Description
Preface

The Sarvadarsanasangraha is a work by Madhavacharya, the well-known scholiast of the Vedas. It contains short notices of all the systems of Indian Philosophy, and as such is very valuable. It is natural to suppose that every Indian Sanskrit scholar would have possessed a copy of a treatise of so much importance. But it is somewhat singular that manuscripts of the work are very rare, and that the great majority of the learned of this country are probably not even aware of its existence. If not printed now, the Sarvadarsanasangraha would, in all probability, share the common fate of many other valuable relics of Sanskrit learning Asiatic Society of Bengal to edit the work for them if they would undertake to print it. My offer was kindly accepted, and the work, under their auspices, is printed and published.

When I first undertook to edit the work, I was under the impression that the task would be an easy one. There were two manuscripts in Calcutta, one in the Library of the Sanskrit college, and the other in that of the Asiatic Society. On first reading the book I thought that the former manuscript was sufficiently correct. But scrutinizing it with the care necessary for publication, I collected it with the copy in the Society's Library and found that without the aid of more manuscripts, the readings in several passages in which the two manuscripts differ, could not be reconciled. No other manuscripts were however procurable in Bengal; but by good fortune I procured three manuscripts from Benares. These were of essential service to me, and it was only after carefully collating them with the texts in Calcutta that I have been able to edit the work.

I feel it my duty here to express my great obligations to Mr. Edward Hall, late of the Benares Collage, through whose kind executions the Benares manuscript were received. Without his timely aid it would have been impossible for me to execute the task I had undertaken with the necessary requisite. My obligations are also due to Professors Jaynarayana Tarkapanchanana and Taranatha Tarkavachaspati of the Sanskrit College for the material assistance that they afforded to me in the undertaking.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Carl, UK.
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.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
