The Chandrasekhara of Kanchi and The Chandrasekhara of Sringeri

I was delighted to read an article on Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati Mahaswamigal of Sringeri Math, in the current issue of "Mountain Path". I am glad that the MP has included an article on the Mahaswami, a Jnani, who was the pontiff of the Sringeri Math from 1912-1954. He was a Brahmajnani and his life and teachings are a great source of inspiration to us.

The life and teachings of Swami Chandrasekhara Bharati have been published in the following books:

  1. Chandrasekhara Bharati, Jagadguru Sankaracharya of Sringeri, Selected works, Part 1
  2. Sparks from a Divine Anvil, compiled by Sri Jnanananda Bharati, Ganesh & Co., Chennai
  3. R. Krishnaswami Iyer (Swami Jnanananda Bharati), Dialogues with the Guru: Talks with His Holiness Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati Swamin, with an introduction by Paul Masson
  4. Swami Jnanananda Bharati, The Saint of Sringeri, Sri Ramakrishna Press, Madurai, 1963.

An introduction on Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati Mahaswamigal can be found in

I found an interesting article in the website on the mutual admiration and the highest respect that Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati Mahaswamigal and Paramacharya had for each other. The article is written by Ra. Ganapati and the link is given below:
