1 A.D. Pusalker; Foreword By Dr A. Berriedale Keith
Bhasa: A Study
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1968; 8121503558 / 9788121503556; Second Revised Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
In the field of Sanskrit literature, no other event has probably been of as great significance as the discovery, in 1909 by Mm. Dr. T. Ganapati Sastri, of the thirteen plays ascribed to Bhasa. With that discovery, Bhasa, who was till then a mere name mentioned in passing by poets, dramatists and anthologists, became not only a reality but one of the most luminous stars in the Sanskrit literary galaxy. In this little over half a century, hundreds of critiques, big and small, have poured forth on the works of Bhasa, but it would be admitted on all hands that the present work, Bhasa-A Study, by Dr. A.D. Pusalker, is the most detailed and comprehensive, written with understanding and authority. First published in 1940, this work has come to be considered as almost the last word on the subject. That such an eminent scholar as Dr. A.B. Keith has contributed the Foreword to it is in itself a testimony to the high quality of the book. The book is divided into two sections: The first is concerned with the Bhasa Problem and discusses at length the question of authenticity, authorship and date, besides examining and estimating the literary excellence of each of the plays. The second, bigger than the first, takes a yet different line of research. It paints the social conditions of the time of Bhasa as revealed from his works and would, therefore, be of absorbing interest even to those whose concern transcends literature. In addition, the present second edition is brought up to date being supplemented by two new chapters, one of which surveys the recent material on Bhasa and the other is on the Yajnaphala. In short, the book is a beacon-light to the students of Bhasa in particular and Sanskrit literature and drama in general. Printed Pages: 640. 023459

2 A. Berriedale Keith
Buddhist Philosophy in India and Ceylon
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1979; 8170691095 / 9788170691099; Second Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Buddhism can be viewed as a vehicle for transporting its adherents, who are anxious for release from rebirths but least inclined to follow either the path of rigorous asceticism or that of tantalizing speculation on the nature of the self, from this word of misery to Nirvana where all pain ceases. Its message was so simple and direct that all, from prince to plebeian alike, succumbed to its appeal and swelled its ranks. It became the religion of an empire which held sway over the Indian sub-continent; in the process the message of the master was lost. A number of schools, each claiming to echo the authentic voice of the founder, sprang up. The melee that ensued ultimately split Buddhism into two camps-the Hinayana (lesser vehicle) and the Mahayana (greater vehicle). A.B. Keith, in this book, Buddhist Philosophy in India and Ceylon, gives an account of its historical development by thoroughly discussing Buddhism in the Pali Canon, the development in the Hinayana, the philosophy of the Mahayana and Buddhist logic, and lays to rest all misconceptions surrounding it. The fact that this book holds an unique position among books on this subject is attested by its undiminishing popularity ever since its first publication in 1923. Printed Pages: 339. 000777

4 A. Berriedale Keith
The Karma Mimamsa
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1978; 8170690757 / 9788170690757; Second Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
The six systems of Hindu philosophy Karma-Mimamsa, Uttara-Mimamsa, Sankhya, Yoga, Vaiseshika, Nyaya-are grouped into three pairs due to their close affinity. The first two are basically expositions than philosophies. Each is called a Mimamsa which means investigation or critical interpretation. The Karma-Mimamsa, as codified by Jaimini, consists of a large number of aphorisms, usually accompanied by comments, which provide authoritative solutions to problems arising from the interpretation and observance of every injunction covered by the Srauta and Grihya sutras governing sacrificial rites. Gradual discussions on the validity of knowledge and its diverse forms crept inside the main body. Most of the commentaries, save that of Sabarasvamin's Bhasya, went into disuse. This Bhasya was expounded by two renowned scholars Prabhakara known as the Guru and Kumarila called Bhatta. The former's work Brihati is a pure elucidation, while the latter's Sabarabhasya, divided into three parts Slokavarttika, Tantravarttika and Tupika frequently contradicts Sabara, Salikanatha, a disciple of Prabhakara carried on the tradition of his master. Mandana Misra, also known as Suresvaracharya, wrote several works on Kumarila system. The Karma-Mimamsa denies the existence of God; suggests, rather than asserts, a realistic conception of the world; upholds the doctrine of Karma. In short, it enjoins everyone to do his duty; for this is the way to heaven (Svarga) and infinite bliss (anantya). In this book, A.B. Keith clears the mists of obscurity enveloping the discussions on Karma-Mimamsa and shows how relevant is its exegesis to modern man. Printed Pages: 120. 018742
