Bhāṭṭatantrarahasyam. The Bhāṭṭatantrarahasya of Khaṇḍadeva with the Sāraprakāśikā commentary by N. S. Ramanuja Tatacharya

Abstract : The Bhāṭṭatantrarahasya of Khaṇḍadeva (17th c.) belongs to the Bhāṭṭa school of Mīmāṃsā. It deals mainly with the meaning of roots and suffixes, and their role in conveying the meaning of the sentence. Though this is a topic of grammar, it is widely discussed in Nyāya and Mīmāṃsā works as well. The Bhāṭṭatantrarahasya is divided into two parts. The first part begins with the definition of dharma, the main concept of Mīmāṃsā, and then deals at length with the meaning of injunctional suffix (liṅ), refuting the views of logicians and establishing bhāvanā (creative energy) as the main meaning of the sentence. In the second part, the author discusses the meaning of nominal suffixes (sup), quoting relevant rules from Pāṇinian grammar. Though Khaṇḍadeva's interpretation of Pāṇinian rules deviates from the grammatical tradition in some cases, he tries to prove that there is no violation of grammar by the Mīmāṃsakas. Given the complexity of the Bhāṭṭatantrarahasya, Prof. Ramanuja Tatacharya presents it here with his own commentary, the Sāraprakāśikā. Also included are an index of the Pāṇinian rules, an index of the kārikās (citations) and a bibliography.
