Gaudapada-Karika : A Rare Book

Description
Preface

Prof. Vidhusekhara Bhattacharya published his edition of Gauda-padakarikas (or Agamaastra) some years ago. A close perusal of that edition clearly showed that Prof. Bhattacharya had allowed himself to be carried a little too far by his leanings towards Buddhism, and hence some of his interpretations appeared clearly to be biased and forced. While teaching Gau4apadakarika to the M. A. students, I had occasion to criticise Prof. Bhattacharya’s interpretations, and I felt that it would be better to present my views in a book—form, before a larger circle of readers so that a balanced view of Gaudapada’s philosophy could be taken. The present edition has been brought forth with such a back—ground.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
