A new translation by Swami Prabhavananda (in co-operation with Christopher Isherwood) of the teachings of Shankaracharya (Shankara, the Teacher; 788-820 AD) -- which are commentaries on the Hindu spiritual treatises known as the Upanishads, which in turn form the latter part of the Vedas, the holy scriptures of India.
    The author is the founder of the Vedanta Society of Southern California and was also involved in the independence movement in India.

"Maitreya also taught through Krishna and Shankaracharya at previous times." (Benjamin Creme (1996), The Ageless Wisdom Teaching, p.31). "[T]here are many people in incarnation now who worked with the Christ before in Palestine or in India when He appeared as Shankaracharya and Krishna." (Share International, November 1982, p.8)
