Sankaradeva was not a philosopher, nor did he
endeavor to evolve a new philosophy. Nevertheless, his literary works are pointers to the
facts that he was steeped in the lore of Hindu philosophy. The philosophical basis of his
religion, historically speaking, is the eculmination of the Bhakti movement of Northern
India augmented by Ramananda, and of Southern India. Sankaradeva holds that God is the
central Reality of soul and matter and neither can exist without Him. They exist in Him
and are inseparable.
