      Jaya Jinendra

      A superlative work on Jaina Nyaya, in the Navyanyaya style..
      by super scholar Mahopadhyaya Yashovijaya Gani

      ASHTASAHASRITATPARYAVIVARANAM (Sanskrit)
      In 2 volumes
      By Upadhyaya Yashovijaya
      Ed. by Muni Vairagyarativijaya with 11 Appendices
      Vijayamahodayasuri Granthamala 15
      Distributed by Hindi Granth Karyalay
      2004 250 x 188 mm 903 pp in 2 volumes
      Hardback Rs. 400 for the set

      Digambara Acarya Samantabhadra, 2nd century CE, composed
      the 'Aptamimamsa' in 114 karikas laying the foundation for Jaina
      philosophical works and sowing the seeds of Jaina Nyaya.

      Acarya Akalanka Deva, 5th century CE, the master of Jaina
      Nyaya, wrote the 'Ashtashati' an 800 karika commentary on this
      seminal work. In the 9th century, Acarya Vidyanandi, the great
      polemician wrote a comprehensive 8000 shloka commentary on
      Akalanka's 'Ashtashati' known as the 'Ashtasahasri'.

      With its piercing appraisals of rival darshanas and a penetrating
      critique of opponent naiyayikas, this was the authoritative work
      on Jaina Nyaya.

      With the advent of the Navyanyaya, it was felt that the school
      known as Akalanka Nyaya and its three great commentaries, the
      'Prameyakamalamartanda', the 'Nyayakumudacandra' and the
      'Ashtasahasri' would have to be rewritten or represented in a
      fresh way.

      Shvetambara ascetic Yashovijaya, a super scholar and master of
      Navyanyaya, undertook this daunting task and composed an
      8000 shloka vivarana on the 'Ashtasahasri' in the Navyanyaya style
      known as the 'Ashtasahasritatparyavivaranam', the present work.

      Hence this work carries the central ideas of Jaina philosophy as
      mooted by four great scholar-monks :
      Acarya Samantabhadra
      Acarya Akalanka Deva
      Acarya Vidyanandi
      Upadhyaya Yashovijaya

      Since the first three were Digambaras and the fourth Shvetambara,
      this great work underlines two things:
      1. The basic unity of the Jaina Doctrine
      2. When the two sects come together, great things happen

      Navyanyaya works are typically composed in the vada style. This
      work includes 35 vadas, which is an incredible intellectual feat.

      It features rebuttals to the great logicians Raghunatha Tarkashiromani;
      Raghudeva Bhattacarya; Madhusudana Sarasvati; Brahmendra;
      Gangesha Upadhyaya; Bhavadeva Tarkalankara; Bhattoji Dikshita;
      Gopala Sarasvati; Shantarakshita; Dharmakirti

      Credit goes to Muni Vairagyarativijaya, who edited this great work
      with the help of the handwritten MSS. believed to be written by
      Yashovijaya, preserved at BORI in Pune. This edition is made
      especially useful by scholarly indexing and 11 appendices.

      In the appendices under the heading Tulanatmakatippani the editor
      has referrred to more than 600 works to elucidate the words of
      Yashovijaya.

      The final press copy of this work has been proof read and
      cross-checked three times against the original MSS, to minimise errors.
      The composing and layout ensure that both 'Ashtasahasri' and
      'Ashtasahasritatparyavivaranam' may be read on the same page.

      To this end, different fonts have been used to distinguish the mula patha
      of both works. Relevant purva paksha, uttara paksha, vivarana grantha,
      citations and pramanas are located on the same page to facilitate study.

      Many MSS used to edit this work have been sourced from
      Shri Kailashasagarasuri Jñanamandir, Koba.
