Priyadarsika of Sriharsadeva
Description
PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION

This edition of Sri Harsadeva's Priyadarsika is prepared on the same lines as my editions of the Ratnavali and the Nagananda that have been already published, with a view to supply the University student with a text-book that will meet all his requirements. Care has also been taken to make the book useful to the general reader as well. A brief but sufficiently explanatory new commentary in Sanskrit has been added containing the solutions of difficult compounds, derivations of difficult words, etc. etc. Another feature of this edition is the Introduction wherein all that is necessary to be known about the author and the play has been succinctly put together for ready reference and systematic study. The figures of speech and the various technicalities of Sanskrit dramaturgy are not given (except in a few cases) as they are not of much use to the junior University student. I have used the editions of Jivananda Vidyasagar, V. D. Gadre (1884), Pandit R.V. Krisnamachariar (1906), T. V. Sreenivasachariar (1908) and that published by the Columbia University 1923; and I am beholden to the editors of all these for help of one kind or another derived from them, specially to those of the last mentioned work. My thanks are also due to Mr. L. S. Bhandare B.A.S.T.C. who helped me in writing out the later part of introduction. Any suggestions as to improvement etc. will be gratefully received.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Priyadarsika of Sriharsadeva

Ed. M. R. Kale

The Priyadarsika is a romantic comedy in four acts and is named after the heroine, the daughter of Drdhavarman, King of Anga.

The plot of Priyadarsika is derived from the semi-legendary life of King Udayana as given in the Brhatkatha of Gunadhva. The story of the loves of Udayana also known as Vatsaraja, and of his romantic adventures seems to have been exceedingly popular in ancient India as is evident from the references to it by many Sanskrit poets.

It contains an exhaustive introduction, a short but sufficiently explanatory, a short but sufficiently explanatory commentary in Sanskrit, various readings, a literal English translation, copious notes and useful appendices.

Testimonials

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
