Sri Sankaracharya,also called Adi Shankara (8th century approx.) was a philosopher and Spiritual Master. Shankara advocated philosophy of Advaita, or non-dualism, regarding man and God as aspects of the same unified consciousness. His philosophy sought to avoid dogma and ritualism and restore the greatness and importance of the Vedas, placing particular emphasis on the Upanishads. Shankaras teachings contributed to a renaissance in Hinduism at a time when Buddhism and Jainism were gaining popularity. He is considered the founder of the Dasanami sannyasin, an order of Hindu renunciants.
