Dear Colleagues,

I have the pleasure to announce the following publication:

Bruno LoTurco, Mokṣopāya-Ṭīkā of Bhāskarakaṇṭha. The Fragments of the Nirvāṇaprakaraṇa. Part I. Critical Edition. (Studia Indologica Universitatis Halensis. 1.) Halle: Universitaetsverlag Halle-Wittenberg 2011. pp. 282. Hardbound. Price: 48,– EUR. Subscription Rate (valid January 2011): 42,– EUR. ISBN 978-3-86977-028-4

Brief description:
This volume continues the publication of the fragments of the Mokṣopā­ya with the commentary of the Kashmiri Shaivite philosopher Bhāskarakaṇṭha critically edited by Walter Slaje (Mokṣo­pā­ya-Ṭī­kā I–IV). It contains the critical edition of the first half of the large extant fragment of the Nir­vā­ṇa­pra­ka­raṇa — the sixth section of the Mokṣopāya, the last and by far the most substantial —  with Bhās­ka­ra­kaṇṭha’s commentary Nir­vā­ṇa­ṭīkā. The Mokṣo­pā­ya, a huge philosophico-soteriological work probably composed by a Kashmiri author in the tenth century of our era, was the original version of what would become the Yo­ga­vā­siṣ­ṭha, which enjoyed enormous popularity in India, in certain regions second only to the two great epic poems.

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.
