KALADI - THE BIRTH PLACE OF ADI SANKARA

He realized that the outcaste was none other than the Lord of Kashi and fell Prostrate at his feet. He broke forth into an Advaitic hymn which has become famous as the Manishapanchaka-Five Verses of Human wisdom and which has this refrain: The man who sees the same self in all beings and leads his life accordingly, is my guru, be he an outcaste or a high-caste Brahmin.

Sankara's next destination was Badari in the Himalayas. Badari being the place of penance of Vyasa, Sankara chose to stay there and write the commentary on the Brahmasutras, on ten Upanishads, on the Gita, the Vishnu -Sahasranama, etc. Thus he completed the commentaries on the three main basic authorities of Hinduism viz. the Upanishads, the Brahmasutra and the Gita. The remaining years of his life he spent preaching and teaching Vedanta.
