 Sri Adi Shankara and Sringeri Sharada Peetham We, the present generation are extremely fortunate to be in the midst of the twelfth birth centenary of Shankara.The great spiritual organisation at Sringeri established by Sri Shankara has made a cultural conquest of the countrywithout any physical force and has stood the test of time and gained veneration, respect, help and patronage from variousrulers irrespective of their religion. Scholars of repute, administrators and others in different walks of life,in modern times have remained loyal to the Sringeri Mutt that has had a line of highly philosophical, saintly and scholarlyPontiffs in its illustrious lineage. The farsighted organising ability of Adi Shankara has proved itself in Sringeri,to be colossal and amazing. It was given to the thirty third Pontiff of Sringeri Sharada Peetham, Sri Sacchidananda Shivabhinava Nrisimha Bharati Mahaswamigal,who is considered a purnavatara of Sri Shankara, to initiate Shankara Jayanti Celebrations, throughout the country.It was this Jagadguru who resurrected the long forgotten Kaladi and caused the publication at one and the same time thecomplete works of Sri Adi Shankara. It is the grace of the great Shankara Bhagavatpada that the Sringeri Sharada Peethamhas played such a significant role.  (Concluded)
