Contributions to advaita vedAnta literature by Sri S. N. Sastri mahodaya
will be gratefully remembered. I have read two of his works: one,
adhyAsa bhAShya (based on lectures by Sri MDS) and other, his precise
translation of Sri R. Krishnamoorthy Sastrigal's PhD dissertation on
iShTa siddhi vivaraNam. Original text of the book was at least at the
level I can understand in depth, that really helped me appreciate the
precision of Sri S. N. Sastri mahodaya's translation. It is not easy to
write translations that are brief, precise, and clear, in addition that
closely follows the original text. I think lot of other works by him
are available online. Hope we collect them all in a place where it will
be preserved for the future generations to read.
I did meet him once in Chennai and will gratefully remember his kindness.

I would very much like if that work can becompleted and offer it in dedication to Pujya Sastriji. I appreciate if Pranipataji and/or Subbjuji or anyone else can undertake that job in honor of Pujya Sasriji and complete it for publication.
