KALADI - THE BIRTH PLACE OF ADI SANKARA

He met his guru, Govinda, on the banks of the Narmada River. Under him he mastered yoga, Vedanta and other systems and became a knower of the Brahman. The guru was immensely pleased with his disciple and bade him go to Kashi next and write the commentaries for various scriptures and re-establish the Eternal religion.

Sankara obeyed his master and on the way worshipped at several temples, teaching scriptures to earnest students. His erudition and exposition attracted many scholars as also disciples. The first sanyasin disciple of Sankara was Sanandana who later came to be known as Padmapada.
