    Before Adi Sankaracarya it was Buddhism that was predominant in this country.

      Broadly speaking there are six schools of thought which follow the Vedic process more or less.
      They have been in existence for a long time.
      More than 5,000 years.
      Buddhism as such does not follow the Vedic process and even Jainism, both are not in the list of the six.
      You please search for the six yourself if you are interested.
      Adi Sankaracarya advented himself around 700 AD, his philosophy was a response to the Buddhist philosophy.
      I hope that helps!
      • AFTER 1000 YRS OF FLOURISM of buddhism in India,while the vedic culture was at its dusk and the tantrics,vamacharies were at their peak.There were countless sampradayas worshipping their demigods;some took yamraj as supreme, some took saraswati as supreme,some took lakshami as supreme,some took bhairav,etc,.......it was the time the great adi shankaracharaya by the grace of krishna come in this world and thru the coasts of kerela to peaks of kashmir,he travelled defeaing all the sampradayas and merging them in vedic culture and declaring buddha s avatar,the buddha was absorbed in vedic religionnn

      Buddism was preached during 600 BC but what about the time before that?

      What would've been the philosophy during the time of Mahabharat(5000 yrs ago) and after that?

        People(including brahmanas) were misusing vedic rituals, vedic scriptures and vedic principles to get material benefits, sense gratifications etc. There were lot of animal sacrifices, tantric rituals pseudo religious practices  which were justified as being vedic by bogus people. There was no one major type of worship but largely fragmented practices and lots and lots of demigod worship, like snake gods, shani, rahu etc

        All the above started sometime after departure of Mahajar Parikshit
