Mimamsa Sutras of Jaimini

One of the most important ancient Hindi philosophical writings is Jaimin's Purva Mimamsa Sutras. Indian philosophy is based on Mimamsa, the first of the six orthodox (Dars'anas) schools. The complete work is divided into twelve adhydyces (chapters) which are further divided into sixtypadas (sections). Besides presenting conceptual explanations for the performance of Vedic rituals, the literature explains the meaning and significance of these practises in order to help readers achieve liberation, or Moksha.

According to Jaimini's Mimamsa Sutra, all of reality is made up of material activity and the effects it produces. In the Karma-mimamsa school of thought, he and later adherents believe that there is no end to the cycle of rebirth, and that there is no freedom. Higher rebirth in the Deva realm is all that can be hoped for by Mimathsas in the endless circle of karma. It is because of this, they say, that the Vedas exist in the first place, that the primary task of a mature soul is to understand and carry out the sacrifice directives contained in the Vedas.
