The Vedantasara is an easy and concise commentary on the Brahmasutra-s of Badarayana who is believed to be identical with Vyasa, the famous author of the Mahabharata. The Vedantasara was written by Bhagavad Ramanuja in accordance with the views of the Visistadavaita school of Vedanta. Sri Ramanuja was born at Sriperumbudur near Kanchipuram as the son of Kesavasomayajin and Bhudevi. He was a pupil of Mahapurana and a younger contemporary of Sri Yamunacarya of Srirangam. His other works are: Sribhasya, Bhagavadgitabhasya, vedarthasamgraha, Vedantadipa, Gadyatray and Nityagrantha. Regarding the complete biography of Sri Ramanuja, the attention of the readers is drawn to the Ramanujacampu of Ramanujacarya, published as No. 6 in the Madras Govt. Oriental MSS. Series. His doctrine and teaching have been fully dealt with by Prof. P.N. Srinivasacharya in his book entitled The Philosophy of Visistadvaita published as No. 39 in The Adyar Library Series. This system was first expounded by Sri Nathamuni, developed to a great extent by Sri Yamunacarya in his works and perfected by Sri Ramanuja in his works like the Sribhasya, and the Vedarthasamgraha, after refuting the contrary view of the opponents.
