It has been nearly 150 years since a bhashya, or commentary, on any of the Upanishads, Brahmasutras, and the Bhagavad Gita – collectively known as the prasthantrayi – has been written. Inspired by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj, Swami Bhadreshdasji is the latest in the lineage of acharyas to author bhashyas in Sanskrit on the prasthantrayi. The creation of the bhashyas by Swami Bhadreshdasji is considered by many scholars to be this century’s most important work in Vedanta philosophy.

Senior representatives of 27 prestigious universities from Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and other states gathered at the C.C.
