A manual for life in the modern world.

The Vedangas

We made the distinction earlier between the darshanas and the Vedangas, which were ancillary sciences. Having arrived at Mimansa, we see that these sciences are most directly attached to this darshana due to its subject matter, which is the proper understanding of texts; likewise due to its connection with action and the accomplishment of ritual, it makes sense that the proper pronunciation of words, as well as the precise meaning of grammar and spelling, would be of utmost concern here.
