    Yoga in the Visnu Purana

    Get PDF
    Though scholarship on diverse methods of yoga in the Indian traditions abounds, there has not been sufficient research that examines the traditions of yoga in the puranas. The present paper explores yoga articulated in the Visnu Purana (fourth century CE) and argues that what seems like a unified teaching is a composite of an eight-limbed yoga embedded within an instruction on proto-Sämkhya. An evaluation of the key elements of yoga as developed in this text as a whole, clarifies our understanding of the emergence of yoga and its relationship to epic formulations on the one hand and to the Classical System of the Yogasiitras of Patafijali on the other

    Sabda Pramana as a Theological Category in Vedanta Desika\u27s Tattvamuktakalapa

    Get PDF
    This article considers the Sravaisnava theologian Vedanta Desika\u27s (14th-century CE) understanding of sabdapramana and deference to sabdapramana that is evident in one of his most important expositions the Tattvamuktakalapa and its commentary the Sarvarthasiddhi. For Desika, deference to sabdapramana is motivated by belief in a particular view of reality. This would be the acceptance of Visnu as the Brahman of the upanisads, his connection to authoritative scripture, and its propagation. Furthermore, to defer to sabdapramana requires membership in a community and the requisite pedagogical training that confers the authority needed to speak for the tradition

    Textures of purāṇic transmission: A contemporary vernacular exposition of a Sanskrit purāṇa

    Get PDF
    It is well known that, contrary to the transmission of the Vedas, the purāṇas continually incorporated ever more information as they circulated as oral texts for centuries. This flexible nature has led to their denotation along with epics as ‘fluid texts’ or textual and/or cultural ‘process[es]’. Integral to popular consumption of purāṇic lore were the exegetes—expounders who were trained in reciting and interpreting the purāṇas and who incorporated material both oral and written in their delivery in temples or other performance spaces. Bailey notes that ‘fully understanding the purāṇa as a cultural phenomenon in the development and transmission of Hindu civilisation requires an understanding of how these texts were transmitted to an audience and received’ (2010: 141). While it is difficult to reconstruct such historical recitational contexts, it is possible to gain some understanding 1 Coburn (1984) makes a distinction between scripture as immutable and story as dynamic. Classifying the purāṇas, others—such as Doniger (1991: 31–41); Bailey (2003: 139–68; 2010); Matchett (2003: 129–32); Narayana Rao (2004); and Bonazzoli (1983: 269–73)—underscore the importance of medieval purāṇic transmission through their performative traditions.

Moreover, apart from the Bhāgavata Purāṇa (BhP), there is a dearth of scholarship on this aspect of purāṇas in the study of contemporary Hinduism

    DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF SENSITIVE LC-ESI-MS/MS METHOD FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF DAPAGLIFLOZIN AND SAXAGLIPTIN IN HUMAN PLASMA

    Objective: To develop and validate a sensitive liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometric (LC-ESI-MS/MS) technique for the quantification of dapagliflozin and saxagliptin in plasma by linagliptin as internal standard. Methods: Chromatography was achieved on hypersil C18 (50 mmx4 mm) 5 µ analytical column with 0.1% formic acid and acetonitrile (25:75 V/V) as mobile phase at 0.7 ml/min flow rate. Dapagliflozin, saxagliptin, and linagliptin were detected at m/z 409.14/135.0, m/z 316.2/180.13 and m/z 472.54/456.21 respectively. Drugs and internal standard were extracted by LLE (liquid-liquid extraction). Results: Developed technique was validated over 0.5-1500.0 ng/ml linear concentration range for dapagliflozin and 2.00-2000.0 ng/ml for saxagliptin. This method established with intra-batch and inter-batch precision within 2.44-8.12% and 1.25-7.14 % for dapagliflozin and 1.84-7.5 % and 1.02–6.00 % for saxagliptin. This method established with intra-batch and inter-batch accuracy for dapagliflozin within 98.86-103% and 96.98-102 % respectively and for saxagliptin within 98.05-109.06 % and 97.00-104.00 % respectively. Conclusion: Both dapagliflozin and saxagliptin were stable during three freeze-thaw cycles, long term and bench-top stability studies. The developed method was useful for the routine analysis of dapagliflozin and saxagliptin simultaneously in plasma samples
