"The Tamil Veda - Pillan's Interpretation of The Tiruvaymoli" #John Carman and Vasudha Narayanan# [The University of Chicago Press - 1989]


DOWNLOAD (English, 12MB, OCR-layer in English):

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: A kind of philological research you can usually find at any major university. 

The research has its riveting moments, for example, the immersion into "Arul, Hetu and Nirhetuka" notions on the page 120 (see the screenshot below or on #flickr, #plurk):


And I liked the idea which is quite seldom mentioned in researches on Vaishnavism - on the page 185 it is correctly noticed, that generally the Western scholars lack training in Tamil, which prevents them from the proper understanding of true Shree Ramanuja-Siddhanta and Tamil Tradition in its entirety (see the quote below or #flickr, #plurk):

"The Cult of Jagannatha and The Regional Tradition of Orissa" #A.Eschmann, H.Kulke, G.C.Tripathi# [1986]

DOWNLOAD (English, 33MB, OCR-layer in English):

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: A compilation of diverse articles about Shree Jagannatha Cult on 576 pages. As usually the parts, written by Western scholars are very mediocre, while the articles written by Indian researchers are awesome with the ones written by G.C. Tripathi being of outstanding quality. 

So, don't miss all the articles written by G.C. Tripathi - they are great from PanchaRatra/Tantra points of view - for example, G.C. Tripathi mentions "Shree Krama-Dipika" of Shree Nimbarka-Vaishnava-Sampradaya and dwells on the complex rituals from Shree Vaishnava-PanchaRatra. 
All other articles from the compilation (written by A. Eschmann, H. Kulke and etc.)  are wishy-washy and generally don't deserve your time to be wasted on.
