The Brahma Sutra Bhasya is an important but difficult Vedanta scripture. This is our most popular translation, and is regarded by some as indispensable for all students of Vedanta.
Includes word for word meaning of each aphorism under its Sanskrit text, followed by a running translation, with additional words in brackets for clarification.
Translation based primarily on the Ratnaprabha.
Takes perseverance to follow the arguments for and against but well worth it. Yes, one of the pillars of traditional Vedanta wisdom after the Upanishads and the Gita. Feel that it may be useful to read through all the 555 slokas first without the lengthy commentary and then go back ad read relevant commentary for any confusing slokas. Would be a great group practice to slowly study this traditional work.
