This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Upanishads and Brahma Sutras

The Upanishads form an integral part of the Veda, and in case of doubt, at least with respect to doctrine, it is to the Upanishads that we must appeal. The Vendata has its prinicpal teaching drawn from the Upanishads and concentrated into sutra form in the Brahma-Sutras or the Shariraka-Mimansa. The author of these is said to be either Badarayana or Krishna-Dwaipayana, and is again identified with Vyasa. While the Upanisads belong to shruti, the Brahma-Sutras belong to smriti; we will deal with the difference between these two classes of writings below.
