It is the opinion of some Scholars that there have been nearly eighty Six ' kosas ' or vocabularies of Sans krit words written by various authors; but we have seen only twenty two, In Compiling this volume our author has employed " Namaparadyana " as his guide, and his derived material aid from the following books:- " Rajakosa," " Bhogindra" " Katyayana, " "Sahasanka " "Vachaspati," " Vyadi," " " Amalamangala, " " Subhanga " "Gopalita " and Bhagura,"

It claims a greater antiquity than any of the San-skrit vocabularies in use among the Students of the present day, such as "Amarakosa, " " Trikanada kosa " " medinikosa " and " Hemchandrkosa, "

There is ample evideuce in " Medinikosa " that its venerable and renowned author has taken much valuable help from the" Visvaprakasa " The constant refe-rence to the Visvaprakdea" whilst supporting his arguments in his famous commentaries on Sisupalba-dha" Raghuwamsa " and " Kumarasambhawa " by the great Malinatha will alone decide its value and place.

Believing that my labours would be of benifit to the modern Samscrit student, I have, with consider- able pains, edited the work to place it within the reach of all. I am indebted to Sir Isana Tarkaratna for lending me an ancient Copy, and I must mention here that the Scarcity of books rendered my work more difficult, I shall be obliged to those who shall point out any errors which they may find here, so as to enable me to Correct the same in my next edition.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
