Dear Sri Krishnamachari mama

I would like to bring to your attention the re-publication of a book
by my grandfather Sri K. E. Parthasarathy intially published in the

This book (i do not recall the title) is a comparitiive study of Sri
Shankara's and Sri Bhattar's commentaries on  Sri Vishnu Sahasara

The current publishers (Ganesh Publications) have got another
manuscript based on Dwaita interpretation and is in the process of
incorporating that as part of the re-publication. 

What I am told is the new book  would be a compilation of all three
commentaries. They are planning to print about 500 copies or so the
first go around.

I'll keep you posted on the publication date as I get more
