The Vedantakalpalatika by Madhusudana Sarasvati is a well-known Sanskrit manual embracing all important topics relating to Vedanta philosophy. It is most probably the first work written by the author who all the same thinks highly of it, as is clear from the ambitious title bestowed upon it. The aim of the writer is to show how the non-Advaita philosophic doctrines fail to give a true evaluation of the ultimate Reality which must be admitted to be Nirvisesa and Nirdharmeka, if one is to do proper justice to both Sruti and Tarka. A detailed summary in English of the work is given in the Introduction, for the benefit of the reader. I have to thank Prof. R. N. Dandekar (Poona Univer- sity) for many useful suggestions. Thanks are also due to Prof'. Dr. Sulochana Nachane, M. A., ph. D. (Baroda University), Dr. Shilavati Oke, M. A., ph. D., Miss Vimal Thakar, M. A. and other Research workers of the Post-Graduate Department, Shri G. N. Shrigondekar, Librarian, and Shri S. N. Savadi of the. Manuscript Department for help in various ways.
