Preface

The Indian Philosophers have discussed the sentence and its parts in various manners. The system of sentence analysis has been a subject matter of the Mimathsakas, Naiyayikas, Grammarians and Poeticians. Everybody accept iabda, artha and vrtti (the relationship or function) according to their own framework. The speaker uses those in languages for day-today behaviour. For that he uses the words in their proper context in order to express those objects. The listener listens the sentence and understands accordingly. The words convey meanings differently depending upon the situations. Those are the cases of usages which are widely accepted by all the philosophers those who deal with language analysis. For different types of usages various methods of the process of verbal understanding arises because they are used primarily and secondarily as per given circumstances.

The words have the power of deriving or expressing the meanings. Some words onvey certain meanings regularly in a particular manner and some change their status as per the usages. The speaker emitters or uses those words with an intention of signifying those intended meanings. Sometimes it is conveyed properly and some other time it does not convey. For that the Naiyayikas here laid down the conditions like - akanksa, yogyata, sannidhi and tatparya for smooth understanding of the sentences. The present book is an attempt regarding the Nyaya theory of language analysis.

The Naiyayikas accept vrtti in two fold manner. They are known as Sakti and laksand i.e. the relationships between a word and its meaning. Sakti is the primary relationship and laksand is the secondary one. The Naiyayikas again devide these two in to further categories. These operate on the basis of the usages as it occurs depending upon the given situations. They also provide why such categories do appear in the language and how it is used. 'These concepts are discussed in this book. The history and development of the relationship find a place in this book. When words are uttered the listener listens and he then gets those meanings through remembrance and then he relates those in formulating the sentence meaning. This is called siibdabodha in Nyaya Philosophy. So there is a process of verbal understanding involved in the whole method of connecting the word meaning for sentence meaning.This entire process of verbal understanding is also discussed here. The concept of the fourth type of Sakti namely yogarftdhi has attracted many views of the Mimathsakas and the Grammarians. Some say it is unnecessary and some say that it may be included under rudhi only. The Naiyayikas deal with such category of words and provide logical grounds for accepting it as one of the categories of Sakti. It is discussed in the text of the Nytiyasiddhantadipah of Sasadhara a pre-Gangega Navya-Naiyayika and also by Gangega himself.

Some of the above chapters in this book were published in different Indological Journals. The present attempt is to bring out them collectively in a book form with additions & interpretations so that the researchers in the field of language analysis will find it easy to relate the subject.

This also will help the western philosophers to have a comparative study in the subject. I must sincerely thank my teacher Prof. V.N. Jha, Ex-Director, CASS, University of Pune, Pune for his guidance and timely advice. My sincere thanks go to all my colleagues of the Department of Sanskrit, Utkal University for their co-operation.

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.
