    Description
    Epistemology of the Dvaita school of thought is presented in this short monograph Pramaapaddhati - The Path of Proofs, authored by Sri Jayatirtha. Epistemology is the science of knowledge that deals with the origin and nature of cognitive events and their means.

    Acarya Madhva, the proponent of the Dvaita school, has explained about the epistemology of this new school in his works. Since Madhvas language is profound and the elucidations are scattered over his several works, it is difficult to comprehend for a novice. Hence, Pramaapaddhati was composed by his successor of third generation Sri Jayatirtha. The simple and captivating style of this work is sure to ignite the interest in the readers to conduct further study in detail. This work is not only regarded as a standard textbook of Dvaita studies, but also considered as a basic authentic work in the Dvaita dialectic literature.

    The work is classified into three chapters; Pratyaka, Anumana and Agama as a compendious yet full treatment of the Dvaita epistemology in smaller captions. Its discussion on the standpoints of other schools on various topics and their criticism is not much detailed. However, it is systematized and presented in an easily comprehensible style that can make even a novice understand the intricacies of Dvaita epistemology. The unique commentary skill of Sri Jayatirtha comprises of profound scholarship, style of exposition, lucid language, commitment to the original author, views on opposition with thorough knowledge, logical integrity, appropriate and comprehensive method of thinking.

    This work is rendered into English by Prof (Dr) Shrinivasa Varakhedi adopting the mirror-translation method.
