The idea of unity arises in the Vedas in the world of Indian philosophy. Though there is a natural worship, it is finally discovered that all the gods are the same power. In later times, all the deities were worshipped as Prajapati. The thought of unity continued to be immersed in the upanishads that finally arose in the Vedas. The lord was called Brahmma. In the period, Sankara has given importance to Advaita thought, in order to clarify the views found in the Upanishads. The Advaita theory speaks of the fact that it is a true object. That is The Brahman, and there is no defect in it. For this he speaks of vivatvatism, prativivavada, and avatarvatism. He is strongly presenting the idea that the world and life arise from the Brahmana. But the following principles of Vishitatvaita, Dvaita and Saiva saivism are the three truthful of the Lord, life and the world. But they too are willing to speak of the lord who is not less. In this way, we cansee that the advaita doctrine of Sankarar cannot be presented as a description of the doctrine by refusing or standing away. So all theories speak of a true object in the end, which is the object of the divine doctrine that is now widely worshipped throughout the world. The Vedas, Upanishads, Vedanta and Saiva siddhanta concepts are presented to the forefront of this article. The study is explained in a way that is compared with history to find out the truth of the study.
