Jagadguru Shankaracharya, also known as Shankara, was born in Kalady which is an agraharam (a Brahmin village) in Kerala. Shankara was the first and foremost philosopher who explained the concepts of “Aatma” (soul), “Paramathma” (divine soul), “Vairagya” (renunciation) and “Moksha” (salvation). He wrote Bhashyas or commentaries on all Vedas, and ithihasas like Bhagvad Gita. He established many Maths or Peethas all over India.
