The Saundarya Lahari Camp is a devotional retreat, focussing on the hundred hymns composed by Sri Adi Sankaracharya. The Camp is facilitated by Swami Sharadananda Sarasvati, an eloquent and a well-read teacher, known specially for his reverence of Devi worship and clarity in Vedantic texts.
Saundarya Lahari of Sri Adi Sankaracharya
The Saundarya Lahari is a devotional poem of one hundred hymns composed by Sri Adi Sankaracharya. The poem is divided into two parts – the first part, comprising verses: 1 to 41, is called the Ananda Lahari, or Wave of Bliss; and verses 42 to 100 comprise the Saundarya Lahari, or Wave of Beauty.
The hymn, written in the shikharini metre, extols in the Ananda Lahari, the dynamic aspect of Brahman, as Shakti, manifestations for worship, and the modes of internal meditation. The second part, the Saundarya Lahari, contains a magnificent exposition of the beauties of the charming form of the Divine Mother. Swami Sharadananda Sarasvati, facilitator of the camp, will enlighten the participants on the essence of the verses, their significance and benefits in our daily lives to awaken the devotion within.
