With text, this is the first English translation of the text, with word-for-word English rendering and exhaustive notes based mainly on Shankaracharya's commentary, and Tikas on it by scholiasts of his school.

In 555 Sutras or aphorisms the Brahma-Sutras systematizes the philosophy of the Upanishads. The lucid and instructive introduction contains an enlightening exposition of Adhyasa or superimposition, besides a comparative study of Shankara, Ramanuja, and Nimbarka.


An outstanding specimen of Indian scholarship - conceived with great clarity in its scheme of presentation, and executed with painstaking fidelity to tradition. It should prove to be an invaluable addition to the library of anyone interested in the study of Vedic truths. - - Hamish McLaurin, Writer on Eastern Philosophy, USA

Readable and clear, and , so far, as have examined it, quite reliable. . And students will be grateful for the help it affords them in understanding the Adhyasa Bhashya, which is as difficult as it is important. - - The Hindu

Gives a faithful summary of the arguments of Sankaracharya's commentary on the Sutras . . Without in any way detracting from the strength of clarity of the original exposition. The author has accomplished his task in a most praiseworthy manner. - - Bombay Chronicle

All that is important in the Bhashya has been embodied in the English commentary; while no essential point has been left out, a few of the pregnant hints scattered throughout the Bhashiya have been elaborated in the commentary; the inclusion of the exposition of Adhyasa, rarely to be found even in Sanskrit work of this class, has added to the worth of the book and the insertion of the gist of Adhikaranas, to its usefulness. - - The Modern Review
