Isopanisad with the Vedarka Didhiti Commentary
by Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura
(Translated by Swami B.V. Giri)
Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura wrote his commentary to the Īśopaniṣad, the Vedārka-dīdhiti (’The sun-rays of the Vedas) in 1894. He gave a short Sanskrit explanation of each verse, followed by a translation and purport in Bengali. He also included the Sanskrit commentary of Śrīla Baladeva Vidyābhūṣaṇa as well as the Siddhāntānuvāda commentary of his learned friend, Śyāmalāla Gosvāmī Siddhānta-vācaspati. For the sake of brevity, we have only included Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura’s Vedārka-dīdhiti here.
