Thanks BG.15, I will check it out. (Some one please show me the search button for the list.)
The list of models is infinite, and I did not list them in any order. In fact, depending on how
you want to classify, Atma vs Maya model can be put on top, and Atma/devas/Maya/Jivas be next.
Br.U.I.4.10 serves as Shruti for Atma/Maya model, and Atma/Maya model is higher model because
it eliminates the layer of devas.
I have a feeling Brahma Sutras & Bhashya draws its terminology from the entire vedic literature,
so it may be tough to understand. It is like Tai. pr a large portion of which makes sense only to
someone who has chanted all four vedas or some one who has depth in vyakaranaM.
Sutras are concentrated knowledge. I suggest beginners may work on Upanishat Bhashyas,
learning a bit of pranayama here and there hinted in there. That should give a good handle
on the subject, after which one can branch out to one's area of competence. For people like
me who did not even learn Rama shabdam reading originals is a Himalayan task.
