A Short Biographical Sketch of Sri Jibananda Vidyasagara by Sri Sudipta Munsi

“Paṇḍitakulapati Jīvānanda Vidyāsāgara was born to Śrī Tārānātha Tarkavācaspati Bhaṭṭācārya and Ambikādevī in the year, 1844, on the last day of the Bengali month of Caitra.  He studied various subjects like Vyākaraṇa, Sāhitya, Alaṅkāra, Nyāya, Sāṅkhya, Pātañjala, Vedānta, Mīmāṃsā, Jyotiṣa and Smṛti under the tutelage of his father, who was an institution in himself.  He earned the prestigious title of “Vidyāsāgara” from the Government Sanskrit College of Calcutta in 1870, and a B.A. from the University of Calcutta.  Impressed by his knowledge of various aspects of the Yogaśāstras at the end of a conversation, Mr. Olcott of the Theosophical Society called Vidyāsāgara “Godfather” in 1882.  Even during his student days, his enthusiasm for intellectual pursuit was noticeable in the publication of editions of Sanskrit texts.  He also started writing his own commentary on such Sanskrit texts at the same time.  The subjects he dealt with were as varied as terse Indian philosophy, Sanskrit grammar, classical Sanskrit rhetoric and aesthetics, Sanskrit court-poetry, religious codes (dharmaśāstra), classical Indian medical sciences (Āyurveda), etc.  He turned down lucrative job offers from Lahore, Jabbalpore, Jaipur, Nepal, etc.  According to Śambhucandra Vidyāratna, Jīvānanda Vidyāsāgara serially published Sanskrit commentaries of his own on 107 Sanskrit works.  It took him 22 years to write these commentaries.  He wrote a version of the Kathāsaritsāgara in lucid Sanskrit prose in 1400 pages and published it in 1883.  He also prepared simpler versions of difficult Sanskrit prose works like Kādambarī of Bāṇabhaṭṭa, Daśakumāracarita of Daṇḍī, etc.  He also translated the Tarkasaṅgraha of Annaṃbhaṭṭa into English.  His own commentaries on Sanskrit works became so popular in Europe, America, Ceylon, China, Burman, India, etc. that most of these works underwent about 5-6 reprints during his lifetime.  Apart from that, he published editions of at least 108 Sanskrit works, some with traditional Sanskrit commentaries.  He also ran the free Sanskrit school, started by his father of legendary intellectual fame, and taught students thronging there from various parts of the country.  A true polymath, Jīvānanda Vidyāsāgara was survived by his sons, Āśubodha Vidyābhūṣaṇa and Nityabodha Vidyāratna.

It is a matter of immense pride for us to present a digital version of the Saralā, a 19th century Sanskrit commentary on the Vaiyākaraṇasiddhāntakaumudī of Bhaṭṭojī Dīkṣita, by Prof. Tārānātha Tarkavācaspati Bhaṭṭācārya of Vācaspatya fame.  From Pt. Śambhucandra Vidyāratna’s biography of Tārānātha Tarkavācaspati it appears that it is the first Sanskrit commentary on the Siddhāntakaumudī written by any Bengali scholar.  From the same source we learn that this commentary, Saralā, generated professional and academic jealousy even in the minds of contemporary scholars of Pāṇinian grammar residing in Benares, the cultural capital of India, who when asked to compose a like commentary on the Siddhāntakaumudī to discount the uniqueness of the Saralā, remained silent in failure.  The authorship of this commentary led to the widespread fame of Tarkvācaspati as an outstanding grammarian of the Pāṇinian School.  Also the fact of the running of the Saralā through three editions during the lifetime of Tārānātha Tarkavācaspati legitimates its claim to immense popularity.  Thus we earnestly believe that a widespread cultivation of this commentary will immensely benefit students of Pāṇinian grammar all over the world.

Astavyastam – A Sanskrit play by S. Jagannatha

cover astavyastamSanskrit poet and writer S. Jagannatha is indeed familiar to visitors of this blog. His book of modern proverbs ‘Abhanakajagannatha’ was posted to this blog sometime back.

It is our good fortune that the author thought it fit to share with us ‘Astavyastam’, a satirical Sanskrit play in eleven acts. Message of this play is very simple – “Sanksrit language cannot be revived & rejuvanated merely by our taking pride in its greatness. We need to study Sanskrit earnestly and gain sufficient mastery over it to produce new Sanskrit works of every genre.”

