    Adi shankaracharya was one of the greatest philosophers of India and also a spiritual guru. His teachings are especially relevant to the modern age with all its stresses and strains. Listening or reading about his philosophies gives one immense peace and equanimity of mind. He has also laid out a spiritual roadmap which one can easily follow even in the modern materialistic world.

    Kashmir was the land of sages and Saints , it got its name from Kashyap muni. Adi guru Shankaracharya came and meditated here . Famous saint Abhinav gupta was from here. Srinagar got its name from Sri chakra located in the city. There are many sages who were from here or who came here in search of knowledge. This land of knowledge, spiritualisms and pace is disturbed a lot today due to ignorance. Let’s restore Kashmir to its ancient glory. This can happen only with help of god. Let’s us all pray together to god so that we come to Kashmir as an Avatara as bring peace here..

    veda chanting by kanchi team at lal chowk, Srinagar J&K in presence of Swami Vishwatmanand Saraswati maharaj will soon bring peace at Kashmir as part of Shankarajayanti . It is first time that the place which is sometimes known for violence has witnessed veda chanting.
