Description

Foreword

I have great pleasure in writing a Foreword to this critical edition of Rudrabhatta's Rasakalika, together with an English translation and studies, prepared by Dr. Kalpakam Ramaswami (now Mrs. Kalpakam Sankaranarayanan) under my direction and approved by the Madras University for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 1972. I have a special attachment to it, since it was the first Ph. D. thesis prepared under my guidance.

Rudrabhatta's Rasakalika occupies an important place in Indian aesthetic studies, though it has not yet received due recognition from scholars. The present critical edition is also its editio princeps. The Rasakalika was used as a source book by vidyanatha for his Prataparudriya (quoting 44 passages from the Rasakalika). Mallinatha has quoted passages from it as authority in many places. Vasudeva quotes 6 verses from it in his commentary on Rajasekhara's Karpurmanjari. In the Rasaratna-kara of Salva, a sixteenth century Kannada work on Rasa, Rudrabhatta's Rasakalika is mentioned as a source book.

Rudrabhatta gives an excellent exposition of the theory of Rasa and the various problems connected with it, mainly following Dhananjaya's Dasarupaka and its commentary by Dhanika, Bhoja's Sarasvati-kanthabharana and Rudratalankara. Among his original contributions is the fourfold classification of Uddipanavibhava-the qualities of the hero or the heroine, the graceful actions like hela, kilikincita etc. their decorations and accidental factors. He describes in detail the types of heros and heroines, the srrigaranayika-s, vyabhicari-bhava-s, sancari-bhava-s the twelve stages in the development of love, etc. The problem of how tragic scenes give aesthetic pleasure is also discussed.

The critical edition is based on the four available manuscripts, and the external testimonia. Dr. Kalpakam has fixed the date of the work as the beginning of the 13th century A.D., proved that Vidyanatha and Mallinatha are influenced by the Rasakalika, and that the text we have is complete. A faithful English translation has been added. The sources of most of the illustrative verses have been traced. It is hoped that this critical edition of an important text will be welcomed by students of Indian aesthetics and literary criticism.

The Vasanta Press deserve warm appreciation for the excellent printing.

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
