Bhaja Govindam - An exposition through Upanyasam - by Srivatsa Jayarama Sharma
Aadhi Sankara has addressed his many works to every type of seeker, ranging from the novice to the scholar. Bhaja Govindam has a simplicity that seems addressed to the novice, yet it carries meaning that is profound. Each one of its 31 verses points to the unreality of the many temptations of this transitory existence and ends with the recurring refrain urging us to seek Govinda as the ultimate Reality.
In this live recording, Upanyasa Chakravarthi Srivatsa S.Jayarama Sharma portrays the finer elements of Bhaja Govindam in his inimitable lucid style as a conversation between a retired Government pensioner and Aadhi Sankara
Srivatsa.S.Jayarama Sharma, who learnt the nuances of Vedas and Sanadhana Dharma under his illustrious father Srivatsa Soma Deva Sharma, himself a veteran in 18 Puranas, is also a Post Graduate in History from Annamalai University.
With more than 3 decades of service to the society as an Upanyasaka in Narayaneeyam, Ramayanam, Bhagavatham and Mahabharatham, to his credit, Srivatsa Sharma, today is the torch bearer of Hindu Philosophy relevant to the youth of India.
His portrayal is dramatic yet authentic, down to earth yet imaginative, hilarious yet poignant, innovative thus ingenious.
