1 S.M. Srinivasa Chari; Foreword By MM. V. Srivatsankacharya
The Philosophy of the Bhagavadgita: A Study Based on the Evaluation of the Commentaries of Samkara, Ramanuja and Madhva
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121511011 / 9788121511018; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
This scholarly work presents a comprehensive and authentic exposition of the philosophy of the Bhagavadgita as enshrined in the original text by according due consideration to the commentaries of Samkara, Ramanuja and Madhva. In the first part of the book, Dr Chari makes an indepth study of the selected verses from each adhyaya and discusses their philosophical implications with particular reference to the Vedanta doctrines and connected issues advanced by the commentators while interpreting the crucial verses. This analytical and comparative study helps to understand how some of the basic tenets of Vedanta embedded in the Gita are explained differently by the commentators and also to assess the extent to which these are actually reflected in the original text. In the second part, the author has attempted to consolidate the various philosophical, theological and ethical ideas scattered all over the Gita and reconstruct them into coherent doctrines under three broad headings: Tattvas covering Paramatman, jivatman, and jagat, sadhana comprising karma-yoga, jnana-yoga and bhakti-yoga, and parama-purusartha. In the final chapter, Dr Chari examines dispassionately the views of the commentators on these theories and comes to the conclusion with sufficient textual authority that some of the tenets of Samskara and also Madhva do not fully conform to the teachings of the Gita. This book, which is the first of its kind, throws new light on the philosophy of the Gita. Printed Pages: 325. 013482

2 S.M. Srinivasa Chari
The Philosophy of the Upanisads. A Study Based on the Evaluation of the Comments of Samkara, Ramanuja and Madhva
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121510503 / 9788121510509; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Upanisads which contain lofty philosophical teachings of the great seers constitute the most authoritative sourcebook for the Vedanta system of philosophy. However, there is no unanimity among the ancient exponents of Vedanta regarding the nature of the philosophy adumbrated in the Upanishads. Dr. Chari's scholarly work attempts to make a dispassionate study of the philosophical passages of the fourteen Principal Upanisads by giving due consideration to not only the comments of Samkara, Ramanuja and Madhva, but more importantly, the authoritative views of Badarayana as enshrined in his classic Vedantasutras. In the first part of the book, he presents the important passages of the Upanisads along with English rendering indicating the variations in the interpretation by the three commentators and also discusses their philosophical implications with reference to the Vedanta doctrines developed in the post-Upanisadic period. In the second part he has attempted to consolidate the variety of philosophical thoughts scattered all over the Upanisads into coherent doctrines under five broad subjects: Brahman, jivatman, jagat, sadhana, and parama-purusartha. In the final chapter he conclusively establishes on the basis of an objective evaluation of the views of the commentators that the Upanisads do not support the main tenets of Advaita such as the concept of Nirvisesa Brahman, the identity of jivatman and Brahman, the phenomenal character of the jagat and the doctrine of maya. The author maintains with sufficient textual support that the nature of the philosophy advocated by the Upanisads is Theistic Monism (savisesadvaita). This book, which is the first of its kind, presents an authentic and comprehensive exposition of the philosophy of the Upanisads. Printed Pages: 356. 014175

3 S.M. Srinivasa Chari with a Foreword By Mm. N.S. Ramanuja Tatacharya
The Philosophy of the Vedantasutra: A Study Based on the Evaluation of the Commentaries of Samkara, Ramanuja and Madhva
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8121508096 / 9788121508094; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Vedantasutras of Badarayana which codifies the teachings of the Upanisads is acclaimed by all as the fundamental source-book for the system of Vedanta philosophy. Nevertheless several schools of thought such as the Advaita of Samkara, the Visistadvaita of Ramanuja and the Dvaita of Madhva have been developed from it, each one differing from the other in respect of major doctrines. This makes it difficult to determine the specific nature of the Vedanta philosophy as enunciated by Badarayana in his classic sutras apart from what is claimed by the respective commentators. Dr. Chari's scholarly work attempts to bring out the views of Badarayana on the philosophy of Vedanta as enshrined in the sutras. He discusses comprehensively and in a systematic manner with reference to the selected sutras, the five fundamental doctrines of Vedanta namely, the nature of Brahman, the nature of the individual soul and its relation to Brahman, the nature of the universe and its relation to Brahman, the nature of the means to attain Brahman and the nature of the Supreme Goal. On the basis of an objective evaluation of the comments of Samkara, Ramanuja, and Madhva, the three principal exponents of Vedanta, he has conclusively established that the Vedanta philosophy of Badarayana is theistic monism, upholding the oneness of the Ultimate Reality as organically related to the sentient souls and the non-sentient cosmic matter. The book which is the first of its kind seeks to provide a deeper insight into the Vedantasutras. Printed Pages: 227. 024592

4 S.M. Srinivasa Chari
The Philosophy of Visistadvaita Vedanta: A Study Based on Vedanta Desika's Adhikarana-Saravali
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120831802 / 9788120831803; Hardcover; New; New; 
The school of Vedanta designated as Visistadvaita was expounded by Sri Ramanuja in the classic Sri-Bhasya, which were developed by Sri Vedanta Desika in his two philosophical treatises titled Tattva-mukta-kalapa and Adhikarana-saravali. This scholarly work of Dr. S.M.S. Chari deals with the Adhikarana saravali. The variety of theories related to Vedanta which are discussed in the 156 Adhikaranas of the Vedanta-sutras are consolidated and presented in a sequential order under five major headings: the doctrine of Brahman, the doctrine of universe and Brahman, the doctrine of sadhana and the doctrine of Paramapurusartha. In the concluding chapter on General Evaluation, Dr. Chari discusses dispassionately the differing views of Samkara, Ramanuja and Madhva on the fundamental controversial theories of Vedanta. This volume along with the author's other books on Vedanta would be invaluable for a fuller understanding of Visistadvaita in all its aspects.Printed Pages: 435. 102152
