Book Description

It is indeed a matter of great pleasure that the Orissa Chair in Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, Tirupati is bringing out a bibliography on Shri Jagannatha and Sri Chaitanya Maha Prabhu.

One of the main objectives of the Orissa Chair established in Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, Tirupati with the munificent funds provided by the Government of Orissa, is not only to conduct intensive research on the issues related with Shri Jagannatha, the philosophy of Sri Chaitanya Maha Prabhu and Sri Jayadeva’s works and publish the findings, but also to facilitate the research activity by providing necessary information and material to the researchers. It is needless to say that the publication of the bibliography is the first step in this direction. Although the present edition includes contents only on Shri Jagannatha and Shri Chaitanya Maha Prabhu, I am sure the Chair will take necessary steps to bring out a bibliography on Shri Jayadeva also in a near future.

I heartily congratulate the Co-ordinator Dr. J. Ramakrishna and also the Research Associates involved in the preparation of the bibliography.

The Orissa Chair in Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha was established with the munificent grant of Rs. 50 lakhs kindly sanctioned by the then Chief Minister of Orissa, Vidyavachaspati Sri Janaki Ballav Patanaik on behalf of the Government of Orissa. The late Prof. S.B. Raghunathacharya, the then Vice-Chancellor of the Vidyapeetha was instrumental in persuading; the Government of Orissa to established the chair. Prof. Ramaranjan Mukharjee, Former Chancellor of the Vidyapeetha played a key role in getting the chair established. The chair was inaugurated on 15th October, 2000 by Hon’ble Justice Sri Ranganatha Mishra, Former Chief Justice of India and Chairman, Central Sanskrit Board.

The Orissa Chair was established in the Vidyapeetha with the aim of carrying out intensive and extensive research and to bring out Publications on three important aspects of not only the culture of Orissa but that of India also viz Lord Sri Jagannatha and his cult, Sri Chaitanya and his Philosophy, and Sri Jayadeva and his literature.

As a first step in the direction of making know to the world the hidden treasures of Utkala, the Vice Chancellor of the Vidyapeetha Prof. D. Prahlada Char and the then Co-ordinator of the chair, Dr. R. Devanathan decided to prepare bibliography on these aspects to facilitate research. The then Research Associates employed in the chair, Sri Kailash Chandra Dash and Sri Kailash Chandra Nanda were deputed to Orissa to collect details of various books on the three aspects mentioned above. But this edition contents only two area i.e. Sri Jagannatha and Sri Chaitanya. Both the scholars collected relevant materials from various University Libraries, Harekrishna Mahatab State Library and the libraries of Orissa within a limited time at their disposal.
