The only critical edition of the most important anthology of Sanskrit poetry, the famous Satakatraya ascribed to Bhartrhari, this magnum opus of D.D. Kosambi, mathematician, historian, Indologist, in fact an outstanding intellectual of pre- and post-Independent India, is made available again. A milestone in the adoption of the Western methods of textual criticism by Indians, Kosambi's edition contains in addition to the text of three centuries in the sequence niti, srngara and vairagya along with a detailed and highly informative critical apparatus, a long "Introduction" in which all the necessary information about the edition is given and all the problems posed by the manuscript material and their transmission are discussed. An "Alphabetical Index of Slokas" considerably enhances the usefulness of this addition. A must for all sahrdayas!
