Author: Sankaracarya;Translated by Swami Gambhirananda
The Brahma Sutras are the third of the canonical texts and are regarded as the Nyaya-prasthana, because they explain the teachings of Vedanta in a logical order. The work is known by other names including Vedanta-sutra, Sariraka-sutra, and Bhiksu-sutra.The Brahma Sutra Bhasya is an important but difficult Vedanta scripture. This is our most popular translation, and is regarded by some as indispensable for all students of Vedanta. Includes word for word meaning of each aphorism under its Sanskrit text, followed by a running translation, with additional words in brackets for clarification.Translation based primarily on the Ratnaprabha.
