From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bhashya is a Sanskrit word for "commentary" or "exposition". It is especially used with reference to a text or religious work.

A typical Bhashya would be an interpretation of a Sutra or other classical work. It can also consist of word by word translations and the individual view point of the commentator or Bhashyakara.

There are numerous Bhashyas available on various Sanskrit works. Few examples are Brahma Sutra Bhashya by Sri Madhvacharya[1] and Sri Adi Shankara[2], Gita Bhashya and Sri Bhashya[3] by Sri Ramanuja and Mahabhashya by Pāṇini[4]