‘Astavyastam’ is not just a play that one reads and enjoys, it inspires and compels one to think and act.

Trivandrum Sanskrit Series – Anantasayana Samskrita Granthavali

Trivandrum Sanskrit Series - DaivamTrivandrum Sanskrit Series (Anantasayana Samskrita Granthavali) is a collection of ancient, very rare and previously unpublished Sanskrit works published by Manuscripts Library, Trivandrum in the early part of 20th century. First book in Trivandrum Sanskrit Series – “Daivam”, a work on Sanskrit grammar, was published in 1905 edited by MM T. Ganapati Sastri. Nearly 100 texts were published within a short span of 20 years and the series continues to this day.

An article on Trivandrum Sanskrit Series written by G Harihara Sastri that appeared in Indian Historical Quarterly Volume 1 in 1925 describes the genesis and growth of this series and also evaluates the unique contributions of this series to the growth of Indological studies.

Vasantika Swapnam – Sanskrit translation of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream by R Krishnamacharya

Midsummer Night’s Dream is, perhaps, the first drama of Shakespeare that  was translated into Sanskrit. Several decades after  Krishnamacharya translated Midsummer Night’s Dream into Sanskrit, Sanskrit scholars turned their attention to translating other dramas of Shakespeare. Some of them are listed  below:

1. Venisa sarthavahah (Merchant of Venice) – Ananta Tripathi Śarma  1969
2. Yatha Te Rocate (As you like it) – Ananta Tripathi Sarma 1969
3. Dinarkarajakumarahemalekham (Hamlet) – Sukhamay Mukhopadhyay  1971
4. Uthika (Romeo & Juliet) – Revaprasad Dvivedi 1978
5. Candrasenah Durgadesasya Yuvarajah (Hamlet) – SD  Joshi & Pt. Vighnahari Deo 1980

Excerpts from the author’s preface in the first edition of “Vasantika  Swapnam”

It has been my long-cherished wish, to render into Sanskrit some of  the plays of Shakespeare. But a translation in the form of a Sanskrit  drama, is attended with difficulties. A Sanskrit drama, even if it should  be a translation, has to conform to a string of hard and fast rules. Failing in this respect, the work, no matter however good, is sure to  offend the taste of Sanskrit Pandits, and a work like mine written in the  first instance to give our Pandits a taste of Western poetry will have no  reason for its existence.

It is for this reason that Prof. H. H. Wilson has adopted the form of the  English drama in translating Sanskrit Natakas. Following the same  plan a translation of Shakespeare should have the garb of a Sanskrit  drama, though it may not be possible in every case to observe the rules laid down for Sanskrit Natakas.

This work is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Midsummer-night’s  Dream. The rendering is free in some places, and literal in other  places, without being detrimental to the general tenor of the passages  in the original. The ideas are enlarged in some places, but the  enlargement is generally in keeping with the dominant feelings. There are deviations in details with view to keep up the characteristics of the  Sanskrit drama. Some few passages pregnant with such ideas as  could be brought home to our Pandits have been omitted, as also  some passages which relate purely to Western habits and customs. I  dare say men of greater capacity and learning than myself may  produce a much happier and better translation of the same play.

I have selected Midsummer-night’s Dream at the outset, since it is not long and most of the ideas in it are not unfamiliar to the best of our  Pandits. This play of Shakespeare has, of all his plays, the most  Oriental cast about it, and I have accordingly given Sanskrit names for all the characters in the play.

I sincerely hope that this essay of mine may induce abler scholars to  take up the task, and, with far better success, introduce to the literatii  of the East some of the most chaste and beautiful thoughts of the  West.

Siddhanta Kaumudi English Translation by Srisa Chandra Vasu

Siddhanta Kaumudi is a celebrated Sanskrit commentary by Bhattoji Dikshita (early 17th century) on the Ashtadhydyi and is believed to be more popular than Panini’s work. It re-arranges the sutras of Panini under appropriate heads and offers exposition that is orderly and easy to follow.

The sutras are arranged in two parts – the first part deals with the rules of interpretation, sandhis, declensions, formation of feminines, case endings, compounds, secondary derivations and the second part with conjugation, primary suffixes, Vedic grammar and accents.

English translation of Siddhanta Kaumudi by Srisa Chandra Vasu is highly useful to students of Sanskrit grammar who are not capable of studying the Ashtadhyayi or Siddhanta Kaumudi with the help of Sanskrit commentaries.
