The great tree of Sanskrit Grammar, the seeds of which were sown by the historical giant grammarian Panini in about the 5th century B.C., was safeguarded, nourished and made eternal by stalwarts like Patanjali, Bharthari, Bhattoji Diksita, Nāgojibhatta and others. The vast span of time has, throughout centuries, produced many devoted souls who had evolved a science and philosophy of grammar and enriched the tradition of Sanskrit Grammar.

As aptly glorified by many a scholars, both Indian and Foreign, Sage Panini is undoubtedly a wonder in the history of linguistic and grammatical studies who was far ahead of what the very modern scholars of all ages could imagine in the field of grammar. He has been a source of inspiration for many and admiration for all. The mathematical accuracy with which he has evolved a system of grammar has fascinated and wondered all thinking souls whoever turned to his magnum opus Aṣṭadhyayi, a grammar book of Sanskrit language in eight chapters. He is believed to have belonged to the North Western province of India of those days during the 5th or 6th century. He was educated at the University of Taksasila. He made an authoritative description of Sanskrit language both Vedic and Classical, in all 3981 sutras (formulas) in Aṣṭādhyahi.

Katyayana or Vararuchi, believed to be a native of South India studied the Paninian Grammar together with many other systems existing during that period and composed vārtika as glosses to the original sutra for purposes of correction, completion or explanation. He made an indepth study of the sutra in the light of colloquial form of Sanskrit language too and criticized he Paninian rules at places.


Vaiyakarana Bhushanasara, by Shri Kaunda Bhatta of the 17th Century ACE, is an authentic text on the science and philosophy of Sanskrit grammar. As a commentary or as an explanation of the verses of Bhattoji Dikshita (his uncle), a bigger text named Bhushana was first written by Shri. Kaunda Bhatta. Bhushanasara is its abridgement. This establishes the theories of the school of Sanskrit grammarians, while refuting the views of Nyaya and Meemamsa. Kaunda Bhatta was the son of Rangoji Bhatta, nephew of Bhattoji Dikshita, who had authored many Adviata manuals.

Bhushanasara is a very useful text for those who wish to get firsthand knowledge about the standpoint of Sanskrit grammarians in the matters of Sanskrit sentence-meaning known as Shabdabodha. This text compiles and presents various theories pertaining to Sanskrit grammar in a very systematic manner. The final theories found in the Mahabhashya, Vakyapadiya and Siddhantakaumudi are summarized and presented in this text in their proper place.

Bhushanasara is in curriculum for the students of Sanskrit Grammar and Shabdabodha in many universities. Many stalwarts in Sanskrit Grammar like Prof. Kielhorn, Prof. S.D.Joshi and others had earlier worked on this text. But, a complete translation of Bushanasara with exhaustive explanation was not available. This edition fulfills the long awaited need.
