About the Book

The Tarakabhasa of Kesava Misra is an elementary treatise on the Nyaya System. It explains, in brief the main tenets peculiar to that system, alongwith certain other details that system subsequently borrowed from the sister system of the Vaisesikas. The work has been chosen for translation because of its freedom from the intricate polemics that make many Nyaya works repellent to the ordinary students. This translation will serve as an introduction to the study of the more abstruse words that are being translated:-viz, the Bhasys of Vatsyayana and the Vartika of Udyotakara-which constitute the chief and original authority for the Nyaya.

The writer of this work is believed to have lived between 1344 abd 14919A. C. in Mithila (North Bihar).

The text used is the reprint from the Pandit, Published by the Medical Hall Press. Benares.
