Not Two: The Essence of Non-Duality

Author Name: Yellamraju Srinivasa Rao, Padma Neppalli | Format: Paperback | Genre : Religion & Spirituality | Other Details

“This royal path (Advaita), revealed by the sages of yore, is now in danger of being closed. The by-lanes are being taken for the royal path. Our effort now is to make people realize that these diversions from the royal road will lead them nowhere. Life’s real problem is not solved with these shortcuts to spirituality. These shortcuts will only result in endangering the seeker… This is a movement for the propagation of the true Vedantic wisdom, the legacy left behind by Shankara Bhagavathpada, the timeless knowledge that is eminently adaptable to the modern times.”
----Shri Yellamraju Srinivasa Rao

What is the Absolute Truth? What is my essential nature? How can I grasp the truth and make it my every-day experience? In this book, Shri Yellamraju Srinivasa Rao, with great insight and clarity, answers questions that intrigue seekers of the truth. Srinivasa Rao’s clear and lucid explanations of the Absolute Truth resonate deeply, and awaken the seeker to a direct experience of the Self as Pure Consciousness.

“This book is a very useful addition to the Vedanta texts in English. It is an excellent summarization of Advaita.” --- Dr. Aravinda Rao Karanam, Retired DGP, now teaching at

 “Shri Yellamraju Srinivasa Rao imparts a no-frills Advaita that has a high fidelity to Shankara’s core teaching. His unique style of explicating the Knowledge Path captures analytical minds and makes one marvel at the rigor of logic and precision of the ancient Indian Sages.  His metaphors are often enthralling and highly instructive. Here is a truly rewarding Advaita text that challenges everyone’s intellect.” ---Dr. Ramesam Vemuri, Author of Religion Demystified, and writer at

Yellamraju Srinivasa Rao, Padma Neppalli

A writer by profession, with more than thirty years of experience in high-tech, Padma currently works as the Director of Information Development for a large chipmaker in California. Initiated into the spiritual path at age ten, Padma spent over twenty years studying and practicing mantra, tantra, yoga, and meditation techniques with various teachers around the globe. In 2005, she discovered Shri Yellamraju Srinivasa Rao, and found his lucid talks on Advaita Vedanta resonate within her more deeply than any other. After this profound experience, she committed herself fully to Advaita Vedanta. 

Srinivasa Rao was a prolific teacher who published over fifty books and gave over two-thousand hours of talks on Advaita Vedanta in his native language, Telugu. The sharp clarity of his teachings gave his students a panoramic vision of the Truth and the tools to sustain that vision. To share his lucid teaching with the English-speaking seekers of the world, Padma has begun translating his works into English. Recently, she published the Not Two: The Essence of Non-Duality, an interpretive translation of Srinivasa Rao’s original book, Jagadguru Mahopadesam.

Padma lives in San Francisco, CA USA, with her family.  Contact:
