The company of the good weans one away from false attachments; when attachment is lost, delusion ends; when delusion ends, the mind becomes unwavering and steady. An unwavering and steady mind is merited for Jeevan Mukti (liberation even in this life). from the hymn “Bhaja Govindam” composed by Adi Shankara (788-820) Satsangatve nissangatvam Nissangatve nirmohatvam Nirmohatve nischalatatvam Nischalatatve jeevanmukthih

2 Enakshi Ganguly = ""...also known as Moha Mudgara (Hammer [to shatter] illusion) is a popular 8th century[1] Hindu devotional composition in Sanskrit attributed to Adi Shankara. This work of Adi Shankaraunderscores the view that devotion (Bhakti) to God, Govinda, is a vastly important part of general spirituality, as emphasised by Bhakti Yoga and the Bhakti movement.[2] This work is generally considered a summary of Adi Shankara's Advaita Vedantaphilosophy."Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhaja_Govindam"
3 Enakshi Ganguly = ""SankarAcArya is the most important teacher of the advaita school of vedAnta, and his commentaries to the upanishads, the bhagavad-gItA and the brahmasUtras define the parameters of advaita thought. However, it must be remembered that all vedAnta philosophy really goes back to the upanishads, and SankarAcArya is regarded as a pre-eminent teacher who continued the upanishadic tradition. The name SankarAcArya has become a title for the heads of the numerous advaita institutions in India today, because of the great respect and fame associated with it.The philosophy of advaita, literally non-dualism, is the premier and oldest extant among the vedAnta schools ofIndian philosophy. The upanishadic quest is to understand brahman, the source of everything, the Atman, the Self, and the relationship between brahman and Atman. The upanishads explore these issues from different angles. The advaita school teaches a complete essential identity between brahman and Atman. In other vedAntic traditions, the essential relationship between Atman and brahman is understood in different ways."Source: http://www.advaita-vedanta.org/avhp/"
