– Which is the genuine commentary on Brahma-sutra? What is the main reason behind Sankaracharya’s hiding the Srimad Bhagavatam and the commentary of Baudhayana?

– Vedavyasa is the compiler of the Brahma-sutra (Vedanta-Sutra). After composing the sutras, he thought, "The purpose for which I composed these sutras, by extracting the meaning of the Upanisads, has not become successful. Unless I personally compose a commentary, the sutras will not be understood." When he was contemplating in this way, Narada Muni appeared and instructed him to compose a commentary. Thus, Vyasadeva wrote a commentary on Brahma-sutra called the Srimad Bhagavatam. These events are described in many Puranas.

Although Srimad-Bhagavata-mahapurana is the genuine commentary of Brahma-sutra, still by the order of his spiritual master, the great sage Baudhayana compiled a commentary on Brahma-sutra. Therefore, there were 2 commentaries on the Brahma-sutra available in the world.

To carry on with his work in following the order of the Lord, Sri Sankara Swami wrote a commentary on Brahma-sutra called Mayavada-bhasya and tried his best to conceal both the commentaries as explained above. (Sajjana-toshani 8/1)

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
