Hinduism - Who Was Kanada?


(2nd century BCE?) Philosopher known as the author of the Vaisheshika Sutras and the founder of the Vaisheshika philosophical school, one of Hindu philosophy's six schools.

Kanada's exact year of birth is unknown, however he is thought to have lived sometime after the third century B.C.E.

The Vaisheshika school was founded on the atomism philosophy, which states that there are just a few building elements that come together to make complex things.

Objects are also linked to their attributes via this cohesiveness.

The Vaisheshikas eventually embraced the Nyaya notion of God as the regulatory force underlying these atomic interactions when Vaisheshika joined with the Nyaya school, another of the six schools.
