But this sutra-s were very short statements and they could be interpreted in different ways; consequently a number of commentators arose. They interpreted this sutra-s differently. The performance of the rituals mentioned therein grants only limited and transitory results. Hence these Vedic scholars went in search of other systems that could give unlimited and ever-lasting results.
Badarayana is the author of the Brahmasutra-s. He has stated therein, on the authority of the Upanisads that the knowledge of Brahman leads to everlasting benefits. Badarayarana mentions the names of Asmarathya, Audulomi, Badari and Kasakrtsna to show that they also were writers on the subject before him.
