Description

From the Jacket

This book was first published from Pune in 1961 in two volumes and received the highest national literary award of the Central Sahitya Academy in 1963. A revised enlarged single volume edition was brought out in 1981 by Motilal Banarsidass. The present is the second revised and enlarged edition. The passage of time and the coming to light of fresh information and materials have necessitated some amount of corrections, revisions and deletions which have been shifted to a separate place at the end as a matter of expediency for the present.

Eight more Appendices, some discussing standing issues like the alleged Christian influence on some of the spiritual order (Parampara), the maintainability of the report of Caitanya's visit to Udupi and the adverse remarks said to have been made by Caitanya on the place of Karma and Jnana in M's. system on the occasion, the influence of M's. GB on Jnanesvari etc. have been added. 

The reader is enabled to see how the genius of the founder has dived deep into the recesses of the Vedic and Upanisadic heritage ending with the Puranas and restored to posterity a robust system of Vedantic Theism in which the three eternal verities of the Supreme Being and the world of matter and souls receive their legitimate place of honour. 

About the Author

Born on 9th June, 1909 in a family of Asthana Vidvans of the former Cochin State of Kerala Dr. B.N.K. Sharma combines in himself a solid background of traditional Sastric learning with the highest attainments in modern University Education.

Vicissitudes of fortune have taken him from Tamil Nadu to far off Punjab and Karnataka and finally landed him in Maharashtra in 1953 where he was appointed as Professor and Head of the Department of Sanskrit in the newly founded Ruparel Collage of the Modern Education Society of Pune in 1953. After his retirement in 1969, Dr. Sharma was on a U.G.C. tenure of five years on a massive research project on the Brahmasutras and Their Principal Commentaries of the three leading schools of Vedanta. This standard research work was published by the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mumbai, between 1971-78 in three large volumes. Subsequently, a re-print edition of the same has bee brought out by Munshiram Manoharlal of Delhi (1986). This work has been hailed as an event in Vedantic Scholarship. Dr. Sharma's "Madhva's Teachings in His Own Words" sponsored by the Bhavans has now gone into its 4th edition.

Dr. Sharma is the recipient of the President of India's Award for Eminent Sanskrit Scholars in 1992 and the Government of Maharashtra's Award for Sanskrit (1993) and the prestigious Sri Vidyamanya Prasasti of the Purnaprajna Pratisthana in 1996. He has also been honored by the Late Periaval of the Kanchi Mutt and several Madhva Pithadhipatis.

Today with over a dozen publications of outstanding merit in lucid English, Dr. Sharma has verily established the highest record of the present century in his chose field with his latest English rendering of the Samanvayadhyaya of Jayatirtha's Nyayasudha.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
