Shri Shankara Bhagavatpada incarnated 2531 years ago on Vaishakha Shukla Panchami of the Kali 2594th year (509 BCE).
It is because of the avatara of Bhagavatpada that we continue to celebrate Shivaratri, Navaratri, Rama Navami, Gokulashtami etc. Otherwise the avaidika practices prevalent at His time would have overpowered the Sanatana traditions. Thus the significance of Shankara Jayanti is that it is the Jayanti which preserved all other Jayantis.
It is hence our duty to remember and worship Shri Shankara Bhagavatpada on this day. One may also do this starting from Prathama to Panchami or starting from Panchami. To help in this, we release this Puja Paddhati with Acharya's namavali and stotras on Him:
