A critical, clear and comprehensive exposition of the central features of the philosophy of Visistadvaita and its relation to other schools of Vedanta. It accepts the reality of God, individual souls, and the universe, at the same time reconciles the opposition between monism and pluralism.
A seminal work in Sanskrit literary criticism. The book considers the problem of the number of Rasa-s, whether eight or nine, while discussing its nature and scope, giving variety of solutions. Rasa is the very soul of poetry and drama. Rasa-synthesis is another feature of this work.
