Śrutaprakaśikā literally means ‘exposition of what is heard’.

Bādarāyaṇa’s Vedāntasutras is a basic work of Vedānta philosophy on which many ācāryas[1] have written learned commentaries. Rāmānuja’s[2] commentary on it is well-known as Sribhāsya. The earliest and the most authoritative sub-commentary on it is the Śruta-prakāśikā of Sudarśanasuri.[3] He was a disciple of Vātsya Varadācārya[4] who was also called Nadādur Ammāl.

When Vātsya Varadācārya used to deliver enlightening discourses on the Sribhāsya of Rāmānuja, Sudarśanasuri used to listen attentively and make notes. Based on that, he composed his detailed sub-commentary. He named it as Śruta-prakāśikā because it expounded or brought to light what he had heard was śruta. Being a detailed and unambiguous exposition it is regarded highly in Viśiṣṭādvaita circles.
