The Kalpatharu Research Academy is indeed proud and happy to present to the world of Scholars and students of Indology this volume on Rgveda- Darsana, which is the Twelfth in the series. It marks the Hundredth publication of the Academy, since its inception in 1981. It is well known to the academic world that valuable contribution has been made to the field of studies in Indian culture by these publications. The title, Bharatiya-Samskriti-Sarvasva-Kosha, has amply been justified. The present volume constitutes the continuation of Rgarthasara, the first part of which was brought out as the eleventh volume in the series of Rgveda-Darsana last year.

The Academy acknowledges the deep debt of gratitude that it owes to the munificent blessings of the revered Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Bharatitirtha- Mahaswamiji, the chief patron of the Academy, and to the keen interest evinced by the Chairman of the Academy, Shri V.R. Gowrishankar, the Administrator of Sri Sringeri Sharada Peetham.

This is the second part of Dinakara Bhatta's Rgeithe-ssre, the first part of which was brought out as Eleventh volume of Rgvede-Dsrsene series. This part continues from the mantras numbered 100 by Dinakara and concludes the selection (201 mantras). It contains what the compiler considers the essential import (artha-sara) of the Rgvedic corpus. Alongside Dinakara's gloss, the main commentary of Sayana, on which this gloss depends, is also given. Relevant notes have been added.
