General Analysis of the first suutra

      This suutra happens to be an introduction to vedaanta shaastram, or Brahmavidya. This is like upodghaata or anubandha or preface to the text, which is required for every shaastram. This suutra cannot be considered as out side the text nor inside the text - it is the connecting link to the outside and the inside like a door of a house. Hence it is called anubandhaH, a pre-appendix, attached to the shaastra as an integral part but not part of the shaastra, similar to the first chapter of Geeta. The shaastra begins from the second suutra only just as Geeta starts with the second chapter.
