Description
Preface

In preparing the present edition of the Ritusamhara the particular requirements of University students have been kept in view; but it is hoped that nothing that is of interest to the general reader has been omitted. The Bombay text in six Cantos and 144 verses has been adopted as being the one most generally received; all extra verses found in Mss, and printed copies have been thrown together is an appendix at the end. In settling the test I have chosen what readings seemed to suit best; the frequent discussions about variants given in the notes may serve to induce in the student a habit of thinking for himself. The notes had to be done independently of the com., as the edition was undertaken in April last on the Sastri's intimating to me that he would be able to begin and finish the com in May and not earlier than that; and yet I trust no serious discrepancies have been allowed to remain between the com, and the notes. A full index of the more important words in the text has been added at the end. I am very sorry to see that some misprints have disfigured the book owing to the proofs of the notes and the com being corrected different times and places.

I nave used the editions of K. R. Godbole, Mr. S. S. Ayyar and the Nirn edition with com and notes, and to the editors of all these my thanks are due. I am also greatly obliged to a friend of mine who materially assisted me in the preparation of this edition, and also corrected the proof-sheets.

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.
Bernd, Spain
