Descriptive Catalogue of Sanskrit Manuscript Indian Philosophy

Debarata Sensharma (Author)
Synopsis The Asiatic Society is the repository of a huge collection of manuscripts of which Sanskrit manuscripts predominate. Texts of almost all the branches of Sanskrit literature are preserved in the manuscripts which have been collected from different sources. Compilation and proper cataloguing of the manuscripts are urgently required for the convenience of scholars related to different fields of Indian studies. Extensive scholastic labour for the preparation of descriptive catalogues of Sanskrit mss. Was given in the Asiatic Society by a band reputed Indologists—Mm Haraprasad Sastri being the prominent amongst them. But since their leaving this world, no serious effort was spent for bringing out such volumes of Descriptive Catalogues for a long period. Now the Asiatic Society has employed several cataloguers for carrying out this difficult but very essential job. We have a good number of manuscripts on the Indian Philosophy, which were deposited by the Indian Museum to the Society. This collection includes all the six orthodox schools of Indian Philosophy. Thanks to Dr. Asesh Ranjan Misra, Senior Cataloguer in our Museum, for, he has compiled and prepared a descriptive catalogue of the mss. On Indian Philosophy, of Indian Museum Collection. Now the academic world will be able to find out whether there is any unpublished text of Indian Philosophy in this collection or whether there is any ms of a well-known text with a different version. I am also thankful to Pt. Jagadish Ch. Tarkatirtha and Pt. Madhusudan Vedantasastri who have helped Dr. Misra in various ways in preparing this catalogue. Thanks are due also to Prof. Debabrata Sen Sharma for his effective guidance to Dr. Misra and also for sincerely editing the press copy of the Catalogue.
