"Devotional Poets and Mystics" - 2 Volumes [set of articles - various authors]


DOWNLOAD (English):

2 SEPARATE PDF-FILES:  #YADISK  #GETT-1 (volume 01)  #GETT-2 (volume02)  #JOTTA

1 ZIP-FILE with 2 pdf-files (packed with 7zip, ultra compression - unpacking may stutter on weak computers): #GOOGLEDRIVE  #MEGA 

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: 2-Volumes compilation of articles with a philological tinge, mainly about Krishna-Rama-Bhakti-poetry: Meera Bai, Rupa Goswamin, Surdas, SankaraDeva, Narasimha Mehta and others! 

The editions are very simple, perfect non-heavy summer reading for poetically-inclined persons! 

Table of Contents:


Some technical notes about scans: The scans had been found on archive.org, but both pdf-files were compressed according to ruthless native archive.org-script, which makes pdf-files barely readable even on very powerful computers (they lag and have problems with page renderings, as archive.org uses very strange pdf-compression algorithm!!!). 

Fortunately, there were original jp2-files on archive.org too. I have downloaded jp2 and compiled my own pdf-files from them - apart from archive.org I use algorithm which does not compress pdf-files at extreme level! Still if you need original archive.org scans - #part1 and #part2

"CATALOGUE OF PANCARATRA SAMHITA" #editors Sadhu Parampurushdas and Sadhu Shrutiprakashdas# [SwamiNarayana Aksharpith] ~Gujarat 2002~

DOWNLOAD (Sanskrit-English):


English annotation by Vishnudut1926: Great edition from SwamiNarayan-Vaishnava-Sampradaya. Apart from the catalogue of PanchaRatra Granthas, the edition also contains several articles (in Sanskrit and English) about"Shree PanchaRatra". 

The article in the end of the edition is superb: it tells about primary PanchaRatra Samhitas with neatly organized lists based on the choronology. 

This edition mentions "Mankana-Samhita" in the connection with Shree Vedanta Desika MahAcharya Granthas, of course!


Interesting fact - the edition also mentions "Govinda-Samhita" (it would be interesting to read!!!):


So, the edition in overall is especially recommended in case you are fond of "Shree PanchaRatra"-Granthas: the compilations of this kind are quite rare in English!

By the way, the back of the research says the following:

"SARVARTHA SIDDHI OF SRI VEDANTADESIKA" - #a study by Late Dr. V.N. Seshadri Acharya# [Sri Visishtadvaita Research Centre] ~Madras, 1993~

UPDATE from 07-June-2019: enhanced scan had been added (optimized size + OCR-txt-layer in English)

DOWNLOAD (Sanskrit-English, 17MB, OCR-layer):
#GOOGLEDRIVE #YADISK #MEGA #BOX #GETT #JOTTA #KOOFR #SYNC #DROPBOX #PCLOUD 

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: This is a Vedantic survey, it's main focus is the refutation of various systems hostile to Vishishta-Adwaita (nyaya-vaisheshika, karma-kanda, mayavada and etc.)

The reading is definitely not for an average reader - one should have advanced knowledge of Vedanta/Upanishads/logic in order to understand, though the last part (about jiva-tattva) is not very complicated and can be prescribed for everybody. 

The cover in the original scan was corrupted, I have restored and re-designed in GIMP as usually.
