About the Book

In 555 Sutras or aphorisms the BRAHMA-SUTRAS systematizes the philosophy of the Upanishads. Swami Vereswarananda'a 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. The licid and instructive introduction contains an enlightening exposition of Adhyasa or superimposition, besides a comparative study of Shankara, Ramanuja, and Nimbarka.

Review

"Though based on the Bhashya, the book is neither a translation nor even an abridgment of the same; 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 Bhashya 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 Adhikarnas, to its usefulness."

-The Modern Review

"Readable and clear and, so far as we 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

"Such an English Translation of this highly philosophical work as the present one was badly needed. 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

"To me it is 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. I was particularly interested in your handling of Sankara's convincing views on superimposition. I should like to congratulate you on the book's excellent format superior to any book from an Indian Press which I have upon my shelves.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
