About the Book

The present work is an anthology of Kumarila Bhatta's works the Slokavarttika and the Tantravarttika which deal with such subjects as the nature of the Atman; the nature of the Dharma; the nature of the Sabda; the Self-Validity of the Veda; the Concept of Sphota; the nature of the Svarga; Generality; Individuality; Negation; Sunyata; Vijnanavada; Apohavada, etc. according to Mimamsa School. A reader can derive a fair knowledge of the tenets of the Mimamsakas on different subjects. Kumarila Bhatta was an expert exponent of the Purvamimarmsa. After Jaimini and Sabara, he was considered an authority on all aspects of Purvamimarhsa. He was the founder of a separate school named Bhatta which claimed a good following.

Besides, the author has supplied a short history of the Purvamimamsa in addition to details about Kumarila Bhatta, Sabara-svamin, Mandana Mira and other important writers of the Sastra, in his elaborate Introduction.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
