Nyayamanjari of Sri Jayanta Bhatta (In 3 Parts)

Cakradhara (Author) Gaurinath Sastri (Editor)
Synopsis The Nyayamanjari of Jayantabhatta is an epoch-making work on Indian logic. The book was first published in the Vizianagram Sanskrit Series, Varanasi in 1895 under the editorship of MM Gangadhara Shastri of hollowed memory. The introduction contains many useful points which throw much light on the author and the work. Decades after the book was re-edited by Pandit Surya Narayana Shukla in the Chowkhamba Sanskrit Series, Varanasi. It was also reprinted in the same series in 1971. It is, however, unfortunate that all these editions suffered from misprints which at times create difficulties for readers in determining the correctness of the abstruse text. It has been, however, a matter of great satisfaction that the only available commentary, ‘Granthibhanga’, by Cakradhara edited by Nagin J. Shah has been published by L.D. Institute of Indology, Ahmedabad in 1972. The importance of this commentary lies in this that the commentator has taken special care is not only explaining the knotty points but also in identifying the writers not mentioned by name in the original text, besides giving a few important historical data. It is, therefore, in the fitness of things that we have proposed to bring out this edition of Nyayamanjari with the commentary ‘Granthibhanga’ which will enable our readers to study the work more thoroughly and conveniently than before as both the text and the commentary are being made available to them in this edition. The plan of this edition is as follows: This is the first volume of the text containing the first four Ahnikas. The rest, i.e., Ahnikas V-XII, will be published in two more volumes. In this beginning, in a separate section, a summary in Sanskrit of all the important issues discussed in the body of the text. Added three sections in the end dealing with (i) an index of proper names, (ii) an index showing he identification of the quotations and (iii) an index containing the different literary expressions bearing eloquent testimony to the humorous style in which the author revels in referring to rival philosophers.
