Tarkasaṃgrahasaṃktu (तर्कसंग्रहसंक्तु) is a commentary on the Tarkasaṃgraha which is ascribed to an unknown author.—The Tarkasaṃgraha of Annaṃbhaṭṭa is 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 Tarkasaṃgraha-saṃktu] both traditional and modern on this treatise which undoubtedly establishes the importance of Tarkasaṃgraha.
