Example text

Like his earlier work Ätmatattvaviveka, the Nyäyakusumänjali, too, is a treatise of controversy written in such a manner that the reader can almost imagine himself to be present at an actual debate between Udayana and his opponent. Now, one of the difficulties in studying this work is that of tracing exactly the particular opponent with whom he is engaged in arguing or whose views he occasionally refers to. In a few cases he does mention the school of thinkers against whom his arguments are directed.

It cannot be said to be directed more against the Sämkhyins than against the other deniers of Isvara; for an analysis of this chapter shows that it is devoted to an explanation of the different proofs for the existence of Isvara indicated by their logical reasons (hetuh) in its first verse. As we shall see later, of the two series of proofs, those of the first series are proposed to all opponents, while those of the second series are more specifically intended for the Mimämsakas. Consequently we cannot place the fifth chapter on a par with the other four chapters, much less consider it as a refutation of the objections of a particular school, such as the Sämkhya, against the existence of Isvara.

279, 1—280, 5 Conclusion of the explanation of the non-eternity of the Veda from the non-eternity of the sound: If the syllables are not eternal, neither the words composed of them nor the sentences formed from such words, and much less the Veda which consists of such sentences can be eternal. 280, 6—7 The opponent's attempt to defend the eternity of the Veda by interpreting eternity in the sense of an uninterrupted series is rejected, because on account of the cycles of creations and dissolutions, such an uninterrupted series cannot be given.
