Brahma Sutra by Swami Sivananda
An English Commentary on Brahma Sutra with Sanskrit text, word by word meaning and running translation by Swami Sivananda.
Brahmasutra by Vyasa (Badarayana) is one of the three pillars of Vedanta known as 'Prasthana Traya'. Knowledge of Brahmasutra is considered essential for a proper understanding of Vedanta.
Over the centuries, there have been many commentaries on the Brahma Sutras, but either they are too short and in sufficient to be useful for a comprehensive study of the Sutras, or are extremely tough and abstruse to be utilized by men of ordi nary understanding. This work of Swami Sivananda is of a unique type in it self, unrivalled by any other. This commentary is neither too short to be useless, nor too verbose to be unintelligible, but follows a via media course, use ful to one and all, mainly the spiritual aspirants.
An elaborate introduction precedes the work in addition to a short introduction and a summary of the different Adhikaranas preced ing each Pada. These are all a boon to the student of the Brahma Sutras for which the author has to be eulogised. Each Sutra also contains a word-by-word meaning and a running translation.
The text of the Brahma Sutras has been included herein to enable the readers to do Svadhyaya and get them by heart for purpose of meditation.
