WHAT IS "BRAHMSUTRA" AND "SHANKAR-BHASHYAM"?--BOOK DESCRIPTION.
The Brahma sūtras, also known as the Vedānta Sūtras, Uttar-Mimansa are
one of the three canonical texts of the Vedānta school of Hindu
philosophy.The Brahma sūtra is an early exposition of the
Vedanta-interpretation of the Upanishads Of Four Vedas-an Indian ancient
heritage given by Rushis, Munis, Drashta-Rushis, Vedarshis in Sanskrut-
Language. It is an attempt to systematise the various strands of
the Upanishads which form the background of the orthodox systems of
thought. It is also called Uttara-Mimāṃsā or the investigation of the
later part of the Vedas, as distinguished from the Mimāṃsā of the
earlier part of the Vedas and the Brahmanas which deal with ritual or
Karma-kānda. It is intended to be a summary of the teaching of the
Upanishads.AuthorThe Brahma Sutras or Brahmasuthra are attributed to
While commentators like Adi Shankara treat Bādarāyaņa, the author of
the Brahma Sūtra, as the Jnana-Shakti Avatara (knowledge-power
incarnation) of God, Vaishnavite tradition identifies him with Krishna
Dwaipayana Vyāsa, the author of the Mahābhārata.
Lexicographers like Hemachandra (A.D.1088-1173) (vide his
Abhidhānacintāmaņi - Martyakāņda, 512) support this view. Since he
lived along with his disciples and son Śhuka, at the Badarī in the
Himālayas, he might have used this name in his composition. Bādarāyana
also appears in the Samavidhana Brahmana of the Samaveda.Overview The
Brahma Sūtras are also known by other names: Vedānta Sūtras, Uttara
Mīmāmsā-sūtras, Śārīraka Sūtras, Śārīraka Mimāmsā-sūtras. Vaishnavas
also call this the Bhikṣu sūtras.'BRAHMSUTRA' is recommended / referenced by
Jagadguru Bhagvan Shri Krishna in 'BhagvadGita" as "ऋषिभिर्बहुधा गीतं छन्दोभिर्विविधैः प्रुथुक्I
ब्रह्मसूत्रपदश्चैव हेतुमद्भिर्विनिश्चितैः" ( By Many types of Diferent Chhndas, many types sung by
Rishis, And decided by the root-caused 'BrahSutra' pad ).(BhagvadGita 13/4)
