Hinduism - Who Was Jaimini?


 (4th c. B.C.E.?) The Mimamsa Sutras, the core writings of the Purva Mimamsa school, one of India's six schools of thought, are typically attributed to him.

The Mimamsa school is particularly concerned with dharma ("righteous deed") investigation and pursuit.

The Mimamsa thought that the Vedas, the earliest Hindu religious writings, supplied all required teachings in their pursuit of dharma.

Given these two assumptions, much of Mimamsa thinking is dedicated to the concepts and techniques of textual interpretation that they utilized to decipher the instructions they believed the Vedas contained.
