Mimamsa Nyaya Prakasa - Or Apadevi: A Treatise on the Mimansa System By Apadeva

Franklin Edgerton (Author)

The Mimansa-one of the six philosophy of Indian thought may be best described as a system of legal logic. It undertakes to lay down principles by which the laws of the Vedic rituals may be interpreted. For it regards the entire Veda as a code of law-ritual law. The present treatise Mimansa Nyaya Prakasa is fairly known text in India- professes to summarize the essential doctrines of the Mimansa system. It is, in fact, the most familiar introductory work to the system known in India. It is the favourite text used by the Hindu Pandits to initiate their pupils into the Mimansa. It surpasses in brevity and clarity the long-winded and fine-spun writings of Kumarila, which has been translated by Ganganatha Jha. It is therefore worthwhile to make it accessible to English knowling world. It has never been translated into any language. The present edition contains-an Introduction, Translation of the text edited from three different mss. and Indices which includes Glossarial Index of Sanskrit Words, Index of Quotations and Index of English Words.
