Brahmasutra is an ancient treatise on Hindu religious philosophy. Its 555 aphorisms encapsulate the knowledge of the Supreme which is the theme of 108 Upanishads. An understanding of Vedanta philosophy that is the basis of Hinduism is incomplete without a thorough understanding of this valuable scripture. Brahmasutra was composed in the sutra (short and pithy statements) format by Rishi Veda Vyasa; it is therefore difficult to comprehend its purport without an elaborate commentary. Many outstanding commentaries on Brahmasutra have been published by learned Swamis and erudite academicians that are beyond the level of understanding of the general public. These authors take it for granted that the readers are familiar with the basic terminology and principles of Vedanta; this, however, is not the case. These commentators have emphasized their particular points of view on such abstract topics as the concept of Nirguna and Saguna Brahman, existence of one soul that pervades all living beings or the multiplicity of souls, etc. Such contentious arguments and counter arguments confuse the beginners. These are some of the reasons why Brahmasutra does not enjoy the wide popularity that it deserves. The present volume is planned to bridge over this gap in understanding. Each aphorism has been explained in an easily understandable language. Attempts also have been made to focus on the Shruti texts upon which some of them are based. Most of the Vidyas (meditations) that are mentioned or implied in the text have been summarized so that neophytes can easily comprehend their significance vis-a-vis their own quest for enlightenment. Search for the Supreme reality, which is the main purpose of Brahmasutra, is a unique journey that involves no travel. One has only to carefully look inwards, come face to face with this reality, and enjoy the supreme bliss that everyone is seeking. The key to the mental, moral and spiritual success is easily accessible through a study of `Brahmasutra - an Exposition of Hindu Philosophy.` It is hoped that this text will serve as a useful guide for practitioners and preachers alike. Printed Pages: 434.
