    Time to answer the puzzle #8108 as most answered it already.

    Answer: Brahma Sutra

    [​IMG]

    Image 1 - 555 Bar soap indicates 555 Aphoristic Verses
    Image 6 - Formula Car with #4 is a clue to indicate Formula for right living in 4 chapters
    Image 3 - Brahma
    Image 4 - Universe
    Image 5 - Paul Deussen who translated Brahma Sutra into Sanskrit

    555+4+Brahma will derive the answer in Google search. I am interested in learning from those who solved how they derive the answer.

    Ahem .... dare I confess that there was no derivation? :oops: I first thought "Hey, something-something Superstring Theory!!!" (Hubble pic of the Westerlund 2 Star Cluster, a ball of string, Brahma for Creation, "Super" power, "Formula-one" (4?!) for physics ... what could go wrong? :rolleyes:) I then spent some time trying to figure out who that distinguished 19th/early-20th-century bearded dude was - hmmm not Olber, not Hubble, not Doppler, not Planck, not Witten, not Susskind ... and then I said wait! This is Viswa! -- and looked around Brahma. :roflmao:

    By the way, I think you mean Deussen translated "from the Sanskrit" .

    Hmm just used 555+Brahma keywords to arrive at the answer. Rest of the images as confirmation clues.

    I wonder, 555 and the Creator (Brahma) as apposed to 666 and Satan? :sconf:

    I meant to say he translated into German.

    Thank you for sharing how you derived the answer that would help me set up good puzzles in future.

    Interesting observation!

    You are right. 555+Brahma brings the answer.
