11 CE Tamil Translation of Soundarya Lahari
An article on the above topic is available here:
Om Tat Sat


  1. This piece of information is a death knell to the theories that Soundarya Lahiri is a later day ‘interpolation’ of 15th century AD.

  2. Yes, Arun, you are right. Actually there are other works that are attributed to Shankaracharya which have been confirmed to be his own in much later times, for example, in the Yatidharma sangraha of Viśveśvara Saraswati, the works ‘Vākyavṛtti’ and ‘Brahmānuchintanam’ are paraphrased. Before him, Swami Vidyaranya has paraphrased the former work in the Panchadashi, by even naming it. Madhusudana Saraswati has written a whole commentary ‘Siddhānta bindu’ on Shankara’s ‘Daśaśloki’. The commentary has been extensively commented by more than two Advaitins. Amalananda, for example, has authenticated the Prapanchasāra as that of Shankara.
