અદ્વૈત વેદાંતના આચાર્યોની યાદી
|આ લેખનું ભાષાંતર કરવાની જરૂર છે.|
મોટા ભાગે કોઇકે આ પાનું બીજી ભાષાના લેખનમાંથી ઉતાર્યું છે અને એનું પૂરી રીતે ભાષાંતર હજુ થયું નથી. મહેરબાની કરી આ પાનાંનો અનુવાદ કરી વિકિપીડિયા ને આગળ વધારવામાં અમારી મદદ કરો અને અનુવાદ પૂર્ણ થયા બાદ આ ઢાંચો કાઢી નાંખો. અનુવાદ કરવા અહિંયા ક્લિક કરો.
અદ્વૈત વેદાંત (સંસ્કૃત अद्वैत वेदान्त)ને હિંદુ દર્શનશાસ્ત્રની વેદાંત (શાબ્દિક અર્થ, અંત અથવા વેદનો મુખ્ય ઉદ્દેશ, સંસ્કૃત) શાખાની સૌથી વધારે પ્રભાવશાળી ઉપશાખા માનવામાં આવે છે. વેદાંતની અન્ય શાખા દ્વૈત અને વિશિષ્ટાદ્વૈત છે. અદ્વૈત (શાબ્દિકનો અર્થ અનન્યતા)એ એકેશ્વરવાદ વિચારધારાની પરંપરા છે. "અદ્વૈત" એટલે સ્વ (આત્મા) અને સર્વ (બ્રહ્મ)ની ઓળખ. અદ્વૈત વેદાંતના આચાર્યોની યાદી નીચે મુજબ છે.
