Vedanta is a source of Jnana yoga, which pushes a person toward knowledge. The Upanishads, which are considered the essence of the Vedas and Vedic literature, are its primary source. The Upanishads are the final section of the Vedic literature, which is why it is known as Vedanta. Mantras and brahmins primarily describe rituals and worship, while the Upanishads discuss knowledge. 'Vedanta' literally means 'the end of the Vedas' (or essence).
The three most well-known branches of Vedanta are Advaita Vedanta, Vishisht Vedanta, and Dvaita. There are numerous ways to explain the ideas expressed in the three texts. As a result, many theories about Brahman, Jiva, and the world have been proposed.
Initially, the word 'Vedanta' was used for the Upanishads, but later the word 'Vedanta' was also used for the ideas which were developed on the basis of the principles of the Upanishads. Vedanta philosophy is also called Vahmasutra. In this there are four chapters and in each chapter there are four feet which are given in detail.
