DHATURATNAKARA in 5 volumes (Sanskrit)
By Muni Lavanyavijaya
Edited by Dr. Omnath Bimali
2004 240 x 185 mm 3000 pp (in 5 volumes)
81 7110 232 0 (Set) Hardback Rs. 3500

The grammatical description of verbs plays a pivotal role in the study of Sanskrit. In Sanskrit, the description of verb forms is a prominent feature of any grammatical work. Dhatupatha is the basic & primary component of the description of verb forms. Many Sanskrit grammarians have collated all the verbs in Sanskrit and illustrated their verb forms using different methodologies.

'Dhaturatnakara' follows the methodolgy adopted by Hemacandracarya's Haima Vyakarana. This work has been rendered by the disciple of Acarya Vijayanemisuri, Muni Lavanyavijaya, who went on to become Acarya Vijayalavanya Suri. His editing is so thorough, that it is unlikely that any Dhaturupa or verb form of Sanskrit has been overlooked in this veritable ocean of verb-forms.

'Dhaturatnakara' not only complements Haima Vyakarana; it is a model grammatical work on Sanskrit Dhatus, and a must- have for every student and scholar of Sanskrit grammar.

The title of each volume is given below:

Volume 1 : Tinantaprakriya
Volume 2 : Nigantaprakriya
Volume 3 : Sannantaprakriya tatha Yanantprakriya
Volume 4 : Yanluvantaprakriya tatha Namadhatuprakriya
Volume 5 : Bhavakarmaprakriya

The five volumes are attractively published using a fresh typeface; reasonably priced; more importantly, the proof reading is impeccable!

From the 6th to the 15th century, Apabhramsa has been predominantly, the lingua franca of India. For about 900 years, Apabhramsa was the principal langauge in many regions of India. Many modern Indian langauges like Hindi, Guajrati, Marathi, Bengali, etc. owe their origin to Apabhramsa.

This Dictionary is the first work of its kind on Apabhramsa taking into account the science of words and etymological, grammatical and linguistic aspects of Apabhramsa. Light is also shed on the intricacies of Apabhramsa grammar, the innnate difficulties in deciding the gender of certain words, common usages illustrate multiple meanings of words. Etymological roots are traced, the alphabet is discussed. Various references add to the reliability of the meanings, and citations are liberally used.

This dictionary is highly useful for the linguistics scholar as well as the Jaina scholar.

Dr. Nareshkumar is a celebrated Kosakara, and specialises in vyutpatti, kosa vijñana and has also edited the Hindi Vyutpatti Kosa. He is a recognised expert in Hindi, Sanskrit and Apabhramsa.

SANSKRIT - WORTERBUCH IN KURRZERER FASSUNG (Sanskrit - German)
By Otto Von Bohtlingk & Sieben Bande
ISBN 81-208-0907-6
Ist St. Petersburg edition 1883-6 in three volumes
This hardcover single volume edition 2003; 2127 pages
Rs. 2900.00 *

* Limited time offer: Free seamail to any part of the world

Review:Verily, the SANSKRIT - WORTERBUCH IN KURRZERER FASSUNG is a milestone in European Indological scholarship and a signal achievement in lexicography. Also known as the Smaller Petrograd Dictionary, this work was completed in the penultimate decade of the nineteenth century. The 7 volumed Larger Petrograd Dictionary was completed by Otto Von Bohtlingk in co operation with RV Roth. This work is meant "to improve where something ought to be improved and to add where something was missing, and to always remind hte reader, by leaving out all the quotations and references, that the larger dictionary had to remain the main source."

This work is such a great improvement both in terms of substance and quantity that it has become the tool for all those who wish to read Sanskrit texts; in fact most of the later Sanskrit dictionaries are heavily indebted to this work directly or indirectly. Monier Williams' is a little more than a translated abridgement.

This is a fresh reprint. Unfortunately, the old typeface has been retained, the value addition being that it has been reprinted on good quality paper and is handsomely bound.
