Example text

Constraints become necessary when the injunction does not lay down specific means or when the means laid down are not available. The injunction may say: "Tie up the beast" or it might say, "Tie up the beast to a post made of paläsa" and a post made oîpalàsa may be unavailable, priest is then forced to consider substitutes. The observation that verb "to tie" (bandh) has semantic expectations (äkänksä) for objects £f a certain kind such as tree trunks, pegs and posts, narrows the range of possible substitutes.

The latter requirement meant that constraints on the choice of substitutes had to be grounded in actual words of Vedic injunctions. This problem is addressed by Bhartrhari in JS3-5. My present concerns are confined to the solutions offered to the problem in JS3. The vocabulary of grammatical analysis had at some time in the early past been modelled very consciously after the vocabulary of ritual practices. Ritual practices consisted in the performance of certain complicated rites laid down by the Vedas.

I shall suggest that Bhartrhari's unwillingness to give a Systematic accounting within the traditional framework of both krsnatila simsapävrksa contributed to his metaphysical view of ideal objects. Section vi: I shall translate Sambandhasamuddesa (SS) 40-41 where ri presented his analogy between language and crystals. I will suggest that the analogy illustrates a great many features of Bhartrhari's theory of indirect names. Section vii: I will note Heläräja's rejection of the crystal analogy and try to trace his motives for rejecting it.
