Sanskrit Manuscripts : Nyāyāvalīdīdhiti

Rāghavānanda Sarasvatī

Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Unpublished commentary or “garland of chapters” (<i>adhikaraṇamālā</i>) on the <i>Mīmāmsāsūtra</i>s by Rāghavānanda Sarasvatī, who may have been active in the 18th century (Mishra 1964: 62). The work is the same as the one described under <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-00894/1'>Add. 894</a> and <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-00895/1'>895</a>. The manuscript covers the first three books (<i>adhyāya</i>) of the collection, with the exception of the very beginning, as the first folio is missing. The commentary on the aphorisms, preceded by a general introduction, starts on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(1);return false;'>f. 2v8</a>. In the final rubric of the first book (<a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(1);return false;'>f. 37r3</a>), the author is said to be the pupil of one Advaya Bhagavatpāda, himself the pupil of one Viśveśvara Bhagavatpāda (possibly identical with Gāgā Bhaṭṭa, the author of the <i>Bhāṭṭacintāmaṇi</i>). This is contradicted by <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-00894/1'>Ms. Add. 894</a>, giving Rāghavānanda as the direct pupil of Viśveśvara. </p>
