In the Introduction to the first volume of the translation of the 'Vedanta-Sutras with Sankara's Commentary' (vol. xxxiv of this Series) I have dwelt at some length on the interest which Ramanuga's Commentary may claim --
MAY my mind be filled with devotion towards the highest Brahman, the abode of Lakshmi who is luminously revealed in the Upanishads ....
The first adhyaya has established the truth that what the Vedanta-texts teach is a Supreme Brahman, which is something different as well from non-sentient matter known ....
That the Vedanta-texts establish as the proper object of meditation, on the part of all men desirous of Release, the highest Brahman, which is the only cause ....
The third adhyaya was concerned with the consideration of meditation, together with its means.
amsa, part, 88, 191, 559, 619 sq.
akshara, the Imperishable, 125, 287, 309, 403, 653
akhyati, the view that the attribute of one thing appears as that of another, 118.
