About this Item

The Brihatkatha Shloka Samgraha of Buddhasvamin considered to be one of the Sanskrit redactions of the Brihatkatha of Gunadhaya in Cantos 28 displays altogether a different norm of descriptive delineation as compound to the contents of the other two versions e.g. Brihatkathamanjari of the prolific writer Kshemendra and Somadeva`s Kathasarit Sagara both having eighteen Lambakas subdivided into gucchas and tarangas respectively. The Poem begins with an encomium of Ujjayini and the death of MahÈsena or Pradyota. Gopala, his son, succeeded him, but afflicted with the talk that he was a patricide, he abdicated in favour of his younger brother Palaka warned as if by a heavenly sign, he gave up his throne and Gopala`s son Avantivardhana ascended the throne. Then comes the story of his love with Surasamanjari. The 28th canto leaves us with Naravahanadatta in the company of Bhagirathayashas. The Brihatkatha Shloka Samgraha of Buddhasvamin was out of print for many years and there was a great need for it among Sanskrit scholars. The present edition contains not only the original Sanskrit text but also includes an authentic English translation with various notes useful for scholarly world. Printed Pages: 768.
