Different Examples of Bhashya and its Meaning

Posted by on July 31, 2017

There are fourteen types of examples given Bhagavan Bhashyakaara in different portions of the Bhashya. Though all these are interpreted in the same way as to establish superimposition and similarly we should de-superimpose, we find a unique nature in each of these example. Each one stands for removing some or the other type of erroneous knowledge. (???????? ?????? bhr?nti niv?ra?a)
