Errara anyone? Please correct.


In a weighty tome (“the most complete book on Advaita ever published”) one reads the following in the Preface:
There are two dimensions in Advaita. While the empirical dimension known as the vydvahdrika [should be vyavaharika}shows Advaita as a rigorous, systematic philosophy, the trans-empirical aspect known as the piiramarthika [should be paramarthika] brings out its mystical outlook. Advaita holds that there is no incompact- stability between the empirical and the trans-empirical, because Brahman which is trans- empirical is the ground of the empirical; and there cannot be any contradiction or income- ratability between the ground and the grounded.
In another, small, book (by the way, both books are produced and printed in India), ‘The Vision of Atman’, one can read immediately under ERRATA (listing 29 such errata): ‘Errors which are obvious and can be easily noticed by the Reader have not been included in this errata’. Practical!
Actually, both books are excellent!
