Prof. Vidhusekhara Bhattacharya published his edition of Gauda-padakarikas (or Agamaastra) some years ago. A close perusal of that edition clearly showed that Prof. Bhattacharya had allowed himself to be carried a little too far by his leanings towards Buddhism, and hence some of his interpretations appeared clearly to be biased and forced. While teaching Gau4apadakarika to the M. A. students, I had occasion to criticise Prof. Bhattacharya’s interpretations, and I felt that it would be better to present my views in a book—form, before a larger circle of readers so that a balanced view of Gaudapada’s philosophy could be taken. The present edition has been brought forth with such a back—ground.
