Nyāyabodhinī (न्यायबोधिनी).—After the Tarkadīpikāṭīkā, Nyāyabodhinī is the popular commentary on Tarkasaṃgraha. The writer of this commentary is Govardhanācārya as is found in the maṃgalācaraṇa-sloka. This commentary does not possess any special character. The author discusses some topics elaborately and leaves out others. The commentary is not an easy one and as such Bodas and Athalye opine that this treatise is suitable for advanced students.

Nyāyabodhinī (न्यायबोधिनी) is also the name of a commentary on the Tarkasaṃgraha ascribed to Śuklaratnanātha.
