Shankaracharya

An infant who lost his father at the age of 4. A boy who forced his mother to let him dedicate his life to society and dharma at the age of 8. A student who mastered the Shruti and Smriti at the age of 12. A philosopher who taught Advaita Vedanta propounding the identity of Atman and Brahman (and by extension the identity cum equality of all the sentient beings) at the age of 16. A scholar who wrote commentaries on all the Principal Upanishads, Brahmasutras, Bhagavadgita, Yoga Sutras, and Dharmasutras at the age of 20.

A poet who wrote Bhajagovinda, Dakshinamurti Stotra, Krishnashataka, and Soundaryalahiri at the age of 25.A revivalist who propounded ancient Knowledge and wisdom to thousands of people across India. A resurrector who reestablished Dharma by debating, defeating, and readmitting those people and sects who were going against the very root of our civilization and preaching pacifism. A savior who resurrected the civilization by touring the entire country from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and founding Mathas to establish Dharma in every nook and corner of the country. These Mathas carry his legacy and stand as firm pillars of our civilization to this day.

A legend who passed away at the age of 32. But who has influenced and guided millions to this day and who is adored by millions to this day.
