      After the upodghaata or introductory suutra, which indirectly deals with the anubandha chatushhTayam or the four-fold requirements, Vyasacharya begins the shaastram with the second sutra. The second suutra belongs to second adhikaraNam. This adhikaraNam is known as the janmaadi adhikaraNam because the suutra begins with the word janmaadi. This adhikaraNam also has only one suutra. The suutra is 'janmaadyasya yataH'.

      We will follow as usual the three-stepped approach; first the general analysis, then specific word by word analysis and then the conclusion.
