Welcome to the new board
« on: January 16, 2009, 04:37:18 AM »
For the past twenty-odd years I have read the English translation of the Tripura Rahasya and found it to be an invaluable source of guidance.

This ancient Sanskrit work, along with the Srimad Bhagavata and Advaita Bodha Deepika, was recommended by Bhagavan for those who found difficulty in understanding His teachings.

For those who are unfamiliar with this work, you can download the entire book from dozens of websites - just do a search for Tripura Rahasya.

There are a number of errors and unclear sections in the book and I suspect different hands have been at work in editing the English translation over the years, even the most recent reprint still contains many errors.

Also a number of verses were missed out in the English translation and these should be added again.

Perhaps those members who are familiar with Sanskrit and English might consider clarifying it for the benefit of all.
