Hinduism - Who Is Madhava?

 


 (14th c.) The Sarvadar shanasangraha, a philosophical encyclopedia written in the late fourteenth century, was written by Madhava.

Madhava compiles the viewpoints of all current philosophical systems in this literature, organizing them in hierarchical order according to his assessment of their worth.

The materialist school, according to the text, is the lowest and least trustworthy, since its proponents entirely reject the value of any religious life.

Madhava's Advaita Vedanta school is considered the greatest and most complete manifestation of reality.

Although prejudiced, the Sarvadarshanasangraha is one of the few remaining texts that examines all of the current schools' opinions.
