Pancatantra of Visnusarman
Pancatantra of Visnusarman
Description
Extract From The Preface to The First Edition
The present edition is meant for such of the students as have not the means of securing private assistance….A full English translation has been given of all difficult verses. But in the case of easier ones, the translations stops after giving a rendering of the unintelligible parts only. The same has been done with regard to the difficult prose passages. Thus there is scope left for the boys to exercise their own brain power. A short commentary of explaining all difficult compounds and giving the prose order of difficult verses has bee added. In the case of intricate passages I have added, sometimes a word, at others, a sentence or two to make the same clear. The exigencies of space, however, did not permit me to add full explanations. But what is given is sufficient to make the text intelligible to a student of ordinary understanding. A special feature of the present additional verses found in two MSS consulted by me.

The student will observe that the reflections and citations which are so profusely interspersed in the first three Tantras become much less copious in the last two-a circumstance which, however, much adds to the interest, if not to the utility, of the compilation.

Back of The Book
The Pancatantra is a famous literary work of Visnusarman, the Court-Pandit of King Amarasakti of Mahilaropya in the south. Originally it was intended by the author to educate the princes of his patron in the science of politics and practical life. The work comprises five Tantras, consisting of stories interspersed with verses which are full of political maxims applicable to exigencies of life. The present edition contains, besides the text, copious notes and literal translation in English. A short Sanskrit Commentary, explaining difficult compounds and grammatical formation of words has also been added. The edition contains some additional verses and different readings found in some manuscripts. Any student who has acquired a preliminary knowledge of Sanskrit grammar will understand the text with the help of notes and translation without difficulty.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
