This chapter presents central themes in Ved?nta philosophy prior to the eighth century CE by outlining the Ved?ntic teachings of three works: the Brahma-s?tra of B?dar?ya?a, the V?kyapad?ya of Bhart?hari, and the M????kya-k?rik? of Gau?ap?da. Understanding these three texts’ varied presentations of Ved?nta helps to underscore the diversity of Ved?ntic philosophical traditions, and shows how early Ved?ntic texts contained the seeds for later developments in Advaita and Bhed?bheda Ved?nta.
