Description

From the Preface of the Book:

In the following pages, an attempt is made to present the text of the Sri Sankaracarya's Bhasya on Brahma-Sutra-Catuhsutri in English version along with explanatory and critical notes. This portion of the Bhasya is rightly considered to give a gist of the entire Advaita Philosophy in a nutshell and hence it contains many knotty problems which are stumbling blocks to a beginner. I have attempted to elucidate all these points, but at the same time have avoided unnecessary discussions. Although, there exists a very excellent edition of catuhsurti by Dr. Kunhan Raja and Prof. S. Suryanarayana Sastri (and some passages have been borrowed from it verbatim). Yet, being restricted to the Bhamati only, it labours under she disadvantage that it is not easy for a beginner to follow. In present work, I have not only consulted the excellent translation of Dr. Thibat (S.B.E.), but have introduced the explanations found in the Anandagiri's Tika, Ratnaprabha and the commentaries contained in the excellent edition of Catuhsutri by M. M. Anantakrsna Sastri published at Calcutta. My aim has been to clear the difficult points for that purpose, help had be taken from whatever source it was available.

The explanation of the five Khyatis is taken from Dr. T.M.P. Mahadevan's book - The Philosophy of Advaita.

I have avoided giving quotation marks to the portions borrowed, since that would only bother the reader.

But I take this opportunity of acknowledging my debt specially to Messrs. Kunhan Raja, Suryanarayana Sastri and Mahadevan.

If this works proves useful to those for whom it is written, I shall considered myself amply repaid.

In the end it is but in the fitness of things that on my behalf and on behalf of the scholary world I should thank Dr. N. G. Sardesai who has published this book during these days when the cost of paper, printing, etc. is so great.
