We are delighted to share that Dr Bhattacharya has completed transcreating the Mokshadharma Parva – the second part of The Santi Parva. He has been working on it intensively since 2011 and words are not enough for us to express our appreciation and gratitude to him for continuing what Professor P. Lal had started. Dr Bhattacharya’s transcreation includes material not found in the Poona Critical Edition and the Gita Press edition, but available in the Haridas Siddhantavagish edition.
The book is in press now and it should be out towards the end of this year. Which also means only The Anushasana Parva (even though this volume too is massive in size) will be left!
Dr. Pradip Bhattacharya
