The Vaisesika sutras by Kanada

Excerpt:
The Vaisesika Sutras of Kanada, with the Commentary of Sakara Misra and extracts from the gloss of Jayanarayana and the Bhasya of Chandrakanta, was first published in tho years 1910 and 1911. In spite of the numerous imperfections of the work, it appears to have awakened a lively interest in the study and propagation of one of the oldest systems of Hindu Philosophy. 




For, its publication lias been followed by a number of very valuable contributions to the literature of the subject from the pen of some eminent scholars. First and foremost amongst them is the Positive Sciences of the. Ancient Hind-tut by Dr Brajendranath Seal, M. A. Ph. D. (1915). Dr Seal observes that "Hindu scientific ideas and methodology (e. g. the inductive method or methods of algebraic analysis), have deeply influenced the course of natural philosophy in Asia in the East as well aa in the "West in China and Japan, as well as in the Saracen Empire. 



Vaiśeṣika Sūtra also called Kanada sutra, is an ancient Sanskrit text at the foundation of the Vaisheshika school of Hindu philosophy. The sutra was authored by the Hindu sage Kanada, also known as Kashyapa. According to some scholars, he flourished before the advent of Buddhism because the Vaiśeṣika Sūtra makes no mention of Buddhism or Buddhist doctrines; however, the details of Kanada's life are uncertain, and the Vaiśeṣika Sūtra was likely compiled sometime between the 6th and 2nd century BCE, and finalized in the currently existing version before the start of the common era.
