Prof. Sri Pullela Sriramachandrudu(Ed);

1983; Size:1/8 Demy; pp. xviii+128+xxiv; Rs.50/-  S.A.Series No.:25

 

The swara-vidhi or Accentuation of Krishna-Yajurveda begins with the words ‘yat’ and ‘hi’. Therefore this work is named as ‘Yohibhashya’. Though the press copy of this work Kriyaswaralakshna or Yohibhashya on vedic accent was ready for publication by the end of the year 1956 and its publication was announced by Sri Burgula Ramakrishna Rao, the then Chief Minister of Hyderabad and the president of Sanskrit Academy, it could not see the light of the day, perhaps because of changes of fixing the priorities. The former director of SanskritAcademy Sri Pullela Sriramachandrudu brought this work into light in the year 1983.

This edition is based upon the following manuscripts:

 

  1. K. – Base Manuscript of O.U.
  2. I.O. – Indian Office Manuscript
  3. M-I – Madras Manuscript
  4. M-II          -do-
  5. M-III        -do-

  2. My.III                              -do-
  3. V.           Manuscript from Visveswarananda Vedic

The introduction, critical notes and appendices are highly useful to vedic researchers.

 

 

AYURVEDA

 

3.AYURVEDABDISARAH (Part-I)

Prof. Sri. P. Sriramachandrudu (Ed)

1989;Size:Demy;pp.640; Rs.100/- ; S.A.Series No. :41

 

The Ayurvedabdhisara, as its name indicates, contains the essence of the Ayurveda Sastra. It contains 4433 verses and commentary here and there. It deals with the causes of various diseases their symptoms, the preventive methods and remedial medicines. This work of an unknown author takes material from many earlier works on Ayurveda and treats each disease under a different heading and the treatment of each topic is exhaustive.

 

This edition is based on a single paper manuscript preserved in the library of the Osmania University. It contains 617 folios of the size of 27x14cms with 9 lines

on each page. From what is found at the end of the manuscript, it was completed by one Tripati Mahasukha Prasad in 1796 A.D. This book is published in two volumes. This book is very useful for the reseachers and students of Ayurveda.

 

 

4.Ayurvedabdisara (Part-II)

Prof. M. Gopal Reddy (Ed)

1991;Size:Demy;pp.ii+1322; Rs.125/- S.A.Series No. : 45

 

The first volume of Ayurvedabdhisara was published in 1989. This bulky work is the second volume, containing 5476 verses,  in different metres like Upajati, Vasantatilaka, Dodhaka, Pruthvi, Shardula-vikridita, Sragdhara in addition to Anushtup. It deals with various diseases, their symptoms diagnosis and treatment as well as the preparation of the medicine. It also deals with the subject like ‘Nadi-Pariksha’, ‘Mutra-pariksha’ to arrive at the correct nature of the disease. Very interestingly this work deals with the life span of a man, the necessity of taking medicine, the qualities of a good vaidya. While discussing the need for a vaidya it poses the question ‘If a man is destined to live long, why depend on medicine?’, and also supplies the answer. A man, destined to live long, is of course bound to live that long, but with all types of physical weaknesses. The purpose of medicine is to see that he not only lives his full life but lives without diseases. This work is useful to the students as also to the practitioners of Ayurveda.

 

  VEDANGAS  - SIKSA

It is hoped, that this Siksha will be welcomed by the vedic scholars.

Prof. Sri P. Ramachandrudu(Ed);

1987;Size:Royal Octova; pp.iii+491;Rs.90/- S.A.Series No. : 36

 

Paribhashendushekara, considered to be Nagasa’s last work on Vyakarana (written at the end of the first decade of the 18th Century) had become very popular through out the length and breadth of the country. The peculiar style of Nagesa, who condenses the wealth of thought in small sentences, has naturally become responsible for the appearance of more than thirty commentaries written by scholars  from all parts of the country. The commentary, Vakyarthachandrika of Harisastri, on Paribhashendushekara  is a scholarly work, as scholarly as the work of Nagesa. It was exactly one hundred years ago i.e., in 1887 that this work was first published at the instance of Sri Ananda Gajapati, the then Maharaja of Vizayanagaram, by Kolluru Kama Sastri, one of the students of Harisastri. The Sanskrit Academy published this commentary for the second time. It is hoped that this will be welcomed by the students and scholars of advanced works of Vyakarana.

