A book (in Tamil) that covers the life history of Adi Shankaracharya in detail, written by Sri.Ra.Ganapathy (the author who wrote or complied the seven volume “Deivathin Kural” books) was published as a book in 1962 with a Sri Mukham from Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Matam. The book has seen several reprints. One of the latest known edition came out in 1998 under the banner of Divya Vidya Trust.
Since the 1998 edition is not available for purchase now, a fresh reprint of the 1998 edition was brought out by Vidyuth Publications on June 17 2017.
This book can be purchased online through the following links.
I am not sure if this book is available in normal book stores in Chennai….I suggest the people behind this book to comment on this in the comments section.
