Description

 

Preface

No apology is needed for this new edition of the Mrichchhakatika, as there is at present no suitable edition available which satisfies the needs of the University students, who have often to study this play for their examination. I have tried to make this book as comprehensive and useful as possible, inspite of the short time at my disposal, as the edition was undertaken at the urgent request of the publishers somewhat late in the beginning of this year. To the commentary of Prithvidhara, which is somewhat abrupt and meager in places, I have made considerable additions where I felt them to be necessary for the elucidation of the text. The relation of this play to Bhasa's Charudatta has been fully discussed in the Introduction, along with other usual matters. The prakrit passages, which prove a hindrance to the student in the class, have been printed below the text, only the Sanskrit rendering being given above; the utility of this contrivance has been established in actual use. I have fully availed myself of the labours of my predecessors in this field; but I must make special mention of the editions of Jivanand Vidyasagar and N.B. Godbole, and the scholarly translation of Dr. Ryder, as also his supplementary Notes issued in the Journal of the American Oriental Society. To all these best acknowledgements are due. But I have specially to thank a friend of mine who materially assisted me in the preparation of this edition and but for whose able help in every way the edition could not have been brought out in the short space of six months. Any suggestions or corrections & co, that might help to make this edition still more useful, will be most thankfully received.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
