Yuktidipika – Ancient commentary of Sankhyakarika

YuktidipikaThe Yuktidīpikā excels over all other commentaries in many respects. It contains all the excellences of a complete philosophical text such as aphorisms, means of knowledge, components, completeness, statement of uncertainty and decisiveness, brief enunciation, detailed statement, succession, naming the objects and advice. It illustrates all these elements of Sāṅkhyakārikā and its approach to the wording of the kārikās is quite critical and analytical. The author also gives the etymological meaning of the technical terms to justify their use by Īśvarakṛṣṇa. The Yuktidīpikā justifies not only the reading of the Sāṅkhyakārikā but also the contents of the Sāṅkhya System. It is the only text which saves the system of Sāṅkhya from the intellectual onslaught at the hands of other systems.

Though Yuktidīpikā is complete and very unique commentary on Sāṅkhya still this is taught rarely in any college or university. Keeping the significant of this text, Chinmaya International Foundation Shodha Sansthan and Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth jointly organise the textual workshop for ten days on Yuktidīpikā, to learn and discuss the topics deeply and thoroughly.
