A manual for life in the modern world.

The Brahma-sutras

The teaching of Vedanta have been synthesized and concentrated into the form of the Brahma-sutras, which are attributed to Badarayana, who is identified with Vyasa, the intellectual collective responsible for codifying the scriptures themselves. The text of the Brahma-sutras is extraordinarily concise, leading to the production of various commentaries, two of which are important for us here: first, the commentary of Shankaracharya, which represents the Shaiva tendency; second, that of Ramanuja, representing the Vaishnava tendency.
