Manisha Panchakam

A Social History Of India. Whoever realises this secret behind pancha,am Glow of things that are with life and lifeless, that are moving and unmoved, Whoever realises and contemplates on the Real Glow, the Divine Glow behind all the glowing, is my Guru, irrespective of his caste and learning, may he be a chandala or a wise brahmin!

Nowhere in these five verses are there references to the questions posed to him by the chandala. Whose intellect is ever unified with the eternal ocean of this Bliss Supreme, he is not a mere knower of the Brahman, but he is the Brahman itself. At such a beckoning from Manisua Sri Shankara, Panhakam very humbly, yet poignantly lashes out a few questions containing the Ultimate Truth of Vedanta.

He is as fallible or infallible as anyone else and he was obviously conditioned by the flavor of castiesm, as practiced during his time. So what else is left in AV for its salespersons to sell? One can do science also with clear conscience after realising the Brahma.

After requested by his Disciple Shuka to open the secrets of Maha Vakya Chathushtaya to him, Lord Parama Shiva preached this most secret and pious knowledge to him. For a brief information of all, Adi Shankara revived Sanatan Dharma at young age compared to all intellectuals of today, at least.

It is a bunch of BS when compared with Christianity. Could the all knowing Sri Sri Shankara who is the foremost profounder of Advaita Vedanta react thus seeing a Chandala? Contextually, the question was posed when Sankara asked him to move out of the way. There are quite a few sections that deal with the caste system and the lament from Shankara of the then Brahminical hold on the system.

He asks again why is space fully occupied both in the golden jug and an earthen pot? Manisha Panchakam conveys the message that once a person has attained Self-knowledgeconsiderations such as his caste are totally irrelevant. The christians of today do not follow the caste system, but white pancuakam and woman of yester-years did follow the slave system, and their religion did not stop them either.

So what exactly is he a role model for? Satish, Well, what you are attempting is called cherry picking. Panchwkam idam jagachcha sakalam chinmaatra vistaaritam. However, though Shankara might acknowledge that Shudras and Dalits could obtain Advaitic realization, he did not believe they were allowed to study, or chant Vedas and Upanishads, or hold the title of acharya. How do we know if Sankara did not do enough to remove caste differentiation?

That which divine glow replenishes through the three stages of ‘awakenness’,’dream’ and ‘deep slumber’ that which is present in all from the ‘Divine’ to the smallest creature like an ‘ant’, that is ‘I’, not just panchakan ‘visible form’ to the naked eye We just give names so that we can develop an attachment to them in the form and name we like. AV has fooled even most of the rationalist intellectuals like Ambedkar who saw in some of its parts what he chose to term as BrahmaismNehru and surprise of surprises!


Manisha Panchakam is a set of five verses slokas [1] composed by Shri Adi Shankaracharya[2] the Hindu philosopher.

So it was a indirect attack on caste establishment, but elite class compromised all, but not the social division. Substance I am none other than a part and parcel of the Brahman The Absolute. Sri Ranganathananda was right in observing that certain amount of mythology had crept into the story of the encounter of Shakaracharya pannchakam the untouchable.

A minute panchaakm of this Bliss Supreme is adequate to satisfy the Indra and other celestials.
