Sri S. N. Sastri (1922 – 2015)
It is with sadness and regret that we have to announce the death of Sri S. N. Sastri, one of the oldest and most respected scholars of Advaita. Sri Sastri was a moderator of the Advaitin forum for as long as I can remember. Recently, he had mostly ceased to participate in discussions as he found them very tiring but he remained an authority to whom we often turned for guidance – I consulted him on the topic of eka jIva vAda earlier this year and we were last in touch regarding ‘A-U-M’ only a couple of months ago.
