About the Author

Alexander Pereverzev was born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1975 and after obtaining his first post-Graduate degree (M. A. In Indo-Aryan Philosophy from the St. Petersburg State University, 1998) went on to study Sanskrit in India. After completing M.A. in Sanskrit with specialization in Darsana from the Delhi University in 2003, he obtained his doctorate from the same University in 2010.

His Academic interests lie in the field of the classical orthodox Indian philosophy, particularly the metaphysics and epistemology of Advaita Vedanta of the post-Sankara period. He is especially interested in the interface between the mature Advaita and the other, mostly Vedic system of Indian thought.

Foreword
Alexander Pereverzev's treatise on the works of Suresvaracarya which the Asiatic Society is going to publish very shortly, contains an exegetical discussion on his master Sankaracarya's views. on Vedanta. Throughout his academic career Suresvara composed a good number of commentaries on his master's intellectual works with fresh interpretation, for the purpose of making the students of philosophy to understand Sankara's Vedantic views in a smooth and easy way. Our author has given an elaborate exposition of Sankara's philosophical judgements as has been highlighted by Suresvara. Pereverzev has pointed out as well as detailed the method of Suresvara's explaining Sankara's Vedantic ideas and has given therein foremost emphasis on the development of the concept of naiskarmya forwarded by Sankara in his commentary on Gita and elucidated by Suresvara in his work under consideration. Suresvara, a direct follower of Sankara. has extensively discussed in his Naiskarmyasiddhi the doctrine of jivanmukti and concludes that "the body should not necessarily fall immediately after realisation of the unity of Atman and Brahman and annihilation of ignorance." Our learned author, in the Preface of his present work, has aptly dwelt on the broad field of Sankara's philosophy and particularly on Suresvara's attempt in projecting himself as an efficient interpreter of the naiskarmya. To be well-acquainted with Suresvara's date and locality, his academic inheritance to Sankaracarya, and his refined scholarship, Alexander Pereverzev's well-documented book will certainly be helpful to all concerned. Truly, it may be said that the present book would be a valuable addition to the list of already published books of the Asiatic Society.

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.
