Sūratakalpataru (सूरतकल्पतरु) is a commentary on the Tarkadīpikā which is ascribed to Śrīnivāsa.—The Tarkadīpikā or simply Dīpikā is an auto-commentary on the Tarkasaṃgraha of Annaṃbhaṭṭa: a Sanskrit treatise dealing with the ancient Indian system of logic and reasoning. It’s language is easily understandable and is meant primarily to unlock the doors of the twin-darśana of Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika. There are about twenty five commentaries [viz., the Sūrata-kalpataru] both traditional and modern on this treatise which undoubtedly establishes the importance of Tarkasaṃgraha.
