Vacaspativaibhaoam is a modest tribute to the dynamic
persona of Professor Vachaspati Upadhyaya whose
chequered career spans more than four decades. In this
volume, an earnest endeavour is made to collect and
recollect his significant contribution to the academic
world, both as a scholar as well as an administrator.
The first part of this volume carries benign blessings of
saints and scholars for the unbound showering of
divine grace upon Professor Upadhyaya. Many
messages by the dignitaries and copious compliments
from well-wishers and friends of Professor Upadhyaya
convey his unmitigated commitment to the core human
values cherished in his heart.
The second section of the volume comprises rich
reminiscences penned by a vast majority of his
colleagues and students from all over the country.
These memoirs, in the form of personal reflections, are
richly expressed through the medium of poetry and
prose, and reveal the various aspects of the multifaceted
personality of Professor Vachaspati Upadhyaya.
More than ninety research papers included in the
principal part of the volume are not limited to the
narrow compartmentalization of a particular subject
but cover different domains of Indian intellectual
tradition. Authored by a galaxy of scholars, Indian and
foreign, these articles not only highlight the new
ventures in cross-disciplinary studies, but also
emphasize their basic concern with contemporary
challenges facing humanity. The readers will relish that
contributors to the volume have effectively reflected
upon the dialectical depth and thematic width of Indian
philosophy, religion and culture enshrined in Sanskrit
In fine, the volume in hand promises to provide
meaningful material for thought in the fields of Sanskrit
and Indological Studies.
