In the concluding verse of “siddhAnta bindu”, Sri Madhusudana Saraswati says that:
na staumi taM vyAsaM ashESamarthaM
samyak na sUtrairapi yO babandha
taM shankaraM naumi surEshwaraM cha
The rough translation :
Sri Veda Vyasa didn’t frame the essence of the vEdAnta while writing brahmasUtrAs.
Hence, I would not extol him. But, so be it ! Acharya Sankara has blessed us with His
prasthAna-traya bhASya and Sureshwara blessed us with beautiful vArtikA.
So, I would extol Acharya Sankara and Sureshwara for bestowing us the essence of
vEdAnta in the form of advaita and vArtika and not vEda vyAsa.
Is it a nindA stuti directed towards vEda vyAsa that the brahmasUtrAs, infact,
point towards advaita siddhAnta ?
In what way we should under the above sloka?