Prakruta Shabda-pradipika was authored by Narasimha sastry, a  disciple of Tatarya. The author has dealt with six Prakruts, namely-prakruta, Sauraseni, Magadhi, Paisachi, Chulika Paisachi and Apabhramsa. He has given rules of formation of these Praktrits. Since he is of the opinion that Prakrits have sprang up from Sanskrit, he has given the Sanskrit forms of the Prakrit nouns and verbs. For this he has written Sutras on the lines of Panini’s Ashtadhyayi. His main purpose is to give the forms of the nouns and verbs in Prakrit, in all the cases, showing the equivalent Sanskrit words. In some cases he has given the forms of nouns in one case only, since the forms in the rest of the cases can be known easily. Likewise Avyayas and Taddhita words are also dealt with. This book, which is older than 100 years  was printed in Telugu script. Academy brought out this book in Nagari script. This book was edited by Prof. Sri M. Gopal Reddy, Director, and  Sri V. Srinivasa Sarma, Editor, S.A. It is hoped that this work will enable the scholars, who are not conservant with Telugu script, to appreciate the usefulness of this work.

19.JNANACHATURVIMSI

By Narachandropadhyaya

Prof. Sri Aryendra Sarma(Ed);

1956; Size:Royal; pp.10+8; Rs. 20/- ; S.A. Series No.: 01

 

The present work has been edited on the basis of a single manuscript contained in the collection of the O.U.Library. This paper manuscript consists of a single folio, containing both the text and the commentary. The manuscript must have been written around 1250 A.D. The name of commentator is not known. The script of the text is Jaina Devanagari.

 

The text consists of 24 verses. The first verse is introductory, the last but one praises Astrology and the last one speaks of the author and his gurus. The remaining twenty one verses deal with sixteen different topics, the first four and the last one are related to Astronomical calculations and the rest to Astrology. The topics are specified after the verses dealing with them.

 

Those devoted to Astronomical-Astrological studies will find here quite a few data of historical interest, since the work happens to be not only rare and unpublished but also fairly old as far as astrological literature in Sanskrit is concerned. The treatise is brief, but precise, and contains material which appears to have been drawn upon by later writers on the subject. Its value is to be gauged from this point of view, rather than from an enquiry into its intrinsic merit, which certainly is not negligible.

Prof. K. Kamala(Ed);

2006;Size:Demy;pp.22;Rs. 15/-; S.A.Series No. : 59

 

Astrology is known as phalita bhaga of Jyautisha. The calculations given in panchangas help astrologers in making these predictions. Astrology acts as a lighthouse in directing the path and averting evil consequences. Jyautisha is therefore called the eye of veda among its six angas or limbs. Indians have been following the predictions of Panchanga for thousands of years with an implicit faith. Sri madhura Krishnamurty Sastry Garu is a renowned astronomer serving the society through his knowledge of Jyotisha. This scholar has written a booklet called ‘Panchangala Pramanikata’ in Telugu published by Vishwa Vijnana Parishat, Rajahmundry. This book proves the scientific approach of scholars in preparing a panchanga and predicting the benefic and malefic effects of the movements of the Sun, the Moon, the stars and Planets on the living beings. Sanskrit Academy published an English translation  of this book of Sri Madhura Krishnamurty Sastry Garu. Prof. K. Kamala, Director, S.A. edited this book, with the help of Smt. Sandhya lakshmi, a research scholar, Dept. of Jyautisha, P.S. Telugu University, Hyderabad, Dr. V. Srinivasa Sarma, Editor, and Sri K.V. Suryaprakash, Research Assistant, S.A.

