A study of tarka – particularly navya nyaya – gives us the vocabulary which is used extensively in the discussion of all shastras. The basic requirement is a study of the tarka sangraha along with one of the commentaries (usually the dipika or nyaya bodhini). Students are expected to memorize the mula text as
well as the lakshanas.
