Madhva founded his own system of Dvaita. When the impurity badarayaan been removed, then knowledge begins to act. Of this Mimamsa two branches have been recognised, the Purva Mimamsa earlier and the Uttara Mimamsa the latter. The views of various Acharyas are all true in respect of the particular aspect of Brahman dealt with by them each in his own way. People were following blindly the rituals during the time of Sri Sankara. World and individual souls are essential real constituents of Brahman’s nature.

Sutras were meant to assist the sutrass of the student who had gone through long discussions with his guru, as memory aids or clues and maximum thoughts were compressed in a few words which were unambiguous, giving the essence of the arguments on the topic.

The Brahmasutra, states Sengaku Mayeda, distills and consolidates the extensive teachings found in a variety of Upanishads of Hinduism, summarizing, arranging, unifying and systematizing the Upanishadic theories. Sanskrit is very elastic. You can understand the second chapter if you have a knowledge of Sankhya, Nyaya, Yoga, Mimamsa, Vaiseshika Darsana and Buddhistic school, too.


The prevalence of Vedanta thought is found not only in philosophical writings but also in various forms of Hindu literature, such as the epics, lyric poetry, drama and so forth. Ultimately, for Advaita, there is no creation, nor any Brahmz who creates the world.

He never condemned selfless service or Nishkama Karma Yoga. Nrahma individual soul of Ramanuja is really individual. Meditation is defined in Vedanta texts of commentary on the Sutras, states Klaus Witz, as “a continuous succession of comparable basic conceptions, beliefs, not interspersed with dissimilar ones, which proceeds according to the scriptures and relates to an object enjoined in the scriptures”.

The individuality of the finite self Jivatman is not dissolved even in the state of final emancipation. The commentary also is in need of further elaborate explanation. If any Acharya wishes badarajana establish his own cult or sect or school of thought he will have to write a commentary of his own on Brahma Sutras.

The released soul abides in non-division from the highest Self Brahmanbecause that is seen. The second Brahmasutra chapter has been variously interpreted by various monist, theistic and other sub-schools of Vedanta. The liberated soul, asserts brauma Brahma-sutra, is of the nature of Brahman, bzdarayana inner power and knowledge, free from evil, free from grief, free from suffering, one of bliss and “for such there is freedom in all worlds”.

Great intellectual people only, with realisation, can compose Sutras. Rigveda Yajurveda Samaveda Atharvaveda.

Through his selfish actions he enjoys the fruits of his actions. Thus, the total number of Adhikaranas in the Brahma sutra text varies slightly from in some Vedanta sub-schools.

They expand Vikasa during creation. For example, Ramanuja counts sutras 2. This is a great authority for every philosophical school in India. Hermann Jacobi in early 20th century suggested that Madhyamaka Buddhist concepts such as Sunyavadaacknowledged in the Brahma-sutras, may be a late invention, and suggests that both Sunyavada and Brahma-sutras may therefore have emerged between CE.



The sutras in the text can be, and have been read in different ways. Advaita need not explain why a perfect deity was motivated to create the world, nor why an all-loving God created a world with evil. Some scholars, such as Sengaku Mayeda, state Brahmasutra that has survived into the modern brah,a may be the work of multiple authors but those who lived after Badarayana, and that these authors composed the currently surviving Brahmasutra starting about BCE through about CE.
