Sanskrit Manuscripts : Khaṇḍanoddhāraṭīkā

Pragalbhācārya, Pragalbha Miśra, Śubhaṃkara

Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A paper manuscript of the first section of the so-called <i>Khaṇḍanoddhāraṭīkā</i> by Pragalbhācārya (ca. 15th c., also known as Śubhaṃkara; see NCC, vol. 12, p.226). While the title suggests that this work is a commentary (<i>ṭīkā</i>) on the <i>Khaṇḍanoddhāra</i> - a work composed by Vācaspati Miśra II (mid 15th c.) to refute Śrīharṣa's <i>Khaṇḍanakhaṇḍakhādya</i>, an Advaita work refuting definitions of the Nyāya system (see NCC, vol.5, p.177) - it rather seems to be a direct commentary on Śrīharṣa's work. Firstly, Pragalbhācārya does not refer to Vācaspati's work either in his introductory verses or in the concluding passage of his work, but only to the well-known Naiyāyikas Śaṅkara Miśra and Vardhamāna Upādhyāya. Secondly, this work is also known as the <i>Khaṇḍanadarpaṇa</i>, and has been edited with other commentaries on the <i>Khaṇḍanakhaṇḍakhādya</i> in the Chowkhamba Sanskrit Series (1936). </p>
