PREFACE

No a pology is needed for this new edition of the Mrichchhakatika, as there is at present no suitable edition available which satisfies the needs of the University students, who have often to study this play for their examination, I have tried to make this book as comprehensive and useful as possible, inspite of the short time at my disposal, as the edition was undertaken at the urgent request of the publishers somewhat late in the beginning of this year. To the commentary of Prithvidhnra, which is somewhat abrupt and meagre in places, I have made considerable additions where I felt them to he necessary for the elucidation of the text. The relation of this play to Bhasa’s Charudatta has been fully discussed in the Introduction, along with other usual matters. The Prakrit passages, which prove a hindrance to the student in the class, have been printed below the text, as in my other editions of Sanskrit plays, along with the text, only the Sanskrit rendering being given above; the utility of this contrivance has been established in actual use. I have fully availed myself of the labours of my predecessors in this field; but I must make special mention of the editions of Jivanand Vidyasagar and N. B. Godbole, and the scholarly translation of Dr Ryder, as also his supplementary Notes issued in the Journal of the American oriental Society. To all these my best acknowledgements am due. But I have specially to thank a friend of mine who materi ally assisted me in the preparation of this edition and but for whose able help in every way the edition could not have been brought out in the short space of six months. Any suggestions or corrections, &e., that might help to make this edition still more useful, will be most thankfully received.

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.
