The Three Satalcas on Niti, Sringliraand Vai.nlgya.,

r the Vakyapadtya ( cn~lIqHf.:q, a grammatical COIDr I mentary tn terse and pithy Sauskritprose), and the Bhattikftvya (~EfiIQ:q"(, a Grammatical poem ) are the works which are generally ascribed to Bhartri ... han. Almost all the scholars who have made their acquaintance with Eharlrihari and his works are unanimous in then- opinion that Bhartrihari is

. '

the undtsputed a.uthor of the Satakas and the

VAkyapadiya. which furnishes us with a car .. tain clue to the solution of the much disputed question of Bhartrihari's age and authorship. But as to Bhartrihali's authorship of the BhattikfLvya different persons hold different, opinions. However erudite diseussions on the point by Messrs. Oolebrooke, Telang, Peterson &c. have proved. itbe .. yond any shadow of doubt that Bhattikavi. (~~~) the author of the ~rNtQq is quite a different person, and. he cannot be identified with Bhartrihari ( wi\{'f.t) the author of the Satakas. To make Bhartrihari the author of the m'!Efilo1f there is no stronger ground than the identity of name. Bharata ( ~ ) in Iris commentary on ~ gb.-es the name of the -author as '~nbd<, but Bays nothing more about it, In another commentary of ~ifiloq w.hioh

~ has been published in Calcutta, the author is described as the son of Sri Swami (.m aliit) and ns a great Grammarial1. This opinion is also corroborated by Colebrooke ill Iris essay on Sansl{rit and P1'3J:rit

"considering the gre'tt uncertainty which attaehea to Hindu Literary History, we mar perhaps consider our .. selves fortu.nate that there is something Iike a con.~en· sus as to the date of these poems.

Bhru-trlhm-i meets his R~ni Bht\nulnnti ('I~i~liIm ) after long separation, for which the latter expostmlates with him, and the R!l..ja makes some religious excuse for the prolonged absence from her. In the meantime, seeing a. suttee mounting the blazing pyre of her dead husband, the RajA. extols her conduct to the skies before the R{lni; but she remarks tbat she does


not Bee the propriety of 0. suttee's ]lnving l'CCOUl'SC to real fire when the fire of separation iR quito sufficient to burnher immediately to nshes, Though n Iittle incredulous, Bhurtrihari then ngrees with his Rilni and

takes his leave of her to go out shooting, to which she reluctantly and sorrowfully consents, on the condition of her being allownrl to remain staudin g at the. gate anxiously looking out the path of his. spccrly return,

European scholars will no doubt laugh thnt 1 make much of these trifling p1aYEl.

A. lie cannot last long. Tho remarkable Incidents of Bhartzihazi'a )jfe being framed Into o, play which is 80 popular with the general public speaks much of the high esteem and honor in which Bhartrihu.ri is still held by them~ t

As for the different works wherein the S16kas from Bha.l·trihaTi's Sn.tnka.s have been traced out, ,\YC would only beg to draw the render's attention to their respective footnotes where full partioulara have Inva.riably been given of them. However, we have also thought it advisable to arrange them for brevity nnd clear 11 oos,' sake, ill a tabular form which will enable the reader to make a prompt and ·rendy reference to them at a moment's time. It needs only be stated thnt the numbers given in this list will be found corresponding to those of the stanzas as arranged in the Kiti, SrjngAra, and VairAgyn Sntakns of the present edition, and not to the numbers of the verses of the works 01" books to which they are traced.

drop this point without further comment,

This line of argument ,,111, it h; hoped, furnish some clue to the solution of Bhartrihnri's age, Us well as to the conclusion of these Satakas being considered a genuine composition or a mere compilation by Bhartrihari.

To do full justice to the subject J cannot bel p bringing to the notice of the render that leaving out the number of times a stanza has made its nppearance in the foregoing table we 1l1ny safely observe that out of the total of 326 stanzas as given in this edition no less than 182 hnve been found to exist in the 43

pieces enumerated above, and that of these 182 near-ly -40 verses have figured from three to seven tunes in the diagram. This gives us a '-ery distinct and indi~p~tab]e pr?Df of the proverbial find sub8~1.11tinll)ol)'" uIanty the Sat.."lka~ Imve 80 ~eseryed]y enjoyed from the ye1:Y date of thelr production to the present day.

. (1) From the appearance or several Slokns

in tunny of the current Sanskrit works it is argued

that the Satnkns nrc n mere collection of elegnnt; ex-

tract.s from 11111110)"0\18 authors. But if ,YO study the point a little carefully \YC wifl finr] thnt 1110St of the works in wlrieh they m-e met, wirh nrc in thcllu::c]ves mere collections and not eompoeitious c. g. the Pancharaton, S.ldr.ntnn, Snptnrntun, Ashtarntnn, Hitr'pndes!1, &c. &c. ·lVllcrc..fls in others as 'qi'raq~:e-r;i, qnmrsr~ltf:, ~I&q~r,:. U~N(Jrq{q5;:j itl'ri-\;I~~m: L~C. &c, the Slukas are merely quoted either nuonyrnoualj- or ns Bhnrtrihnri's or as some others'. ..A gnin, there nrc n


few, ycry few, sny some t'\'olvc S18kns, 'which nrc

&C. These mny harmlessly IJ!! considered as Inter- I

polations either in the Sl.t.3kns or iu the l"'urks thr-rn- ! selves. Besides, there i~ a cert:l.ill thrcatUikc thought i which pervades them all and unit-es thorn Into one i whole, 'Ye nrc therefore in a posi tion to ~!ly that, the f

