A Complete introduction to Panini Sutras for the use of beginners.

Laghu Siddhanta Kaumudi is a text in which Panini Sutras are so rearranged as to bring together the relevant sutras bearing on a particular topic. The present book is an English translation of Laghu Siddhanta Kaumudi together with comments, references and index. The book is a valuable contribution to the study of Sanskrit Grammar.

“The Translation of Laghu Siddhanta Kaumudi by late Dr. Ballantyne has enabled even beginners to find their way through the labyrinth of Sanskrit grammar” – Max Muller.

    It is a good effort but the scan is smudged and very difficult to read the e-book. The old bengali type fonts are real pain. So when ever you scan please try to get a nice hard copy. Pardon me for finding fault in this great charity act.
