An Entry into the meanings of Ashtadhyayi Sutra-s - Part - 1 (First Chapter)

Ashtadhyayi of Panini, comprising of 8 chapters, is the preliminary and the base text for learning Vyakarana Shastra. This text contains approximately 4000 sutra-s encompassing all the grammatical concepts.

Vaishnava Simha teaches how to arrive at the meaning of the sutra-s and applications of the sutra-s present in the first chapter, without the support of any commentary.
