Bodhasāra is a good text for University Sanskrit classes. Living up to its

advaita, yoga, Hindu practices and much more - in fine poetic Sanskrit using
striking metaphors and witty humour. This publication contains Sanskrit, in
Devanagiri and transliterated fonts, on left hand pages, and English on

Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) and India – at Pune University
and Rishikesh. The translation was praised by Sanskrit scholars in Pune and
