————— So especially in this age Bhagavad-gita is essence of Vedic literatures, and it is based on the Vedanta-sutra. It is stated in the Bhagavad-gita, hetumadbhir viniscita. Brahma-sutra padais caiva hetumadbhir viniscita. This Bhagavad-gita is based on Brahma-sutra. Brahma-sutra means Vedanta-sutra. Vedanta-sutra is very important. It is the summary of Vedic study, sutra. The janmady asya yatah [SB 1.1.1], this is a sutra, a synopsis. And you can explain very nicely from the Vedas. So there are small sutras, aphorism. From that aphorism you can expand. The Vedanta is the summary of all the Vedic literatures, anta, the supplement of the Vedic literatures. And Srimad-Bhagavatam is the explanation of Vedanta-sutra. Bhasyayam brahma-sutranam. In every chapter of Srimad-Bhagavatam you’ll find brahma-sutra-bhasya: “This is real commentary on the Brahma-sutra.” So one should read daily at least one, two hours. That is human life. ——————
