Vedanta Darshanam

Hinduism accepts many different philosophies and schools of thought, irrespective of whether they accept Vedas or not. Traditionally, Hindu thinking broadly divides these systems — called darshans — into those that accept Vedas (astikas), and those that do not (nastikas). Among the astika darshanas, three of the most common ones are advaita, vishistadvaita and dvaita.
