Foreword

The Brahmasutras are brief pithy statements (aphorisms) which analyse statements occuring in the Upanisads. Through this analysis a cogent systematic teaching is presented which will help a spiritual seeker to attain the knowledge of Brahman. Brahma-jnanam is the only means of freedom from samsara. There are 555 such sutras and with their commentaries and sub-commentaries, the text is voluminous. However, the first four sutras are considered to be the essence. They are known as the Catussutri.

Sri V.R. Ganesan is one of my senior students. He is a person who lives the Vedantic teaching and shares his knowledge with others. He has authored several books and articles which are highly appreciated. Based on my Brahmasutra-classes he has brought out the present book on Catussutri.

I congratulate Sri Ganesan and pray that many readers should benefit from this valuable work.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