Centuries of Bharbrihari" intoEnglish was his sugges- I tion, and I gladly rook tlte hint .. Though I had not, as already noted, the least i(lea. of keeping ill" word, still the auspicious moment in which the pledge wa-s given led me on to set about the work in real earnest. The greater was my advance in the selt-iniposed task. the 1110re hopeful became the prospect .. At last the translation was finished. I wrote to the energetic Secretary of the Bombay Th~osophicnl Society for .its publication, who undertook to do it on condition

of the manuscript being approved by his European brothers, Ooasequently, the translation of the \Tairagya Sataka was sent him about the month of November. But the manuscript was kindly returned by him after a few days together with a printed pamphlet entitled tho 'Pro,\crbiaI PJli1o~ophy of Bharbriharir and a pa.per bearing the autograph note of Ool ... Olcott to whom the marmscrip't and pamphlet were submitted. for inspection. On readinrr


the paper I found that the learned Pre5i(lent of the

Theosophical Society had remarked that both flrese needed corrections of idiom, the Panlphlet '-c~y nrueh f the manuscript , r ery little, and that he had no Lime to take it up tor the present.

Ii luny also be stated ihnt this trnnslntion was submitted for Iria perusal to 001. C':·. B. Trc,"or O. 84 L, tho thou enliglrtened ..t\.f,.tCnt, to the Governor General for the Slates of Rajputana, in the·boginlling of j\J ureh 1895. After going through a considerable portion of tlJ(~ Nitisntnkn. Iie roturned it. with tlu\nks and evinced his full .synlpathy and Rl)pr.,lbati<.\1\ of the undertaking.

H. H, theA-fa harajatlhiraj Sa,,,,ai Praf.np Sinpbji's translntion is ill Hindi Poetry: Dobtls, Soratblls nnd C;:hltl1ppayns. It consists of three chapters on Niti, Sl'ingara and Vnini!,'yn, nnd is ~ery terse and pithy and hence diffieulf to gralii!' f01" an ordinary Tender.

The Billui l>rose TransIntion of tho Satnkns by ]:lnndit Rishabha Dntt S!1~tl"i of J 01lhp01'0 iR neither correct. nor good ..

I~ After the remarks of 001. Olcott .. it is needIess to elwell more upon the merits of the first. It contains only the two Satnkns of Niti and "'tnirilgyn.

II. Prof. Ta,vney's is no doubt, a vcrr splendid and elegant translation But as it is ill verso, it is oither more or less than tJle origi nal, 1\1 ol"eOY~r t ]1 ore nrc to be found only the Niti and Vnirilgya Satakas

III It ( Mr~ DUl~gA, Pl·nb3.fl's tranalntion ) i~ of

COUl"::.e better than the Proverbial Philosophy of Bhnr. ti-ihar], but it is not quite up to the point, In t.hi«, too, the Sring-alla Satakn is also wnnfing,

From these remarks it wifl not be quite difficult to sec that the present edition is to £11 up a necessary gap regarding the Satakns of Bhui-trihnri. Besides a Iarge number of COpiOl1B notes (both critical find explanatory) at the end of the volume, the original Sunskrit Text being Innnediately followed l)y Hindi and English translntions) and n variety of oitat ions of


parallel pa&snges from Sanskrrt and EnglisIl authors,

constitute n Hovel feature of the present edition. An English translation of the SdllgUl"n S~tnkfl. is, I think, hc~"C presented for the first tiU1C to the pub1ic. T'herc l)Blng really nothing which can properly lJC called obscene ~nd immoral, I do not think thnt anv fi)?ology IS needed for the insertion of the Srj])gll~'l Sa'b.\ka4 On the contrary, the btallzas nrc to be f~l1l1d compnl'ativeJy quite dccent and innocent hy the

Though there are some five or six wel'l-known big planets like Jupiter: and others in the heavens, yet Rdhut the headless demon, is ne~er inclined to ehow the least cause of hatred to any of them; but being anxious to pro~e the snperiority of his unusual valour he always tries to eat up or eclipse his real enemies the Sun (the lord of day) and the Moon (the beloved spouse of night).

PLRPOBT.. The hlgh-Eouled are never inclined to wreak their ~engeance upon others but their real enemies whether big or small.

For the Bon of the HimfUayA when his father was subjected to the severities of IIndra's anger, the cutting of his own sides ( wings) by the heavy strokes of proud Indra's thunderbolt gIving out fire nt every attack would have been much preferable to the mean e1fort of saving his person by leaving alone his venerable father in the midst of the sad plight and hastening to drown himself into the waters of the deep ocean.