India has made two great and enduring contributions to the world, the language Sanskrit and the exerciseYoga. For, millennia, these two have mutually enhanced and enriched one another to elevate human consciousness to the sublime. Within the great spiritual traditions of India,

Sanskrit could be seen as the vehicle and yoga as the driver.

Patanjali has been considered the master of the Yoga Technique, who realized the relation between matter and psyche and presented his wonderful analysis in the Yogasutras.   Dr. Penna Madhusudan presents his understanding of the Yoga sutras in sloka form. In this hand-book, he intends to elucidate the cardinal doctrines of the yoga system with the help of authentic texts on yoga like vaisardi of Vachaspati Misra, Yoga Vartika of Vijanana Bhikshu and Yogasiddhanta chandrika of Narayana Tirtha. As this text facilitates memorization, it is a must read book for the students of Yoga philosophy.

Manishapanchakam of Adi-Shankara consists of only five verses. Sri Sadasivendra Yogi has written a commentary to these five verses to reveal the tenets of Advaita Vedanta in a scientific way. The commentary to the first verse is elaborate. Manishpanchaka Bhashya is written in a dignified and rather tough style. The commentator adopts the methodology of Navya-Nyaya in some places to establish Advaita. The technical terms of logic like Pakshata etc. are used in this text. Therefore one who studied Advaita and Nyaya can alone understand this text. A lay person finds this text difficult to understand. Therefore Dr. Penna Madhusudan, Head Dept. of Philosophy, Kavikulaguru Kalidasa University, Ramtek, Maharashtra has translated this commentary into English.This text was edited by Prof. K. Kamala and Dr. V. Srinivasa Sarma, who were assisted by Sri K.V. Surya Prakash, Research Assistant, S.A. This text is useful for the student of Advaita philosophy.

This is a poem of 102 verses in Sardulavikridita metre. It is categorized as a satire in Sanskrit literature. The author of this text Sri Vanchanatha enjoyed the patronage of the king Ekoji. In due course of time his son Pratapa Singh started ruling the kingdom. The king was misguided by the selfish councilors. To preach his king Pratapa Singh the poet and wise councilor Vanchanatha penned this satire.

 

Generally a buffalo is considered to be an insignificant animal. A mean king, who is like a buffalo is nayaka of this satire. The poet criticizes the defects and evil acts of the wicked councilors and calamities faced by the people of that kingdom. This poem can be considered as a rare work in Sanskrit literature. This book is published along with the commentary written by the author’s great grand son, Sri Vanchanatha. The introduction written by the erudite scholar Prof. Sri P.

Sri Vattipalli Narakanthirava Sastri was the descendant of a well-known family of great scholars of Vattipalli, a small village in the Kurnool District of Andhra Pradesh. He was one of the greatest scholars of his time, in Nyaya, Vedanta and Alankara Sastra and also a poet of great repute.

 

In this work, Sri Sastri upheld Mammata’s definition of Kavya meeting all the objections raised by Visvanatha and jagannatha Panditaraja. Incidentally, he discussed about the Kavyatva, anugamidharmas in dosas and gunas the number of gunas, and such other points employing the method of Navyanyaya. This work is incomplete. The author must have discussed or planned to discuss about the three-fold or four-fold division of kavya, referring to the objections raised by Panditaraja against the examples given by Appaya Dikshita.

 

    The erudite scholar Sri P.Sri Ramachandrudu edited this         text. It is hoped that, even in this incomplete form, this work, like Chitramimamsa and Rasagangadhara is useful for scholars.

 Sangitachandra, a treatise on the art of dance, is based on a single paper manuscript. Sangitachandra consists of 2168 verses and deals with almost all the topics. Construction of natyasala, natyagrihas, topics like the worship of different gods, the purvarangavidhi with its angas, nandi and dhruva etc., are dealt with elaborately, adding a few new points, which are not found in the Natyasastra. Thus the first four hundred verses in the Sangita Chandra deal with subjects not found Sangita Ratnakara.

