Understanding the Pramana-s of Nyayashastra

Pramana refers to an instrument / means of gaining valid knowledge. Pramana is the foundation of any authoritative knowledge, and different darshana-s accept different Pramana-s as the basis of their principles and conclusions. The study of any shastra relies on a thorough understanding of the Pramana-s accepted and used in that shastra. Nyayashastra accepts 4 Pramana-s, namely Pratyaksha (Direct Perception), Anumana (Inference), Upamana (analogy) and Shabda (Verbal Testimony). In this course, Dr. Sathyanarayana teaches these 4 Pramana-s in detail, with special focus on Anumana, which occupies a predominant position in Nyaya.
