I'm looking for sanskrit commentaries on the Gayatri mantra. I will typeset
them and make the collection available.
So far, I have the following:
(a) various commentaries from vaidyanAtha dIkshitIyam (Mainly, from
smRiti-bhAskara, mantra-dIpikA, varadarAjA-s nitya-mantra-vyAkhyAna
(b) shankara bhAShyam on the relevant portion of the chAndogya upaniShad
(c) "gAyatrI upanishad" portion of the gopatha-brAhmaNa
(d) gloss called "pratyag brahmaikya bodhikA" attributed to shankara (from
(e) another bhAshyam attributed to shankara (from Andhra)
I'm looking for additional commentaries (including Sayana's), as well
as different editions of d,e,f, since the source material I have is full of
typos. I'm particularly looking for "(e) shankara bhAShyam" since the copy I
have is missing the remainder of the section which starts like this:
"yaH savitA devaH naH asmAkaM dhiyaH karmANi dharmAdi-viShayA vA buddhiH
pracodayAt prerayet, tat tasya . . . "
In anyone is interested in helping with the proofreading, please let me
know, and I'll gladly take you up on the offer.
