Brahma Sutras
Vedanta, a brilliantly shining star amongst the galaxy of Vedic Literature, is an integral part of the six Darshan Shastras or the Upangas of the Veda, namely Nyaya, Vaisheshik, Sankhya, Yoga, Karma Mimamsa, and Vedanta. Vedanta deals with the knowledge and experience of the essence of totality of life and a systematic path to the highest evolution possible for mankind.   Vedanta, the Vedic cognition by Vyasa, brings to light Brahman as the ultimate source, course and goal of life and Moksha or enlightenment as the practical path to the highest pinnacle of human evolution. Brahma Sutra of Vyasa starts with the quest of total knowledge of life with the words ‘Athato Brahma Jigyasa’ and finds its fulfillment in the Mahavakyas of the Vedas, such as ‘Aham Brahmasmi’, ‘Tat Tvam Asi’, ‘Ayam Atma Brahm’ and ‘Sarvam Khalu Idam Brahm’, and in the aphorisms of the Bhagavad Gita such as ‘Esha Brahmi Sthitih.’ Vedanta deals with the knowledge and experience of the ultimate truth of life – Brahman, knowing which nothing more remains to be known. --From: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Insight into Vedanta, the Ultimate Knowledge of Life, and Its Application to Bring World Peace – from Philosophy to Science by Lothar Pirc, Br. Girish Momaya, & Susan Brown, Conference: Twentieth International Congress of Vedanta, Volume: (20Vedanta)
