Please accept my humble obesiance and all glories to the ISKCON Founder Acharya Srila Prabhupada!
Today morning I was hearing Srila Prabhupada’s Morning Walk Conversation from November 20th, 1975 entitled “Christ Survived The Cross”. Towards the ends of the conversation Srila Prabhupada mentions that Sripada Shankaracharya was conceived by his mother when she was a widow by a temple priest and for that reason he was a Varna Sankara and so he is Sankaraacharya (as in Varna Sankara). Srila Prabhupada states that Sripada Shankaracharya’s mother was disturbed by her conception of Shankaracharya but her father assured her that the child will be a great personality.
Till date, I have heard accounts that Sripada Shankaraacharya’s father was present during his birth and died in his early childhood. With due respect to Sripada
Shankaraacharya whom Caitanya Mahaprabhu personally venerated and Srila Prabhupada,
I request the Vaishnavas to throw more light on this topic (Was Shankaraacharya illegitimately conceived?). Please hear the original audio recording if you have
access to the same as the transcription on www.prabhupadavani.org does not appear to be a 100% faithful reproduction of the original conversation.
