    Nimbarka's commentary on the Brahma-Sutras known as the Vedanta-Parijata-Saurabha, and that of his immediate disciple Srinivasa styled the Vedanta-Kaustubha are the chief works of the school of philosophy associated with the name of Nimbarka. The latter is not, however, a mere commentary on the former, as is sometimes wrongly supposed, but a full exposition of the views expressed I the Vedanta-Parijata-Saurabha which is very terse and concise and is not always clear. Both the treatises are therefore essential for the proper understanding of the doctrine of Nimbarka.

    The learned author has given a lucid and comprehensive exposition of the doctrinal as well as the historical problems of the Nimbarka school in its entirety. Opening with a brief survey of the life of Nimbarka, the author discusses briefly the date as well as the specific works of the great philosopher. The rest of the book is devoted to a detailed analysis of the book is devoted to a detailed analysis of the doctrines of Nimbarka and his followers.
