Thus Vedanta as a philosophy was from the beginning far more open than many other systems of orthodoxy. Therefore it will be less than fruitful to enquire which of the later commentaries most faithfully reflects the teaching of the Siitras, because these commentaries might well have come out of aupanifjada traditions that were not too faithfully reflected in the Siitras themselves.
