Introduction

A profound contribution to the understanding of the Vedic lore comes from Sayana who prepared comprehensive commentaries on all the Vedas including Brahmanas. His approach is ritualistic (adhiyajna) and has been admired for its depth and historical insight. There is no Vedic commentary which is as exhaustive and authentic as Sayana’s. A close and critical examination of his Bhumika (Prolegomenon) to Rgbhashya has been attempted in this volume.

The author is grateful to Sri Daivajna K.N. Somayaji, the chief Editor and Director of Kalpatharu Research Academy for having provided this opportunity, and to His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Bharathi Tirtha Mahaswamigal the chief patron of the Academy, the Jagadguru of Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri and Sri V.R. Gowrishankar, the chief Administrator of Sri Sharada Peetham and Chairman of Kalpatharu Research Academy, and to my friends Shri P.S. Venkatesh Babu and Shri B. Nagendra of Omkkar Offset Printers for their unfailing courtesy and co-operation during the printing of this volume.

Testimonials
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.
John, USA
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 !
