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.

 

Preface

Born in 1922, V.R. Ganesan graduated from the Presidency College, Madras, with Honours Degree in the year 1942.

He is regularly contributing articles on Vedanta and Gita in Tamil and English and has to his credit a number of books.
