Padarthadharmasamgraha and Nyayakandali

by Ganganatha Jha | 1915 | 250,428 words

Summary: The English translation of the Padarthadharmasamgraha of Prashastapada including the commentary called the Nyayakandali of Shridhara. Although the Padartha-dharma-sangraha is officially a commentary (bhashya) on the Vaisheshika-Sutra by Kanada, it is presented as an independent work on Vaisesika philosophy: It reorders and combines the original Sutras which are then being commented upon. The Vaisesika-Sutras are a core text of one of the most ancient philsophical schools of ancient India, dating to at least the 6th century BCE.

Alternative titles: Praśastapāda Padārthadharmasaṅgraha (प्रशस्तपाद पदार्थधर्मसङ्ग्रह), Padārthadharmasaṃgraha (पदार्थधर्मसङ्ग्रह), Padārtha-dharma-saṅgraha (पदार्थ-धर्म-सङ्ग्रह), Saṃgraha (सङ्ग्रह); Śrīdhara Nyāyakandalī (श्रीधर न्यायकन्दली), Nyāyakaṇḍalī (न्यायकण्डली).

This edition includes the original Sanskrit text, unicode transliteration, English translation of root text and commentary, and reference links to the Vaisheshika Sutras with its own commentaries.
