Shankracharyas

Shankaracharyas - Incomplete Saint / अधूरे संत

Shankaracharyas are incomplete saints and dont have knowledge about the Supreme God.

Like every other saint, the Shankaracharyas also have knowledge up to the three Gods i.e. Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva. Apart from worshipping Vishnu and Shankar ji, they also consider the atma (soul) to be similar to Brahm (God). Therefore they support this statement "Aham Atma Brahm" or "Aham Brahmasmi". This is also called the Mahavakya. The Shankaracharyas are also oblivious to the Tatvagyan mentioned in the Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita.

Adi Shankaracharya

Born in 508 BCE. 

Died aged 32 in 476 BCE.

Adi Shankaracharya was born in kerala on the coast of Purna river in Kaladi village in the devout Nambudari Shaiv Brahmin family.

According to the Mathas of Guru Tradition, Shankaracharya was born by the blessing of God Shankar. Therefore, he was named Shankar.

At the time Adi Shankaracharya was born, Kaliyuga had passed 3000 years.

In the book Himalaya Teerth it is written, "When three thousand years of Kalyug would have passed, to gain victory over the philosophy of Buddhist Mimamsakas, Shankaracharya i.e. Shankar will take birth in the form of a celibate."

So how much Kaliyuga had passed when Shankaracharya was born?

When Shankaracharya was born, 3000 years of Kaliyuga had passed.

So what is the Age of Kaliyuga in the Year 2000?

  • Shankaracharya was born in 508 BCE. At that time 3000 years of Kaliyuga had passed.
  • In the year 2000 CE, 2000 years had passed since the birth of Jesus Christ.
  • This means  in the year 2000 CE, 2508 years had passed since the birth of Shankaracharya. (508 + 2000)
  • This means 5508 years of Kalyug had passed in year 2000.

Therefore Age of Kaliyuga in the year 2000 CE is 5508 years.
