Nyaya Siddhanta Dipah of Sasadhara

B.K. Dalai (Author)
Synopsis In Indian Philosophy a system of Philosophy? Do Indian s etc. are concerned about philosophical problems are some of the questions raised by some Philosophers. They branded Indian Philosophy or rather the literature of Indian Philosophy as religious literature based on faith and are dogmatic by nature having little to do with Philosophy as such. Here in the present work an occasion has been created to make available some sample of Indian Philosophical Literature in English for those who raised these types of objections. The present work is the English translation of Nyayasiddhantadipa with a critical study. Nyayasiddhantadipa is a Navya Nyaya text written by Sasadharacharya who held the glorious title of Mahamahopadhyaya (the great Teacher). The most famous and profound exponent of Navya Nyaya school of Philosophy was Gangesa Upadhyaya whose approximate time is 1300-1350 AD. Sasadhara flourished before Gangesa and preceded by almost a century and a half. For the time of Sasadhara, reference may be made to the learned introduction by B.K. Matilal to his critical edition of Nyayasiddhantadipa published by L.D. Institute of Indology, Ahmedabad, in 1976.
