihadaranyaka 1-2
9. Upanishad-bhashya, vol. 6: Brihadaranyaka 3-4
10. Upanishad-bhashya, vol. 7: Brihadaranyaka 5-6, Nrisimhapurvatapani
11. Bhagavad-Gita-bhashya, vol. 1: chaps. 1-9
12. Bhagavad-Gita-bhashya, vol. 2: chaps. 10-18
13. Vishnusahasranama and Sanatsujatiya Bhashyas
14. Vivekachudamani, Upadeshasahasri
15. Miscellaneous Prakaranas vol. 1: Aparokshanubhuti, etc. [7 works]
16. Miscellaneous Prakaranas vol. 2: Prabodhasudhakara, etc. [25 works]
17. Stotras, vol. 1 [30 works]
18. Stotras, vol. 2 [35 works, plus Lalita Trisatistotra Bhashya]
19. Prapanchasara, vol. 1
20. Prapanchasara, vol. 2

There are thus a total of 118 works, counting the two Kena Upanishad bhashyas separately, in this collection. Both Indian and Western scholars agree that many of these works must have been written by later Sankaracharyas rather than the original or
Adi Sankaracharya. But there is no agreement on which ones are genuinely his. Moreover, there are many other texts attributed to Sankaracharya that are not found in this collection, some of which may have been written by Adi Sankaracharya. So it is not a definitive collection of his writings. Nor does it lay any claim to being a critical edition. Its readings can often be improved by comparison with other printed editions and manuscripts. It is
simply the standard collection we have at present.

  1. I hope that all of you will like this post. I believe that this is a rare and valuable collection for all those who are interested in Vedanta and Hinduism. It took me months of tedious search to collect these volumes from Digital Library of India since they were posted there with wrong titles.

    I am still not able to locate "Volume 14" of this set. If anyone happens to have a pdf or hard copy of "Volume 14 of Works of Sri Sankaracharya" 1910 edition published by Sri Vani Vilas Press, Srirangam, I request him/her to share it with me. I will be really grateful to anyone who could help me in this matter.

  46. Anpazhagan,

    Scholars are of varying opinions when it comes to Sankaracharya. Even the Sankaravijaya texts contradict each other on many occasions. So, it is not easy to say anything conclusively about Sankaracharya's life or works.

    Still, I am interested in knowing the name of the book in which Belvalkar discusses this subject. Please provide the details.

      As far as I know, that edition of Rukmini Kalyana is Sanskrit text of mahakavya with this name. It has a Sanskrit commentary and English introduction as well. But, there is no English translation.

    Thank you for a great service - sharing the great works of a true saint.
    There is nothing other than the One Self - yet we struggle to perceive this.

    1. I have not studied Hindi translations of Sankaracharya works thoroughly. So, I cannot give you first hand opinion about them. Gita Press has published Hindi translation of most of Sankaracharya's works. Their publications are considered authentic. You can buy any one text and see for yourself if it suits your purpose.

      I have not come across nay other Hindi translations of Sankaracharya's works.
