Sambandhavārttika literally means ‘a brief commentary on the relation’.

Sureśvara[1] was one of the four chief disciples of Śaṅkara.[2] He has written two vārttikas or sub-commentaries on the bhāṣyas of Śaṅkara on the Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad and the Taittiriya Upaniṣad. The first one is one of the longest works spread over 11,151 verses in philosophy. The introductory part of it consisting of 1135 verses is known as Sambandhavārttika. It tries to establish the sambandha or relation between the Karmakāṇḍa portion and the Jñānakāṇḍa portion of the Veda which deals with rituals and knowledge respectively. The work is highly polemical.
