Brahma Sutras, Vedanta Sutras, or Shariraka Sutras are a collection of 555 sutras arranged into four chapters that form part of the Nyaya Prasthana part of Hinduism or Sanatana Dharma, to be studied, traditionally, after having studying the Bhagavadgita, Smriti Prasthana, and the Upanishads, Shruti Prasthanas. The sutras, aphorisms of the Brahma Sutras analyse different Upanishadic statement to understand their true import. The aim of the Brahma Sutras is to remove the ignorance that clouds one’s true nature and realise the ultimate reality, Brahman. The Brahma Sutras have been authored by Badarayana Vyasa, traditionally considered to be the same person who classified the Vedas, wrote the Puranas, the Mahabharata, and the Bhagavata.
In this series of lectures, Swami Narasimhananda, explains the Brahma Sutras and Adi Shankaracharya’s commentary on it with emphasis on their relevance in the present-day.
