Three canonical texts of Vedanta theology
Prasthanatrayi (Sanskrit: ?, IAST: Prasth?natray?), literally, three sources (or axioms), refers to the three canonical texts of theology having epistemic authority, especially of the Vedanta schools. It consists of:
The Upanishads, known as Upadesha prasthana (injunctive texts), and the ?ruti prasth?na (the starting point or axiom of revelation), especially the Principal Upanishads.
The Brahma Sutras, known as Sutra prasthana or Nyaya prasthana or Yukti prasthana (logical text or axiom of logic)
The Bhagavad Gita, known as Sadhana prasthana (practical text), and the Smriti prasth?na (the starting point or axiom of remembered tradition)
