ShlokaVarttika of Sri Kumarila Bhatta-----A Classic From the Purva Mimamsa School of Thought

Published by Siddharth Sriram
Sri Kumarila Bhatta, one of the greatest masters of the Purva Mimamsa school, or the Karma Mimamsa as it should be properly termed (As the name Purva was given by the Uttara Mimamsa Vadins or the Vedantins who were established later), wrote this ShlokaVarttika as a commentary on the Karma Kanda or the Vedas. Jaimini wrote Mimamsa sutras as part of the program to systematize the principles of ritual in the Vedic scriptures. This and Shabara Swamin's commenntary on the Sutras (Shabara Bhashyam) developed a philosophy of ritual. But the beauty of Purva Mimamsa si that, its leading thinkers were quite independent of one another. Kumarila Bhatta openly contradicted Shabara in several areas and Kumarila's contemporary, Sri Prabhakara, in turn raised objections against Kumarila and eventually created a school of thought named after him. As a tribute to Purva-Mimamsa, the translation of this magnificent ShlokaVarttika by Ganganatha Jha is made available here. Enjoy!
