This epic work is a singular treatise on the entire philosophy of Advaita-vedanta. Panchadashi lays the foundation of the essentials of Vedanta and elucidates the Upanishadic thoughts by revealing the identity of the Self with the supreme Brahman, thus dispelling the ignorance of the Self.

In the sixth chapter, titled ‘Chitradipa-prakarana’, the identity of Brahman and jiva is revealed using the analogy of a painted canvas. The analogy is comprehensively applied to inquire into the nature of jiva, jagat and Paramatman.
