Preface

The Vedantakalpalatika by Madhusudana Sarasvati is a well-known Sanskrit manual embracing all important topics relating to Vedanta philosophy. It is most probably the first work written by the author who all the same thinks highly of it, as is clear from the ambitious title bestowed upon it. The aim of the writer is to show how the non-Advaita philosophic doctrines fail to give a true evaluation of the ultimate Reality which must be admitted to be Nirvisesa and Nirdharmeka, if one is to do proper justice to both Sruti and Tarka. A detailed summary in English of the work is given in the Introduction, for the benefit of the reader. I have to thank Prof. R. N. Dandekar (Poona Univer- sity) for many useful suggestions. Thanks are also due to Prof'. Dr. Sulochana Nachane, M. A., ph. D. (Baroda University), Dr. Shilavati Oke, M. A., ph. D., Miss Vimal Thakar, M. A. and other Research workers of the Post-Graduate Department, Shri G. N. Shrigondekar, Librarian, and Shri S. N. Savadi of the. Manuscript Department for help in various ways.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
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.