 It is hoped that this work would be appreciated by the scholars, interested in the subject, because all the topics connected with the art of dance are presented in a systematic way by the author, who well-deserves the praise.This text is edited by the learned editor Prof. P. Sriramachandrudu.

36. GEMS FROM SANSKRIT LITERATURE

By Prof. Aryendra Sharma & E.V.V. Raghavacharya

 

1959;Size:Demy;pp.6+76 ;S.A.Series No. : 5

 

Sanskrit literature is replete with maxims. The number of verses and hemistiches quotable as maxims and aphorisms runs into thousands. A very small fraction of these, only 280 pieces, are included in the present collection. They are offered to the general reader, together with a faithful and readable translation in English, by way of specimens of the wisdom and observation of Sanskrit poets and authors. Many of them are also specimens of good poetry. The range of these maxims and aphorisms is fairly wide. They touch upon practically all aspects of life-love, labour, enterprise, fortune, friends, enemies, saints villains, truth, morality, conduct, religion, etc.

 

This book was first published in the year 1959.  Again it was published in the year 1979 for the second time. At present this book is not available in print.

 

37.STORIES FROM THE KATHASARITSAGARA (Vol.I)(In English)

Translated by Shri P.V. Ramanujaswamy;

Prof. Aryendra Sarma(Ed);

1959; Size:Demy;pp.2+105;Rs.20/-;S.A.Series No. : 3

 

The stories presented in this collection have been selected from the best known book of Sanskrit stories, the Kathasaritsagara. The author of this monumental work, Somadeva, belongs to the 11th century A.D., but the stories told by him go back to a much earlier period. As is well-known, the Kathasaritsagara is based upon one of the versions of the now lost Brihatkatha of Gunadhya,who is said to have written his work in the Paisachi Prakrit, probably in the third century of the Christian era. The stories, however, were not his original contribution. They were, in all likelihood, collected from the folk-tales of his period, handed down from ealier times. It is also likely that Somadeva himself included in his work some stories which had sprung up during the seven or eight centuries following Gunadhya’s period.

 The twelve stories presented here are dovetailed to the two main stories of Kalingasena and Kanakrekha.

English translation of these stories will make good reading. This book is edited by Prof. Aryendra Sarma, Director, S.A.

This second volume contains a larger number of stories of varied interest. The themes of the stories are mostly romantic and ethical, illustrating how the mysterious hand of fate plays with the lives of human beings. Though the foremost object of the story-teller here is entertainment, it appears that he also wants to instruct the reader regarding the intricacies of life and thus help him avoid the pitfalls. This book is edited by Prof. Sri Aryendra Sharma and Sri Khanderao Deshpande.

By Parvatiya Visvesvara Pandita;

Prof. Sri Aryendra Sarma(Ed);

1966;Size:Demy;pp.4+352;Rs.50/-;S.A.Series No. : 13

 The author of this work was a prolific writer and he probably lived in the 18th century. The present work, though a lyric, reveals his scholarship everywhere. He has elucidated the work with his own commentary. The verses in the Aryasaptasati are arranged in alphabetical order.

 The Aryasaptasai of Parvatiya Visvesvara Pandita, a work of considerable poetic merit, was published in the Chowkhamba Sanskrit Series in the year 1925, but the publication seems to be based on rather faulty and inaccurate MSS.  A manuscript of the work in the possession of the Osmania University Library was found to be far more accurate and hence the Academy published the work afresh and placed a reliable edition of it in the hands of the public.

  Suryadandaka is ascribed to Mayura, the author of the famous Suryasataka. It was published in 1880 from Madras in Telugu script. Sri V. Sundara Sarma, who was working as a Research Assistant in the Academy transcribed the same into Devanagari script and this edition is based on that single manuscript. This
Dandaka has its own intrinsic merit both as a fine literary piece and a powerful prayer addressed to the Sun, who is conceived as ‘all (the Gods) in one’.

 Commentary of Prof. Sri P. Sriramachandrudu, Director, S.A. added value to this edition.
