From the Preface of the Book:

In the following pages, an attempt is made to present the text of the Sri Sankaracarya's Bhasya on Brahma-Sutra-Catuhsutri in English version along with explanatory and critical notes. This portion of the Bhasya is rightly considered to give a gist of the entire Advaita Philosophy in a nutshell and hence it contains many knotty problems which are stumbling blocks to a beginner. I have attempted to elucidate all these points, but at the same time have avoided unnecessary discussions. Although, there exists a very excellent edition of catuhsurti by Dr. Kunhan Raja and Prof. S. Suryanarayana Sastri (and some passages have been borrowed from it verbatim). Yet, being restricted to the Bhamati only, it labours under she disadvantage that it is not easy for a beginner to follow. In present work, I have not only consulted the excellent translation of Dr. Thibat (S.B.E.), but have introduced the explanations found in the Anandagiri's Tika, Ratnaprabha and the commentaries contained in the excellent edition of Catuhsutri by M. M. Anantakrsna Sastri published at Calcutta. My aim has been to clear the difficult points for that purpose, help had be taken from whatever source it was available.

The explanation of the five Khyatis is taken from Dr. T.M.P. Mahadevan's book - The Philosophy of Advaita.

I have avoided giving quotation marks to the portions borrowed, since that would only bother the reader.

But I take this opportunity of acknowledging my debt specially to Messrs. Kunhan Raja, Suryanarayana Sastri and Mahadevan.

If this works proves useful to those for whom it is written, I shall considered myself amply repaid.

In the end it is but in the fitness of things that on my behalf and on behalf of the scholary world I should thank Dr. N. G. Sardesai who has published this book during these days when the cost of paper, printing, etc. is so great.

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.
