Dear Srimathi Radha:

Bhaja Govindham is a deeply stirring work
of Adhi Sankara  . It has basic questions 
about life and its purpose and provides 
Upadesam to seek shelter at the scared feet of
the Lord to get release from the misery of
SamsAram .

There are a lot of translations available.
You may wish to look up the following thre URLs as
a starter to get at the profound questions
that Adhi Shankara asks in a rhetorical sense:

    This one is by the First Governor General of India ,
    Sri Chakravarhty RajagopAlAchaari and is brilliant 
    for its insights.

Best wishes,
