The present book dealing with the Mahabhasyapradipoddyota of Nagesa is divided into three parts. Part I 'General' aims at introducing the author as well as his work and points out the characteristics of the work. Part II 'Analytical examination' examines the Uddyota from four points of view, namely elucidation of Mahabhasya, elucidation of Pradipa, citations of the views of others and criticism of Kaiyata by Nagesa. Part III 'Observations' is devoted to the exposition of the view's of Nage4abhatta on certain important topics referred to in the course of the work.
