The Moksopaya, Yogavasistha and Related Texts. Edited by JUERGEN HANNEDER. [Geisteskultur Indiens. Texte und Studien. 7 (Indologica Halensis)]. Aachen: Shaker  2005. 156 pp. EUR 29,80 ISBN 3-8322-4265-1 

The present volume is a collection of articles on various aspects of the Moksopaya literature. It deals with the original location of the work, its critical edition project, and gives the state of research on various abridged versions, many of which were until unknown. Two articles contain, as a result of two search tours, the identification and description of more than 70 manuscripts of different versions from Srinagar, Delhi, Pune, Wai and Baroda. This range of sources is extended in an article on the Persian translations of the Laghuyogavasistha. A study of the metaphorical logic of the Moksopaya completes the volume.

Ego ex animi mei sententia spondeo ac polliceor
studia humanitatis impigro labore culturum et provecturum
non sordidi lucri causa nec ad vanam captandam gloriam,
sed quo magis veritas propagetur et lux eius, qua salus
humani generis continetur, clarius effulgeat.
