Bhagavad Gita
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhagavad_Gita
The Bhagavad Gita (Bhagavad Gītā, "Song of God") is one of the most important scriptures in India. It is revered as a sacred scripture of Hinduism, and considered as one of the most important philosophical classics of the world.

The Bhagavad Gita comprises 700 verses, and is a part of the Mahabharata.

The teacher of the Bhagavad Gita is Krishna, whom Indian’s consider as a manifestation of the Lord Himself, and is referred to within as Bhagavan—the divine one.

The content of the Gita is the conversation between Krishna and Arjuna taking place on the battlefield before the start of the Kurukshetra war. Responding to Arjuna's confusion and moral dilemma, Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior and prince and elaborates on different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies, with examples and analogies. This has led to the Gita often being described as a concise guide to Indian philosophy and also as a practical, self-contained guide to life.

During the discourse, Krishna reveals his identity as the Supreme Being Himself (Svayam bhagavan), blessing Arjuna with an awe-inspiring vision of his divine universal form.

Adi Shankara

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adi_Shankara
Adi Shankara (Malayalam:അദി ശങ്കരന്, Devanāgarī, Ādi Śaṅkara, pronounced; (788 CE - 820 CE), also known as Śaṅkara Bhagavatpādācārya and Ādi Śaṅkarācārya, was an Indian philosopher who consolidated the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta, a sub-school of Vedanta. His teachings are based on the unity of the soul and Brahman, in which Brahman is viewed as without attributes. He hailed from Kalady of present day Kerala.

Shankara travelled across India and other parts of South Asia to propagate his philosophy through discourses and debates with other thinkers. He founded four mathas ("monasteries"), which helped in the historical development, revival and spread of Advaita Vedanta. Adi Shankara is believed to be the organizer of the Dashanami monastic order and the founder of the Shanmata tradition of worship.
