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.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
