The following pages embody the text of a Sanskrit work on 'dosa' (poetical blemishes) by one Ganga- nanda Kavlndra,an inhabitant of Tirabhukta or Mithila. It is the only Sanskrit work, so far known, devoted exclusively to an exposition of this topic. The work is divided into five chapters, each called by the name of 'Drsti'. The first chapter deals with the definition of 'dosa' and its classification. The definition of the 'verbal faults' (3*5193) 1) has been examined and illustrated. The remainig chapters treat respecti- vely, in a similar manner, of the faults of aspects of WOK'S, of sentences, of meanings and of rasa. In the last chapter there appears also a discussion as to when a dosa is regarded as a guna, when its does not involve any defect at all, or when it is neutral so that it can not be treated either as a guna or as a dosa. The author, whose name appers as Gangananda in the colophon, was a Maithil Brahman,beingthe younger brother of one Raghunatha to whom he refers (p. 37). Nothing is known about his parentage. He was a protege of Mahārāja Karṇa of Bikaner. The reign of Karna-Sri Lui Karna Deva-,son of Maharaja Bikaji is generally assigned to 1506-1527 A. D. Hence Ganga- nanda may be rightly placed in the beginning of the 16th century. 🔍+ 🔍° 🔍- ⟲ ⟳ Edit summary (optional) Status Needs more work Proofed once Proofed twice Not relevant Only registered users can save changes.
