    One could attain salvation by performing the Vedic sacrifices with all their rituals which needed the services of the priests. This was the belief of which school of Indian philosophy

    A)  Vaisheshika      

    B)  Mimamsa

    C)  Vedanta          

    D) Nyaya

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] The aim of Mimamsa is to give rules for the interpretation of the Vedas, the earliest scriptures of Hinduism, and to provide a philosophical justification for the observance of Vedic ritual. The goal of Mimamsa is to provide enlightenment on dharma, which in this school is understood as the set of ritual obligations and prerogatives that, if properly performed, maintains the harmony of the world and furthers the personal goals of the performer. Since dharma cannot be known through either perception or reasoning, one must depend on revelation in the Vedas, which are considered eternal, authorless, and absolutely infallible.
