Tandya Maha Brahmana with the Commentary of Sayana (Sanskrit Only in Two Volumes)
Tandya Maha Brahmana with the Commentary of Sayana (Sanskrit Only in Two Volumes)
Description
Preface

This, the first volume of the Tandya Maha Brahmana, com-prizes the first twelve Chapters (adhyaya) together with the commentary of Sayana Acharya, the Vedartha-Prakasa.

In carrying it through the press the principal object I kept in view was to give a correct text, and to restore an authentic reading of Sayana’s commentary The former proved by far the easier task. All the manuscripts that I consulted, had almost invariably the same reading, and where one differed from the others, its reading was, obviously, erroneous Letters, words, and mantras were found sometimes omitted and sometimes misplaced; but those inaccuracies did not occur in more than one manuscript at a time. Besides the manuscripts of the texts which I had at my disposal were generally correct, and seldom offered any remarkable divergence But the two manuscripts of the commentary which I could procure, contained many obvious mistakes and doubtful passages. One of them (C), hewn ever, had been revised and corrected with care. It is by carefully collating the two that I have attempted to produce an eclectic edition Occasionally I have added a few words and passages which, though they rested on the authority of a single manuscript, seemed, to be useful or explanatory.

The manuscripts which I hairs used for this edition, are as follow:

A Belonging to the Sanskrit College of Calcutta, It contains the text, and is a very old and valuable manuscript Dated Samvat 1660. B, Belonging to Pandit Rédhénétl1a Vidyaségara, in habitant of Bhatpara. The manuscript is valuable, but difficult to read, and contains only the text. It is also an old manuscript, dated Samvat 1672.

C. Belonging to the Sanskrit College of Calcutta. It contains both the text and the commentary. It is a revised and corrected codes, but still has many omissions. It bears no date.

D. Belonging to the Sanskrit College of Banares. It contains both the text and the commentary, and is a beautifully written manuscript, but has many mistakes. Dated Samvat 1919.

I obtained two other manuscripts from the Sanskrit College, of Calcutta. But they were so blotted, so inaccurate and sometimes so distorted that I could make little use of them.

I have retained the Sandhi as they stood in the manuscripts, but as regards the final nasals wh they were followed by consonants in the middle of words, they had been, for the sake of more expeditions writing, replaced by anusvaras in the manuscripts. Though the pronunciation remains unaffected by this style of writing, I have altered them in accordance with the rules of the Sanskrit Grammar.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.

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 !
Steven, USA
