Questions on pramaaNa and anumaana  (for self-review)

      These questions are for those who are studying the Brahmasutra along with me on the internet.

      Try to answer the following questions without seeing the notes to check your understanding. After answering go back and study the notes to cross check your answers.

1. What are pramaa, bhramaa, and pramaaNa? What are the six pramaaNas?
2. What are the four factors needed in any anumaana pramaaNa?
3. Among the four factors what comes under pratyaksha and what under apratyaksha? Where does paksha belong?
4. What is a vyaapti vaakyam and what is its role in anumaana?
5. What does the statement 'hetu saadhyayoH saamaanaadi karaNyam' means?
6. How does that establish that scientific logic has no access to Brahmavidya?
7. Where exactly then laukika anumaana used in Brahmasutra?

      This ends the anumaana prakaraNam.
