My Latest Book

Srimanta Sankaradeva in All-India Perspective is an inter-disciplinary research work, which explores the multi-dimensional interactions of Srimanta Sankaradeva (1449-1568 AD) with the cultural and religious systems in the Indian sub-continent and also evaluates the same from a comparative approach. It brings out the pioneering role played by the saint in areas of social engineering, culture and philosophy in the medieval Bhâratavarsha. The Eka Sarana Nâma Dharma, preached by Srimanta Sankaradeva was accepted in many places of Bhâratvarsha. Even Sant Kabir declared him as God. Guru Nanak was greatly influenced by him.
