Preface

We are privileged to present before the academic world the reprint of the twelve volumes of the famous "The Princess of Wales Sarasvati Bhavana Studies" published between the years 1922 and 1945 under the authority of the Government of the United Provinces with Dr. Ganganatha Jha as its first editor. We are thankful to the University Grants Commission for releasing adequate funds for the publication.

The present editor takes upon himself the responsibility of reprinting the volumes according to a principle convenient and commendable to readers by putting together in one separate book the several articles from the pen of a single writer published serially in successive volumes on the subject. To mention, Mm. Ganganatha Jha's 'Studies in Hindu Law and Mm. Gopinatha Kaviraja's 'The History and Bibliography of Nyaya Vaisesika Literature, which appeared in Vols. I-IV and VI, and Vols. III-V and VII respectively are printed in two separate books. The foot-notes in the original volumes are collected here at the end the text mentioning their numbers serially And, indices which will enable scholars to consult those portions of the text where they occur, have been inserted.

Mm. Gopinatha Kaviraja's articles in this volume (Reprint Series No. 3) contain 24 articles of which the last one is his masterly English translation and annotation on the first cluster of Udayana's Nayaya-kusumanjali.

It is difficult for me to attempt an assessment on the quality and usefulness of the articles that come from the pen of a savant of his stature and eminence. His was a versatile genius who was destined to revel in any branch of Indian and European philosophy. And we, who had the opportunity to sit at his feet for decades could only feel how he could express himself with ease and precision. It seemed that his was not an intellectual make up; in him intellect and intuition had a rare fusion.

I feel very happy to be associated with this University once again to see this important work printed in a book-form. The task of editing is indeed very difficult. And in this context I must appreciate the invaluable service rendered by our Librarian, Shri Lakshmi Narayan Tiwari in seeing the book through the press and preparing the indices. Services of my Personal Assistant, Shri Saligram Yadav, in this regard are thankfully acknowledged.
