THE PRAMANAVARTTIKAM OF ACARYA DHARMAKIRTI
THE PRAMANAVARTTIKAM OF ACARYA DHARMAKIRTI
Description
About the Book:

Pramanavarttika is one, rather the principal one, of the seven celebrated works of the great Buddhist logician Dharmakirti (c. 650 C.E.). It consists of four chapters treating respectively of the validity of knowledge (Pramanasiddhi), perception (Pratyaksa), inference for oneself (Svarthanumdna) and inference for others (Pararthanumdna) according to the version followed in the present work, though in the traditional order Svarthanumana comes first. It is written in mnemonic verse and contains approximately 1500 stanzas.

The present volume includes Dharmakirti's basic text together with two commentaries: one, the auto-commentary of the author on the Svarthanumana-pariccheda only which is the first in the traditional order and third in the order followed here, and the other, the Pramanavarttikavrtti by Manorathanandin on all the four chapters. The incomplete auto-commentary supports the theory that the traditional order of the chapters was the original one and that death prevented the author from completing his commentary on the rest of the work.

Dharmakirti defines valid knowledge as the one which is not contradicted by experience and makes successful activity the test of truth. Perception, according to him, apprehends the own-characteristic (svalaksana) of things and inference the common characteristic (samanyalaksana). All inference are based on either a characteristic of identity (svabhava) or of causality (effect or karya, which leads to the knowledge of the cause). Inference for others is communicating the three characteristics of a valid middle term to another person and it is of three kinds: 'own nature', 'effect' and 'non-perception' (svabhava, karya and anupalabdhi).

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
