ABOUT THE TEXT
Bhaja Govindam contains thirty – one verses. It was composed by the philosopher-saint Adi Shankaracharya, popularly known as Shankara. Shankara was born in 788 A.D. in Kaladi, a village in the west coast of India.
Early in life he took to sannyasa, celibacy and renunciation. He died at the age of thirty – two.
The Bhaja Govindam highlights the two human motivations – acquisition and enjoyment. Its thirty-one verses point out the delusion in external pursuit and urges one to seek the supreme Self.
