Bhaktisutras of Narada

Maharsi Vedavyasa was staying in his hermitage at Badarikasrama. One day the celestial hermit Narada turned up there in the course of his usual wanton rambles. The great Vyasa welcomed him with due rites, and on his taking seat, asked: "Prophet of Gods! The soul of man seeks to get free from the hold of pleasure and pain, and craves for deliverance from the bondage of the world. But the path of Action (karma) does not lead directly to the goal. Knowledge (jnana) of course, does; nevertheless, without the leaven of Devotion it can achieve very little in substance. Devotion (bhakti) is the only way of attaining salvation; all the others have importance only insofar as they are auxiliary to it. Therefore I humbly ask you to explain to me the doctrine of Devotion." The divine Narada at once surveyed the mind of Vyasa and replied, "Great sage! You have come down on earth for the redemption of mankind. Your present enquiry has been prompted by that desire alone. By you disciple Jaimini, you have already in the Purvamimamsa discoursed upon the problem of Action, and you have yourself completed the enquiry into the problem of knowledge in the Uttaramimamsa. And now you have taken up the problem of Devotion. I am going to explain it. But its full explanation will be given by you in your Srimadbhagavatam which will be a nature of a commentary upon your Brahmasutras. My sutras will be read as such an explanation of your very short description of Devotion given in the Uttaramimamsa." Printed Pages: 64. 001231

Sandilyasutram
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121508274 / 9788121508278; Second Revised Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
This work is based on the text edited by Ballantyne and published in the Bibliotheca Indica, New Series in 1861. The translation has been very much facilitated, and in many places, considerably improved by E.B. Cowell's work published in the same series in 1878. Nothing definite is known regarding the author or the date of the One Hundred Aphorisms of Sandilya, "They are the work of some anonymous teacher" according to Cowell, "who ascribed his doctrine to the ancient rsi Sandilya partly because he wished to conceal its modern origin under a name belonging to Vedic times, and also because the Sandilya-vidya supplied a convenient vantage-ground for his main doctrine of the necessity of faith." However this theory must be rejected. Printed Pages: 122. 001232

"However this theory must be rejected. The one thousand aphorisms of Sandilya does bot profess to teach an original doctrine of devotion. it is a Mimamsa of Bhakti, that is, a compilation and exposition of illustrative authoritative texts on the main points in the doctrine of devotion. It also explains creation and desolation, the causes of samsara and mukti, the nature and function of the Atman and Manas, the relation of the world, the jiva and Brahman, and sources and objects of knowledge.Printed Pages: 114. 100662

The Samkhya Philosophy: Containing Samkhya-pravachanasutram, with the Bhasya of Vijnanabhiksu and Extracts from the Vrittisara of Mahadeva Vedantin; Tatvasamasa; Samkhyakarika; Panchasikhasutram
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 812151097X / 9788121510974; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Samkhya of Kapila has influenced every school of Indian philosophy. Among the treatises explaining its teachings, only two have survived intact, the rest being either in fragments or totally lost. One of these, the Samkhya-pravachana-sutram with two commentaries by Aniruddha and Vijnana-bhiksu form the body of this book, and the others Kapila-sutram, Samkhya-karika of Isvarakrisna and Panchasikha-sutram are given in appendices. The Samkhya relies on the ruler of logic for establishing the validity of its tenets. Its object is to differentiate between the soul and the non-soul. It starts with the primordial cause called prakriti or pradhana which resulted in effect, this world. It has put forward a theory of evolution to explain all objects, animate and inanimate, of this world as an infinite number of permutations and combinations of the three gunas-sattva, rajas and tamas. Its essence consists of two principles : Prakriti and Purusa. It opposes Vedic sacrifices but not the Vedas. It does not deny God but states that His existence cannot be proved. Its importance can be gauged from the fact that the Vedantasutra devotes sixty out of hundred and three aphorisms to refute its doctrines. The appendices provide all the available texts with indices for aphorisms and words. The translation, with its lucid explanation of the texts and commentaries, brings the ideas of the renowned Samkhya within reach of all. 037378
