  • About the Book

    This is a unique and distinct work. It studies the Vedanta school of Sankaracarya, Bhaskara, Ramanujacarya, Nimbarkacarya, Madhvacarya, Vallabhacarya and other neglected schools of Srikantha, Sripati Pandit, Vijnana-bhiksu and Baladeva Vidyabhusana. It gives an emphasis on the great Acaryas Brahmasutras commenta-ries with reference to the philosophically important topics, which are discussed in the first four sutras (Catuchutri) in particular and other specific sutras in general. A study of the Vedanta Schools with reference to the Brahmasutra commentaries exposes the distinct characteristics of the Vedanta schools by classifying them with a new parameter of Tantrism. A novel classification of Vedanta schools in terms of Srauta (Aupanisadic schools) and Puranic schools gives us a clue to understand truly the texture and nature of the Brahmasutra. A study of the Vedanta schools in the light of Brahmasutra commentaries gives a new direction to the study of the Brahmasutras.
